Teen sleeps 64 days straight due to rare 'Sleeping Beauty' disorder11/19/2012
We’re no stranger to the terror that comes when we realize we’ve slept through our alarm. Probably worse: waking to realize you’ve slept through the last 64 days. Meet Nicole Delion, a 17-year-old who once slept from before Thanksgiving until after New Year’s. She also slept through meeting Katy Perry (a gracious Katy Perry re-scheduled) and a lot of her teen years in general (she sleeps 18-19 hours a day). With her disorder, Kleine-Levin syndrome, Nicole only gets up in a confused "sleepwalking mode" to eat before heading back to bed during an episode. For now her family is handling her condition with epilepsy medication, with the hope she’ll eventually grow out of it. [Source]
