Sleepy American

Patient Leader

My name is Rachel, also known as Sleepy American. Having Narcolepsy w/ Cataplexy and Fibromyalgia, I advocate for all persons with Invisible Disabilities. It's most important to have a fellow veteran like myself, to guide and support the newly diagnosed person. Over a decade of youtube Awareness, Educational, Advocacy, and Personal Accounts on YouTube and Facebook, I strive to bring 'America Forgotten' (Persons with invisible disabilities) to light. Creator of Sleepy American Heroes: Justice League for Persons with Invisible Disabilities I hope to not only spread awareness about many different disabilities, but also leave each person feeling like a true SuperHero.On Anti-bullying currently.
