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"?

No?

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.

    Well, if you think something's wrong, it is a very good idea to visit a doctor, especially if it's something you're worried about. Do it ASAP for your health, OK?

    Alright, although I don't think narcolepsy is really fatal anyway.

    My sister has narcolepsy so I'm something of an amateur expert on it. Do you fall asleep at odd times, like every time you get in the car and someone drives you somewhere? Do you struggle to stay awake when your body and mind aren't focused on something?

    I recommend getting a sleep study done. It's basically where you have doctors who record you sleeping patterns over the course of a night. They wake you up periodically and then ask you to go to sleep again.

    There's more to it I'm sure, but my sister was sort of talking about how she finally got to see an episode of Little House on the Prairie so I don't have all the details. But yeah, that's my advice. And pray to God you don't have narcolepsy because the medication for it is pricy.

    Update: It could just be sleep apnea!
