Hello, I’m Nick Lynch a.k.a “The Narcoleptic Narcissist.” I know that probably seems slightly egotistical, but I only started that to deal with the idea of being sick. I’m 27 years old, married with three kids (my two dogs and a cat), and I live in New Bern, NC. I’ve had a variety of experiences in my life, in just a short time, too.
I’ve been a professional wrestler, an actor and journalist in college, a manager of a fast food restaurant, and a U.S Marine. I’m still a Marine actually, but not for too long due to my narcolepsy. I thought my experiences in life thus far were wild, but now I’ve opened an entirely new can of worms that has endless possibilities!
Now I find myself working on a non-profit organization to aid in narcolepsy awareness and helping those who need it get the medication they deserve. I have also rekindled my love of writing through blogging, my friends and acquaintances have convinced me that I should write a book. That’s an adventure in itself!
I don’t care for labels, if you get to know me, you’ll better understand why. But they are a great way for people to understand who you are, where you’ve been, and what you’ve accomplished. A necessary evil in my eyes.
I don’t want fame from my work, I just want to invoke change. If that change causes my name to be more well known, so be it, it’s just another necessary evil. Obviously, I want you to read my book (when I write one) and my blogs but they are just my way of making sure my voice is heard. If you can’t hear me or you don’t know that I exist, how are you going to know what my cause is and how I want to introduce change?
As long as a change of some sort occurs, big or small, I will be satisfied. Regardless of whether or not that change is associated with me.
