October 6th, 2012 #Nchat

  • TheRealMikeHunt Q5. Do you drink? If so how does alcohol/beer affect you symptoms? #Nchat -4:54 PM Oct 6th, 2012
  • stridesagainstN @MiaRaven @catthoma Didn't know I had N first time. Don't want her to grow up alone if something happens to DH and I. Morbid, no? Lol #nchat -4:54 PM Oct 6th, 2012
  • catthoma @stridesagainstN Twins run in my family too. My dad is an identical twin, I have twin cousins and my hubby's grandma was a twin. #nchat -4:54 PM Oct 6th, 2012
  • stridesagainstN @MiaRaven @catthoma I do worry about passing my shitastic genes, but there are worse things than #Narcolepsy. #nchat -4:55 PM Oct 6th, 2012
  • TheRealMikeHunt @iamshellybell @catthoma @stridesagainstn same here except for the artist part. #Nchat -4:55 PM Oct 6th, 2012
  • LawrenceChen A5: no, I don't drink. #nchat -4:55 PM Oct 6th, 2012
  • catthoma A5. Great question! Only from the minds of Cat & Mike! Haha! I have used alcohol as a self-medicating tool since college w/o knowing. #nchat -4:55 PM Oct 6th, 2012
  • iamshellybell A5: Yes! I drink wine more than anything. It often acts as a sedative. I get nervous bc it feels like my sleep is deeper than ever.#Nchat -4:55 PM Oct 6th, 2012
  • TheRealMikeHunt @catthoma @MiaRaven thats a really good idea for next time, plus we can all get drunk. #Nchat -4:56 PM Oct 6th, 2012
  • MiaRaven @stridesagainstn I understand, and it's not morbid. It''s probably just me, never really had that want for kids. *shrugs* @catthoma #nchat -4:56 PM Oct 6th, 2012
  • catthoma @stridesagainstN @MiaRaven I have all those shit-tastic genes too. You name it- it runs in the family. #nchat -4:56 PM Oct 6th, 2012
  • TheRealMikeHunt @LawrenceChen Good for you, you'll out live us all. #Nchat -4:56 PM Oct 6th, 2012
  • stridesagainstN A5 No beer since going #glutenfree. No alcohol since #Xyrem. #nchat -4:57 PM Oct 6th, 2012
  • iamshellybell @TheRealMikeHunt @catthoma @stridesagainstn Alcohol is tricky. I survive on caffeine pills.Mixing tht w/ alcohol makes things weird! #Nchat -4:57 PM Oct 6th, 2012
  • convergecollide A5: In moderation. Biggest effect is that I have to vary my meds when drinking. Sometimes I swear it makes me sleep better tho! #nchat -4:57 PM Oct 6th, 2012
  • iamshellybell @stridesagainstN I used to take #Xyrem when I had insurance. How do you like it? #Nchat -4:57 PM Oct 6th, 2012
  • catthoma A5. I know many #narcoleptics do not drink but since I struggle with side effects of medications and the cost- alcohol works for me! #nchat -4:57 PM Oct 6th, 2012
  • TheRealMikeHunt @catthoma who hasn't self medicated once in a while #Nchat -4:58 PM Oct 6th, 2012
  • MiaRaven @therealmikehunt I'm usually wide awake at 1AM so that sounds good to me...lol Save the alcohol, it makes me zzzzzz @catthoma #nchat -4:58 PM Oct 6th, 2012
  • catthoma @stridesagainstN I make a rule- if I drink, no #xyrem. If I have no more #xyrem (like now) then 2-3 beers works about the same. #nchat -4:58 PM Oct 6th, 2012
  • stridesagainstN @MiaRaven I know lots who've chosen to go the child free route. It's important to be happy is the bottom line. #nchat -4:59 PM Oct 6th, 2012
  • TheRealMikeHunt @stridesagainstN When I was on #Xyrem drinks never seem to affect it or me. #Nchat -4:59 PM Oct 6th, 2012
  • TheRealMikeHunt @iamshellybell @catthoma @stridesagainstn Yeah don't do that #Nchat -4:59 PM Oct 6th, 2012
  • MiaRaven Ok, I must have missed the questions in #nchat...still waking up & trying to catch up, sorry y'all. -4:59 PM Oct 6th, 2012
  • catthoma A5. Many people think that adding alcohol into the mix as a #narcoleptic is dangerous. But I never take meds on it. #nchat -5:00 PM Oct 6th, 2012
  • convergecollide @catthoma @stridesagainstn I'm very strict about not taking Xyrem if I've had any alcohol. I skip Xyrem probably 1-2 nights/week. #nchat -5:00 PM Oct 6th, 2012
  • iamshellybell If I drink I absolutely shouldn't drive Narcolepsy and Alcohol are a dangerous combo. I like to drink tho. it sucks! #Nchat -5:00 PM Oct 6th, 2012
  • TheRealMikeHunt @convergecollide The more I drink the longer I stay up. And I def sleep better #Nchat -5:00 PM Oct 6th, 2012
  • MiaRaven For those wondering, I'm in a Twitter chat for #narcolepsy called #nchat. You might wanna filter me for a bit. Sorry, peeps. -5:00 PM Oct 6th, 2012
  • catthoma @TheRealMikeHunt by once in awhile you mean the last 11 years? #nchat -5:00 PM Oct 6th, 2012
  • TheRealMikeHunt @iamshellybell @stridesagainstN Not a fan #Nchat -5:01 PM Oct 6th, 2012
  • stridesagainstN @iamshellybell It's ok. I'm battling side-effects still, but I'm tons more productive during the day. #Xyrem #nchat -5:01 PM Oct 6th, 2012
  • TheRealMikeHunt @MiaRaven @catthoma Sounds good to me #Nchat -5:01 PM Oct 6th, 2012
  • iamshellybell @TheRealMikeHunt @stridesagainstn I actually like my dreams! so I am not a fan of #Xyrem it did help my weight tho. #Nchat -5:01 PM Oct 6th, 2012
  • catthoma @convergecollide @stridesagainstn Exactly. Me too. #xyrem doesn't work every night for me either- so I just take nights off. #nchat -5:02 PM Oct 6th, 2012
  • TheRealMikeHunt @MiaRaven what questions do you need? #Nchat -5:02 PM Oct 6th, 2012
  • MiaRaven I have not been on any of the meds I'm supposed to take for 7 yrs due to not being insurable until now (Thanks, Obama!), also broke. #nchat -5:02 PM Oct 6th, 2012
  • iamshellybell then again it may have been all of the management w/eating at a certain time then taking the meds that helped my weight #Nchat -5:03 PM Oct 6th, 2012
  • catthoma @stridesagainstN @iamshellybell Helps at night, but side effects are terrible. Doesn't help me the next day. I feel hung over. #nchat -5:03 PM Oct 6th, 2012
  • TheRealMikeHunt @catthoma Yes! #Nchat -5:03 PM Oct 6th, 2012
  • LawrenceChen Yeah, been fighting the side effects....though the weight loss hasn't been all that bad, except that now I need to buy new clothes #nchat -5:04 PM Oct 6th, 2012
  • catthoma Anyone else get the munchies when they take #xyrem? I catch myself eating after I've taken it which I know I shouldn't... #nchat -5:04 PM Oct 6th, 2012
  • catthoma Ok ladies and germs! Those are all the Q's we had for this month! If you have suggestions for next time- send them over! #nchat -5:04 PM Oct 6th, 2012
