Senior Aaron Jones has participated in football and wrestling throughout his high school career, but his participation became a challenge when he was diagnosed with narcolepsy, reports the Morris Sun-Tribune.
“I experience almost entirely Cataplexy-associated episodes rather than the daytime sleepiness that is more common,” Jones said. “That is why it is difficult to participate in sports. Overwhelming emotion or strenuous physical activity can cause me to have an episode.”
For Jones, the worst part of his disorder is not knowing what might happen during an episode.
