Menina dorme por dois meses sem parar

A estudante Stacey Comerford, de apenas 15 anos, parece 'A Bela Adormecida' na foto. Mas a história da jovem não é um conto de fadas. Ela sofre da síndrome de 'Kleine Levin', uma doença neurológica que faz com que as pessoas fiquem adormecidas por longos intervalos de tempo.

A condição, também conhecida como 'síndrome do sono de beleza', é muita rara, tendo apenas 1.000 casos dela no mundo. A mãe de Stacey diz que os ataques de sono de sua filha podem vir a qualquer momento, e o mais longo durou dois meses inteiros. "Nunca ela me avisou que iria dormir. Um dia encontrei-a dormindo no chão da cozinha", disse ela.

Stacey vive na Inglaterra e sofre demais com seu problema: "Perdi nove provas e o meu aniversário". Nos períodos em que fica dormindo, ela só 'acorda' em transe para fazer suas necessidades básicas. Infelizmente, a síndrome não possui cura ainda.
