I read this because I have a loved one -- my boyfriend -- suffering from narcolepsy. I never expected that I would be unable to put it down the whole time. It gave me so much insight as to the struggles my loved one is experiencing, and just educated me overall about this very misunderstood illness. I feel like I can understand my boyfriend much better now, especially about the mental fog and the confusion when separating dreams and real life. Not to mention that Julie's story is very engaging in and of itself! She's an amazing woman. This is definitely a must read for anyone who has narcolepsy or a family or friend with narcolepsy.

This is Julie's well-articulated personal account of living with narcolepsy/cataplexy. I highly recommend Wide Awake and Dreaming to those who, like me, have a loved one living and coping with this most frustrating illness.
