Meet Woman Who Sleeps For 22 Hours A Day, Suffering From “Sleeping Beauty Syndrome”

A rare condition means a woman sleeps for up to 22 HOURS a day – and still feels tired.

Over the course of the year, there are 8,670 hours – and Heather Reed snoozes for around 8,030 of them.

“It certainly has an impact on my life,” said Heather, 37, speaking during a precious conscious hour.

“I feel like a ghost in my own life.”

Heather, from Nova Scotia, Canada, has been battling two debilitating conditions – myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME) and Kleine-Levin Syndrome (KLS), also known as Sleeping Beauty syndrome – for more than seven years.

Shockingly, her illnesses, which are not believed to be related, developed virtually overnight.

Before then, she says: “Before I was sick, I was a conservation biologist working for Parks Canada.

I owned my own home and my own car and I was a graduate student. I lived a really active, very mentally and physically engaging life.
