Real Life Sleeping Beauty
This is a real life Sleeping Beauty who falls asleep for a week at a time because of a rare disorder. The pretty nursing student has Kleine-Levin Syndrome – more commonly known as Sleeping Beauty Syndrome – but her life is no fairytale. Without warning Poppy, 24, from Southampton, can go into a dream-like state before falling asleep and never knows when she will wake up again. Her condition affects fewer than 1,000 sufferers worldwide.
