Narcolepsy is the latest thing to give me trouble. We went out for lunch on Sunday as an early Mothers Day treat and I almost face planted my lunch. A coat on the table meant I could have a nap while eating. There's no choosing when I sleep, it's when my body allows me to stay awake.
Yesterday I fell backwards into the bath. Chris had left me sitting on the side and as he turned round to get a towel I fell backwards into the empty bath. Legs dangling and arms flailing he picked me up and put me back in place. It's a good job he's there.
I've had more falls than I can count this week. I've had a bad cold which made me worse and quite weak.
This Sunday is wear purple day for Epilepsy so I will be wearing purple to support my fellow epilepsy fighters!
