Living With Narcolepsy

How to survive and thrive with narcolepsy

“Wide Awake and Dreaming” By Julie Flygare – Great Book!

Written By: Tonya Steele - Apr• 23•13



“Wide Awake and Dreaming” by Julie Flygare is a great book!  I have had the privilege to meet Julie at the 2011 Narcolepsy Network Conference in Vegas.  She is a very inspirational speaker and person.  I believe her story will inspire anyone who has narcolepsy and will enlighten families of what it is like for narcoleptic’s each day.  As a narcoleptic you will feel a connection to someone else who knows what you are going through.   Families will get an account of what it is has been like for someone else who has narcolepsy other than you.  It will also explain many aspects of narcolepsy that we sometimes have a hard time explaining to our families and friends.  Most of all it will encourage those with narcolepsy to not give up and that although we may be “Wide Awake and Dreaming”, we can still beat the odds and reach for our dreams!

To learn more about Julie Flygare and her recently published book “Wide Awake and Dreaming” you can visit Julie’s site at or you can go to to order her book directly.

“Wide Awake and Dreaming” by Julie Flygare is also a great resource to have around to share with family and friends.  I have ordered a few extras and have given them to family members to read and pass on to the next member.  Hopefully this will help my family and friends better understand my world as a narcoleptic.  I would encourage you to do the same if you have narcolepsy or if you know someone who has narcolepsy to get “Wide Awake and Dreaming” by Julie Flygare for them to read.

I hope you enjoy Julie’s book as much as I did and also that you have a blessed and wakefull day!

Until next time…
