USA – They call her ‘Sleeping Beauty,’ but there’s no prince charming that can save Nicole Delien from her arch nemesis, because her villain … is sleep.

She has a rare condition called Kleine-Levin Syndrome, which makes her sleep 18-19 hours a day.  Even with the 17 year old is awake, she is often zombie-like and barely remembers what she does.

Delien has reportedly slept up to 64 days in a row, only peeling herself outa the sack to hit-up the kitchen or commode.  There is no known cure.  Even though the disorder is named after a fairy tale, there’s sadly no apparent happily ever after.
