"It's so embarrassing," she said, according to The Mirror. "I was out shopping once and I saw someone that looked alright, and my legs just went and I had to cling onto my cousin for support. If I see someone attractive, my legs just go so I try not to put myself in situations where that could happen, or I try to keep my eyes down for my own safety."
Kirsty can suffer anywhere from five to 50 cataplexy attacks a day.
"It's like a short circuit from the brain to the muscle is interrupted and I just lose control over my legs," she explained. "I can have an attack at the top of a flight of stairs if they're steep because I don't like heights."
"I haven't had an attraction that strong recently that it would trigger an attack which on one hand is brilliant but also a bit sad because I'd like to feel that attracted to someone."
