This past year he was diagnosed with narcolepsy type 1.
In this episode, Mike shares how a health crisis led to multiple diagnoses, including narcolepsy type 1. He discusses how he is adapting to a new lifestyle and despite his multiple comorbid conditions, he is able to continue to do fulfilling work. Mike also gives insight on how his family is adapting to the changes as well.
Mike has a great book coming out on April 28th, You’re a Miracle (and a Pain in the Ass), which he and Claire dive into. Mike sees his position in the public eye as an opportunity to be “open, honest and un-self-conscious” about his disabilities.
