Hi! I’m Jenn, and I overshare. Nice to meet you!

Sleeping while Alive is a space for me to share my experiences with mental illness and narcolepsy, because it feels better to share and I hope to hear from those in similar situations.

If you’re taking the time to read this, then maybe I should set some expectations for you about the rest of the blog.

  1. There’s a lot of unsexy stuff here, unless you get off on nihilism. No judgement if you do.
  2. Despite the nihilism, I want readers to know that It Gets Better. Am I talking about my writing, or life in general? WHO KNOWS.
  3. My views are my own. I welcome feedback, comments, concerns, and what-have-you, as long as you’re not a jerk. It’s okay to hate the world, but don’t be a jerk to other people. These can actually be mutually exclusive. I am living proof.
