Asleep for two months
She could be this generation’s sleeping beauty…
A female student in the United Kingdom sleeps up to two months at a time, every seven months, reported The Sun.
Lily Clarke suffers from the rare Kleine-Levin Syndrome.
She slept through exams, Christmas and New Year.
Lily’s mother Adele, 47, said she is missing out on a big chunk of her life.
Liliy's curious condition began in 2007 after the family went for food after an ice-skating session.
She said, "Before the food arrived Lily had fallen asleep in her chair. We couldn't wake her and had to carry her from the restaurant."
Unfortunately, there is no known cure for the syndrome but medics believe it affects young people - so Lily may grow out of it.
Lily is woken just long enough to be fed at her parents' home in Surrey.
