Hello! My name is Bonk/Tobias and I am new to this platform!
Let me introduce myself. I am 17 years old and I use they/he (transmasc nonbinary butch lesbian here). I am a junior in high school. I want to become an epidemiologist! I also am pagan and practice witchcraft. I love being in band, choir, and theatre. I am even one of the alto section leaders in my choir and I pride myself on that fact. I am also my school's GSA president
The condition I came here to seek support with is narcolepsy (specifically type two). I have started having symptoms shortly after getting COVID-19 my freshman year, and it exponentially worsened after marching band season my sophomore year. Initially, I thought it was chronic fatigue since that was being reported as an aftermath condition with COVID. However, I soon started having sleep attacks and I was seriously struggling. My PCP was the one who initially mentioned narcolepsy, and my junior year we started the process. After testing, it was pretty clear I was narcoleptic. It's hard for me to admit I am disabled, but I want to use the confusion and anxiety I have around my diagnosis to bring awareness to others.
I got my diagnosis of type two narcolepsy less than a month ago, and I still have a lot to learn. I started 100g modafinil three days ago and I have found I can already feel a lot better. I'm excited to meet others whom interests we have in common here!
Talking about interests, here are some of mine: witchcraft/paganism, pokemon, gaming, music, any kind of arts, LGBTQ+, women's, disability, and other rights activism, chucky/child's play, alternative fashion, etc
I am thrilled to talk to you all! ♡

Hi. I'm Christy. I am a Mom and Teacher. This is my 20th year teaching. It would have been my 24th year, but I had to take a four year hiatus. Got divorced and amazingly no more seizures. Mine are brought on by stress. Glad to have answers and control.
