Hmmmmm na wa what kind of disease is this one, To sleep for 22hrs is no joke .
Beth Goodier 22, from Stockport, Cheshire, is one of more than 100 young people in Britain diagnosed with Kleine-Levin syndrome (KLS) - known as Sleeping Beauty syndrome.
In the run-up to her 17th birthday in November five years ago, Beth fell asleep ,and didn't wake up properly for six months.
For 22 hours a day, she kept sleeping, only waking in a dream-like trance to take a little food and drink and go to the toilet. Little is known about what triggers the sleep disorder and even less about how to cure it. At the moment, Beth is two-and-a half months into another deep sleep episode.
Nothing - not drugs, loud noises, pleading or cajoling - will wake her.
Over the past five years, Beth's mother, Janine, calculates that her daughter has been asleep 75 per cent of the time.
