Typical ‘How do I get my family to understand me’ post by DirtGypsy in Narcolepsy

[–]DirtGypsy[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I took Modafinil but was having to split my pills into quarters and take them like every 2 hours for it to work. I took Armodafinil for a week and it didn’t really do anything. I got defeated and stopped taking either because I’m mostly functional without it and too scared to try Xywav.

Thankfully my boyfriend is extremely understanding and pushes me to be better without judging me or forcing me, and so I think my stress about all of this will fade pretty dramatically when we move in together. I just wish there was a way to get my parents to understand. I think accepting they won’t and not stressing about it like you said is honestly the best bet. Thanks for the advice! :)

Anyone else keep saying ‘g-suite’ in their heads. I don’t really like the name.

It was a really hard choice between the girl in pink with the bird on her head and the goat. I just loved the goats silly little sweat bands

Wakix by FactSeekerIre in Narcolepsy

I am not on Wakix but I do take Modafinil 200mg. After having Covid in November I was exhausted all day for about 2 weeks and felt like my Modafinil was doing nothing. Eventually I slowly started feeling more awake & less fatigued and felt back to ‘normal’ about 4 weeks after. Its most likely post covid fatigue. I talked to my neurologist about it at the time and he told me to just stay consistent with taking my medicine and let him know if I didnt feel better in a month or two, but I did. I’d just wait it out! Post Covid sucks

Its black shading! The cream she used on it before wrapping it was green so it kind of gave the whole thing a green tint :) the red eyes are my fav too!
