Odd things, daily.
Kleine-Levin Syndrome is an extremely rare neurological disorder, only affecting around 1,000 people worldwide. It causes people to sleep for excessive periods of time, earning the nickname “Sleeping Beauty Syndrome”.
17-year-old Pennsylvanian girl Nicole Delien, who suffers from “Sleeping Beauty Syndrome”, sleeps around 18 or 19 hours a day, and occasionally sleeps for 32 to 64 straight days in a row.
Delien once even slept through her Christmas holidays, awaking in January to open her presents.
Her mother, Vicki Delien, explained:
“She’s never really adjusted to it. She’s 17 now and it really upsets her. She’s missed out on a lot.”
On the rare occasions Nicole does wake up, she is usually in a sleepwalking state and doesn’t remember much about her waking hours.
