17-year-old girl slept for 64 days

20 posts in this topic

A Pennsylvania teenager slept for 64 days from Thanksgiving into January -- her longest sleeping episode yet.

Nicole Delien, 17, struggles with a rare sleep disorder called Kleine-Levine, or ‘Sleeping Beauty Syndrome’.

During her sleep spells she will wake up in a confused state for small periods of time to eat and go to the bathroom and then fall back to sleep.

Sleeping is somewhat in a way similar to hibernation. Everything in the body slows down, so I can imagine that's probably how she survived. But 64 days? That's actually pretty amazing. I wonder if she actually lucid dream a lot or not throughout those 64 days and all the other times she sleep.

That would be strange and unsettling thing to happen, you would miss out on so much. Looking forward to thanksgiving and waking up on valentines day.

Too bad, she's a pretty girl, I guess the syndrome name is correct.

Apparently she woke up for short periods of time to eat, before going back to sleep.

But she got to meet Katy Perry.

If I was her father, I'd make everything look post apocalyptic.

When she wakes up I'd urgently say "Darling, the world has changed since you last awoke. It's very dark outside".

I'm a cruel person aren't I?

Not really, I was thinking, pump her full of stimulants and see what happens? :P

I saw a documentary on this disorder, another young woman; apparently it's an issue with the pituitary or something but it goers away as they get older.

I'm passed my teen years and there are days when I think I could sleep maybe a week straight.. thank goodness for coffee!
