Girl Slept For 64 Days: Disorder Turns Teen Into Real-Life 'Sleeping Beauty'

Posted: Updated:

EXAMINER.COM - A girl who slept for 64 days is being compared to a real-life sleeping beauty after appearing on "The Jeff Probst Show" to discuss a condition known as Kleine–Levin syndrome, KLS, or Sleeping Beauty syndrome, which causes her to sleep excessively. During her longest sleeping episode, 17-year-old Nicole Delien slept nearly non-stop from Thanksgiving until the following year and missed all the holiday festivities.

The girl who slept for 64 days has two younger siblings, a brother and a sister. Fortunately, they do not suffer from the condition.

The teen said she missed a family vacation to Disney World due to her condition and has slept through birthdays and Christmas. During her sleeping spells, she wakes up to eat and use the bathroom. However, she remains in a sleep-like state even when briefly awake. click here to read more
