MTV seeking “True Life” subjects

If the following ad interest you please reply directly to that project.

NN in no way endorses these projects and receives no compensation, this is presented for informational purposes only.


Do you suffer from narcolepsy with cataplexy? Does the chronic sleep disorder prevent you from living a normal life? Do you fall asleep at inappropriate times? Does the disorder affect your muscle control, causing you to freeze or collapse at any given moment?

Do your teachers think you’re lazy because you fall asleep in class? Have you lost jobs due to your inability to stay awake? Is your social life suffering because people don’t know how to react to your disorder? Have you recently been diagnosed and are struggling to figure out how to live with the disorder? Are you about to begin treatment and hope that narcolepsy will no longer control your life? Or have you lived with narcolepsy so long that you’ve learned ways to adapt?

If your narcolepsy is causing major problems in your everyday life and you appear between the ages of 16 and 26, email us at [email protected] and tell us your story. Be sure to include your name, location, phone number and a recent photo of yourself. Please note: at this time, we are specifically seeking people with narcolepsy AND cataplexy. Thanks!
