Oh yeah I work in a hospital and I have to get there by 5:30 so I go to bed around 8pm and wake up at 3am. But despite the 7 hours of sleep I get I constantly find myself exhausted. I was basically talking to a coworker and got extremely annoyed and then a few moments later I had this damp feeling spread from head to toe and my head and shoulders just kind of gave out. It lasted maybe 30 seconds and I could move again. The same thing has happened before and the last time I can remember it happening was that someone surprised me with some news and I just lost control of my head and shoulders. It doesn’t happen all the time and doesn’t always happen with the same emotions. This year I’ve had 3 episodes to far and I didn’t realize they were cataplexy cause I was still tired during those times and I thought I was fighting off sleep
