Real life Sleeping Beauty a Fairy Tale dream or a horrid nightmare? A real life Sleeping Beauty exists, and Louisa Ball knows it all too well.Â This real life Sleeping Beauty can sleep through entire weeks of class, entire birthday parties, camping trips, and other memorable life moments.
The name of the ailment that is affecting Louisa Ball is Kleine-Levin syndrome. It’s not a very common ailment and chances are Louisa will grow out of the illness – or at least she hopes.
Can you imagine being a realÂ life Sleeping Beauty, unable to know when you will fall asleep, only to wake up weeks later? Nothing could be scarier.Â Her parents have to shove food down her throat and get her to use the bathroom, only for her to fall asleep again!
I’m all for a good nap every now and again.Â In fact, just yesterday I took myself a couple hour snooze in the middle of the afternoon.Â However, it’s not something I would want to do every day, and sleeping is definitely not something I would want to do for weeks at a time.
The longest that Louisa Ball, the Real Life sleeping beauty, has ever slept is for 13 days.
