In the fairy tale, Sleeping Beauty is a princess sent into a 100-year slumber by an evil witch. A kiss from a handsome prince breaks the spell, and they live happily ever after.

The present-day "Sleeping Beauty," as the media calls her, is a 17-year-old woman in Worthing, England, named Louisa Ball. Instead of the fairy tale's poisoned splinter, her curse began with flu-like symptoms two years ago.

"Bad cold, temperature ... and from then on that's when I started to sleep," she said.

She wouldn't stop for 10 to 14 days.

Her parents would rouse her for bathroom breaks and ravenous feedings.

I slept for 23 hours once, it was really confusing when I woke up I can't imagine losing weeks at a time - couldn't anyone wake her?

"I warn you, whoever you are, oh you who wish to probe the arcanes of nature, if you do not find within yourself that which you seek, neither shall you find it outside.
If you ignore the excellencies of your own house, how do you intend to find other excellencies?
In you is hidden the treasure of treasures, Oh man, know thyself and you shall know the Universe and the Gods."

That's a strange disease.  It's good to know that the treatments are working.  I hope she
grows out of it.  It would be a pity if she had to waste her life on account of this disease.
