Hi! I haven’t read all your links, but I wanted to chime in about CBD oil. I live in a state where TCH is illegal, and was just dx’d narcoleptic with cataplexy a few weeks ago, after 18 years of trying to figure it out.
A couple of years ago I started having pretty severe catapletic episodes as well as severe anxiety triggering them. My acupuncturist had me start taking CBD and the cataplexy nearly entirely went away. I went from several severe episodes a week to 1 a month or less.
I did not realize that THC was regulating my REM sleep, and was already using it before starting the CBD, so I know it was the addition of the CBD and not the THC that was helping me. I look forward to reading all of your links and posting more as I learn. I’m so happy to find this group!
