The Fog Is Lifting

Things seem to be getting better after having my medication increased. I don’t feel like I am zoning out as often. I still feel like I am having trouble paying attention, staying focused, and am having difficulty remembering things. However, even when taking stimulant medication I have heard that people with narcolepsy still have trouble with those sorts of things and have lower cognitive functioning than people without narcolepsy, which kind of sucks. I am happy to say that I am functioning a lot better than I was several months ago which is a very good thing. Hopefully after having my Vyvanse increased a few more times will have me functioning at an even better level. I often feel like I am a slower thinker than other people around me, and my brain seems like it is a lot slower than it was even a few years ago. Fortunately, I have been feeling a little more like myself lately. Things finally seem to be getting better since I was diagnosed with narcolepsy last year. For awhile it seemed like things kept getting more difficult, I still have some brain fog from time to time but it is less severe than it was a few months ago. Writing about my struggles also seems to have helped me substantially. My wife has also been a great supporter and has helped me get through some tough times, and I am eternally grateful for that.
