Emily Kreuziger is a mom, a professional snowmobiler and a person with narcolepsy.

In this episode, Emily shares her long diagnosis process. After being diagnosed and learning more about narcolepsy, she realized her first symptoms started 10 years prior to her actual diagnosis. She also shares how she went from originally being diagnosed with IH, then narcolepsy type 1 to now her proper diagnosis of narcolepsy type 2.

As a new mom, Emily generously shares her experience of becoming pregnant, her decision to go off meds, the delivery and now, what it’s like to be back on medication with a baby.

Emily also is a professional snowmobiler. It’s a family affair, which is awesome, but Emily goes into detail on how she manages her narcolepsy symptoms and energy as she trains and races on a snowmobile.
