This episode of the true life follows the lives of two young women (Julie and Katie) who but suffer from different forms of narcolepsy, the first to be introduced Julie suffers from Narcolepsy and cataleptic (a condition with which the sufferer loses muscle control for a short period of time). When Julie has her narcoleptic attacks she is still conscious, but she loses all muscle control for about a minute. He condition is triggered by laughter. Katie also suffers from the two same conditions, Katie however relies on a massive amount of stimulants as well as depressants to have a someone of a normal life. They both have had their lives affected very much from their conditions. Julie stopped going to dance and Katie cant hold down a job. The point at which the two women differ is upon their illness narratives. First there is Julie who is a young teen who has recently been affected by the condition. She already knows that there is nothing she can do to go back to be a 100% normal person so shes not in a restitution narrative, rather she is in a quest narrative because she doesn’t want to take a ton of medication she just wants to make her life the best she possibly can with the cards she was dealt. Now Katie on the other hand is in the restitution narrative in that she thinks she will be able to live a normal life so long as she takes the correct medication at the right time. She thinks that after a while her life will be almost normal. Julies sick rights are that she doesn’t want to use the condition as an excuse to stop her doing anything and she tries to do everything she used to do. Katie on the other hand uses sick rights in that she cant get a job because of the condition and she cant wake up in the morning. All and all the two both handle a similar situation in very different ways.
