Of course you do all that because you are "the mom" and you would do anything to help your children succeed in life, to have the best quality of life possible and if that means sacrificing for them you will do it without giving it a second thought. Having this diagnosis means you have answers and a reason for all the struggles. It means you now can begin to understand a lot of the aspects of this diagnosis and the side effects, the characteristics that are part of the N/C package and not just a personality thing...and with understanding comes acceptance and change, possible solutions and answers but most of all awareness and continued unconditional love! Now that you know ....you can move forward together.
You now realize in retrospect that this problem likely started in junior high and that she was always difficult to wake up but you never thought it was a bigger problem than her being a sleepy teenager who's was also just a nightowl like you! You will have thoughts about what caused your child to develop this condition, is it something you did or could have prevented, was it a vaccine you made your daughter get, foods you ate or some other environmental cause, genes you passed down, either way guilt won't help or make the N go away but perhaps someday scientists will find some answers that may help prevent others from going through this. You will ask God why but understand that He knows but we may not ever understand why some people get sick and some don't.
You will continue to support Lindsey any way you can because that's what you do, to the best of your ability, you'll be there when she needs advice or a ride to the sleep clinic, you will raise awareness for this cause because it is not well known and because PWN's look "normal" people don't recognize it as a disability or the serious condition that it is. You will help her advocate so that she succeeds in all she does because you know she is strong and won't let this keep her down. She will find a career that she loves and excels at and can use her vast talents to their fullest and you will continue to pray to that end. Narcolepsy is not who she is it is just what she has!
