"The most important thing to a person with narcolepsy is to be around people who can understand and won't berate them," Smith said. "Employers, by and large, they don't want to have a person with narcolepsy on the payroll."
Smith said it is common to come across people diagnosed with narcolepsy whose families still believe they're just lazy. "They'll say, 'Oh, you need vitamins,' or 'You just need more motivation.'"
Smith is just looking for more hypocretin.
