As long as it’s been since I’ve made a blog post it seems appropriate to title my post as I have! I’m sure many people have questions about narcolepsy and how it affects my life; or how I get things done in spite of my narcolepsy.
In my life it seems that I’ve had to rely more on technology in my daily life to fill in those times when energy isn’t optimum. That is not however to say that I don’t ‘like’ to work physically.
There are definitely plenty of things I love doing physical work wise but I definitely do better at things I’m particularly interested in (perhaps a ‘spectrumy’ thing idk?).
Around the age of 12-13 when dial up internet was first showing up and AOL cd roms were coming in the mail where I was living it opened up a desire to learn how to make money on the internet as well as general desires for self employment so I could work in a more stress free personalized manner.
I have seen it all. Basically growing up on the generation that saw the first booms of the internet from second hand commodity to near absolute necessity I have been obsessed from my undiagnosed narcoleptic, sleep-apnea, insomnia and all around neurodivergent teenage years on how the internet could help my quality of life.
The internet taught me social skills I could use in person. It gave me a filtering mechanism whereby I could learn how to better think before I speak (so as to be better understood not necessarily to mask my neurodivergent nature).
Over the years the internet helped me gain some modicum of financial betterment.
Most of my early music business was conducted through MySpace and Facebook and found myself having many business communications online to get me gigs and side jobs. I learned legitimate survey sites that I could make cash back and earn on offers. I was accepted as an agent for the US Monitor. Eventually I started to get into Ebay and various other auction sites for sales as well.
As a treated and diagnosed narcoleptic my quality of life is much better these days than it used to be but there are definitely still challenges and I’m not getting any younger.
If you’d like a deeper look at how I’m keeping-things-a-going feel free to browse around this site. I’m definitely planning on trying to work harder and update it more and with some prodding could do even better.
