A young lady who sleeps up to 64 days on end has portrayed how low her condition makes her feel.
Nicole, 20, experiences a condition where she nods off and can’t wake up, and how one scene saw her asleep for 64 days in a row.
Nicole, who has Kleine-Levin Syndrome (KLS) requires 24-hour care, and initially had a sleeping episode at 6 years old.
At the time, her hovering mother expected that Nicole was falling sick with influenza as she was dozing up to 18 hours a day.
As a youthful kid, not understanding what had happened, a disorientated Nicole would not have the capacity to remember her mum or relatives.
Her longest episode happened before her 14 birthday at Thanksgiving and all she recalls is awakening in January the next year.
It took 25 months to get a finding for her ‘sleeping spells’, which typically begin with Nicole getting a headache and feeling torpid.
Her mum clarified that the episodes can last from anyplace between 22 to 64 days in a row. When she now stirs from her sleep, Nicole is uninformed with reference to the amount of time has passed by.
