        A 17-year-old girl is suffering from an unusual disorder that sends her to sleep for weeks at a time.

        "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. Doctors have diagnosed her with Kleine-Levin Syndrome, an incurable autoimmune disorder."

        I can't imagine having something so debilitating.

        Wow, sometimes when my alarm goes off for work I wish I could just sleep forever. But really, what a shame to sleep away so much of your life, and for such a young girl.

        her doctor should give her some steroids.  if i forget to take mine, i don't wake up for a couple of days.  its like i'm out of gas. 

        i cannot imagine sleeping for half a year tho, but her body must need the sleep.  thats how i feel sometimes.  i used to only sleep about 4-5 hours a night my whole life, now that about all i am awake.  its messed up.  maybe if i didn't have people living with me, making me get up, i probably would stay longer too.
