      I'm a sixty year old narcoleptic and my second marriage has been over thirty years. My best advice to you is to come completely clean to your husband about your disorder. You will be married a very long time and to have any secrets, including narcolepsy is not a wise choice. Your husband loves you no matter what, he deserves to know. We do our best when we have good support from our family and friends and that means being fully honest with them. Please don't think of yourself as a burden, we do the best we can and try to be as normal as possible. Stress will just add to your symptoms and being deceptive adds alot of stress. Just be truthful!!! He will understand, don't cut him short, he loves you.
