  • catthoma Q3. Do you have accommodations in place at school or work to help you get through the day? What are they? Were they hard to get? #nchat -4:29 PM Dec 1st, 2012
  • stridesagainstN @ColleenESolomon Speed doesn't matter, it's getting out there and giving it a go that counts! #Nchat -4:30 PM Dec 1st, 2012
  • TheRealMikeHunt A2a. No job + No sleep schedule + massive depressing = sleeping for 24 hrs and not knowing why #Nchat -4:30 PM Dec 1st, 2012
  • LawrenceChen @catthoma Neuro had me do a bunch of tests last month and said he should be able to tell me why when I see him again on the 6th. #nchat -4:30 PM Dec 1st, 2012
  • stridesagainstN A2a. Prior to practicing good #sleephygiene, I was sleeping 14-16 hours a day and still tired. Now I'm at 9-10 and am more awake. #Nchat -4:31 PM Dec 1st, 2012
  • ColleenESolomon Yes I am excited #Nchat -4:31 PM Dec 1st, 2012
  • catthoma @TheRealMikeHunt Amen to that. Sounds like me when I was unemployed... Thought it was just being depressed and feeling worthless. #nchat -4:31 PM Dec 1st, 2012
  • TheRealMikeHunt @stridesagainstN I found sleeping 9-10 hrs a day is almost perfect #Nchat -4:32 PM Dec 1st, 2012
  • catthoma @LawrenceChen Will u let me know what u find out? I'm very curious. I've had 5 neuros tell me I have it but none could find a source #nchat -4:32 PM Dec 1st, 2012
  • sarahkbeau A3: I had an IPP in High School, worked wonders for exams + naps. College is less helpful, teachers know just no accommodation. #Nchat -4:33 PM Dec 1st, 2012
  • LawrenceChen A3: I have an understanding that translates to accommodations, either given or offered and accepted. By keeping boss in the loop... #nchat -4:33 PM Dec 1st, 2012
  • Rrrapture @catthoma @stridesagainstN I'm happy to answer any questions about the meetup. Before I started this, I'd never met another PWN #Nchat -4:33 PM Dec 1st, 2012
  • stridesagainstN A3. I have #accommodations to take a nap during work hours. Not on call overnight anymore. A letter from my doc helped my case. #Nchat -4:33 PM Dec 1st, 2012
  • ColleenESolomon I have always been sleepy, but it got significantly worse this past year. Really working on a schedule/meds #Nchat -4:33 PM Dec 1st, 2012
  • TheRealMikeHunt @catthoma Yep I had no idea I had a disease that was completely shutting down my body. #Nchat -4:33 PM Dec 1st, 2012
  • catthoma @sarahkbeau That's horrible! #nchat -4:34 PM Dec 1st, 2012
  • stridesagainstN A3. I do not ask for #accommodations at school. I'm doing 8 week classes so I just power through. It's really difficult. #Nchat -4:34 PM Dec 1st, 2012
  • TheRealMikeHunt A3. I work from home and I have know my boss for all my life and she understands that I don't have meds and no ins... #Nchat -4:34 PM Dec 1st, 2012
  • catthoma A3. Does free coffee all day count? I was told I knew I had it when I started so I can't retro-actively ask for help #nchat -4:35 PM Dec 1st, 2012
  • LawrenceChen Though I heard of people getting terminated while struggling with health issues, but the bosses didn't know they were having problems #nchat -4:35 PM Dec 1st, 2012
  • sarahkbeau @catthoma not the end of the world, lol I know what I get myself into with each class I take. Also helps to enjoy what you study! #Nchat -4:36 PM Dec 1st, 2012
  • TheRealMikeHunt A3. She is really awesome. Most days I don't need a nap, I just really want one. And she knows I will always hit my goals eventually. #Nchat -4:36 PM Dec 1st, 2012
  • catthoma A3. For some reason school doesn't seem to be an issue these days- I think it's due to online classes. #nchat -4:36 PM Dec 1st, 2012
  • TheRealMikeHunt @Rrrapture @catthoma @stridesagainstN we have a nice little community here and its growing all the time #Nchat -4:37 PM Dec 1st, 2012
  • catthoma @sarahkbeau Yes it very much does! I'm a college counselor by trade- so I have that conversation often with my students! #nchat -4:37 PM Dec 1st, 2012
