Everyday when i seem to be somewhere, I fall asleep very quickly and for a short amount of time. Not only that, butregterfdrdt i always have the scariest dream. For example, as i wrote this i fell asleep and i dreamt i was walking down steps and falling. my body jerked trying to catch myself and i knocked over my cat, Babbs(<3), off the bed. What is wrong with me????!!! I must know because me and my old pal, John, are having a slumber party soon and I dont want to frighten him with my spasms because he never wants to come to my house for our weekly slumber parties

sounds like u might have narcolepcy. its a disorder where not matter what youre doing or where you are u can fall asleep it can be a very dangerouse disorder please tell me you dont drive...you need to see a dr ASAP. there are medications for narcolepcy that help your brain keep you awake unless it is time to sleep. i am not an expert but i did work as a pharmacy technition for a while and i did some research on this disorder because i though it was very interesting. So the smptoms you have described seem like the same things i read about. please go see a dr or sleep therepest. please!!
