If you want to find out what it is like to have narcolepsy, you must read Wide Awake and Dreaming. Julie s memoir is so well written with such interesting and entertaining detail, honesty and openness. Julie describes her story so clearly as her story and yet, many people will recognize their own story in here. A wonderful recommended must read for everyone! Julie is a natural story teller. --Eveline Honig, M.D., M.P.H. Executive Director, Narcolepsy Network, Inc.
Julie shares her story brilliantly. She relates the details in such a way, that it is an easy read with snippets of humor added. This, I believe, makes her an ideal spokesperson for narcolepsy. Julie is all about helping others to empower themselves; to make their journey into the unknown a little less scary than it was for her. She uses her own life s experiences to teach us how to find humor, and hope, in our own health circumstances. Whether you have narcolepsy, or another condition, this is a must read book. --Michelle King Robson, Founder and Chairperson, EmpowHER
