Narcolepsy (cont.)

Support Groups and Counseling

If a person is diagnosed with narcolepsy, he or she can join a support group. By becoming a member of a support group, one gets emotional support from people who are having similar problems. It will alleviate isolation and the feeling that he or she is the only one with the condition.

The Narcolepsy Network can help locate a support group in one's area.
