Living with narcolepsy: a personal journey

Lifestyle Update

OK, so I managed to quit smoking and pretty much exclude any kind of alcohol from my system again. Hurray for me! It’s now been almost 4 weeks and I guess my body has been detoxing. I felt it was time to join a gym. So I did. Last week I had my gym induction with Serena Williams look a like instructor and my exercise plan has been completed.  I have gained weight of lately but my narcoleptic friends seems to think it’s from taking Clomipramine. I am not sure. Now, it’s time to move some fat and get some happy endorphins energy into my like. I have been to spinning, Zumba, yoga and body combat classes and my body is aching but it’s a happy ache. A jittery and mischievous aching in my muscles. I am taking it slow and rest in between days of work-out. A friend comes with me to exercise so I don’t need to worry about falling down or falling asleep.

Tomorrow, I am going to try to cut out sugar. For that to work effectively, I cannot miss a single dosage of medicine. If I do, I will start to fall asleep in public places again. Wish me good luck because I think it will be my most difficult challenge so far! Good night and  may you all have amazing, fascinating and delightful dreams!
