Schoolgirl Stacey Comerford looks like Sleeping Beauty as her mum gently strokes her hand.
And that’s just what she is as she suffers from Kleine Levin syndrome which means she can sleep for MONTHS at a time.
The condition, also known as Sleeping Beauty syndrome, is so rare there are only around 1,000 sufferers in the world.
Yet Stacey, 15, of Telford, Shrops, is not the only British teenager hit by it as Mitchell Baldwin, 14, of Arbourthorne, Sheffield, can sleep for 22 hours a day, only waking to eat in a trance-like state.
Mitchell, who has missed exams and slept through holidays, said: It’s frustrating. Life is passing me by.”
