Annie Howard, LA based filmmaker, editor at The Hollywood Reporter

Narcolepsy with Cataplexy

Generally, narcolepsy comes about between the ages of 10-25, presenting with symptoms like excessive daytime sleepiness, cataplexy, sleep disruption, sleep paralysis and hallucinations. It takes most people an average of seven doctors and ten years to get the correct diagnosis. What exactly triggers narcolepsy is unknown and being studied. Cataplexy presents as the weakening of muscles when you feel strong emotions and is often a sign of narcolepsy but does NOT always present with narcolepsy. Join us in this episode as we discuss Annie’s journey of symptoms, diagnosis and treatment!!

Weekly Challenge:

Beautiful friends, this week you are going to be glowing because we are getting hot and steamy in the tub. That’s right: The challenge is to take as many hot baths as are appropriate for you!! This is a super duper self-love practice. Calm the nerves, find some quiet, fall in love with yourself and treat your body how it deserves to be treated. If you do not have a tub, I urge you to treat yourself to the Korean spa or a sauna this week.

Follow me of IG @sheajackie for bath updates! Don’t forget that updates are often in my stories..
