I Think I May Have Narcolepsy

You know that thing where you get a weird spot on your body and you type a description of it into google hoping it isn't some awful terminal illness and then you find a bunch of people on forums screaming "THAR BE CANCER"?
Well anyway, I was reading up on Narcolepsy because I was researching for this drama assignment (Note: Somehow I clicked my way through links from tvtropes to the "Ice Man" who is a serial killer. Most disturbing, creepiest, questioning the inherent kindness and faith that I have in humanity moment of the month. )
So anyway, I was reading up on the symptoms of narcolepsy on wikipedia ( I know, I know) and I noticed that I do sometimes have a mild case of what the symptons describe. I read a bit of Jimmy Kimel's experience with his narcolepsy about feeling tired from 3 to 6 and the feeling of something sitting on his brain which I definitely have that same feeling, even on days where I never did much.
Maybe I'm just being paranoid (like I usually tend to be). But maybe a visit to the doctor is in order. I can't help but think that if it is narcolepsy that I somehow did it through not sleeping enough.
Anyone besides me notice how many blogs people post about their sleep patterns? I guess sleep is a big issue.
Song of the Blog Post:
THE MOST RELAXING MUSIC IMAGINABLE (Apparently. Your mileage may vary. Personally, it makes me want to punch someone in the nose to spite them. Maybe its because I have video view-count envy. I mean, THIS gets 6 million views!? You gotta be kiddin' me.)
Also, to the people who made bots designed to trawl a gigantic net over youtube to fish for friend requests: STOP IT. Its a little disappointing to think that someone has friended me because they think we have similar interests/hobbies only to find that they have one or two videos up and 603 suckers they managed to get into clicking the "Accept" button.
