Click here to go to our Facebook event for Melbourne Meeting people online that you can relate to can be a great experience but meeting people face to face can have a profound effect on you. It did for me. I met someone with Idiopathic Hypersomnia and her mum in 2012. Jessie is an intelligent and determined young lady but there was a look in her eye that I could relate to. In her I could see myself 20 years earlier. My road, which is the road that many people over 40 have traveled, wasn't easy. Diagnosis came after many years searching for answers, many doctors appointments where I was met with skepticism and doubt. People were judgmental and even I was hard on myself. After meeting Jessie I went home and decided that something needed to be done so that the road younger people traveled wasn't so bumpy and so that everyone with Idiopathic Hypersomnia could feel less isolated, and more represented. That was the start of Hypersomnolence Australia and the international Idiopathic Hypersomnia Awareness Week. I've since met both Jessie's mum and dad. I know it helped Jessie and her parents to meet someone else with Idiopathic Hypersomnia. So come along and bring your family and friends! There will be meet up's in other states if the interest is there. If we don't have the numbers we may consider joint meet ups with Sleep Disorders Australia. We will keep you posted! Michelle
