They call her the real "Sleeping Beauty."
A 15-year-old English girl suffers from a rare disease that forces her to sleep for nearly two weeks at a time.
Louisa Ball used to be like any other teenager, until she became stricken with the rare Kleine-Levin Syndrome in October 2008.
"She had a dose of flu that lasted for about a week, but she never really recovered properly from it," her mom, Lottie, 45, told The Daily Mail newspaper.
The family said that Louisa would sleep for 22 hours and her family would get her up to make sure she got some food and went to the bathroom. But then she would soon be off to sleep again, sometimes for as long as 10 days.
There is no treatment for the ailment, though doctors said that she will probably grow out of it.
