Dr Oz: Real-Life Sleeping Beauty
Nicole is 20-years-old and known as the real life Sleeping Beauty. She has a disorder that causes her to fall into “sleeps” that last as long as 64 days. Nicole and her mom opened up their home to show Dr Oz just how real Nicole’s sleep disorder is.
Nicole’s mom remembers her daughter’s longest sleep episode that occurred when Nicole was just 13-years-old. She had fallen asleep on the bed, but when her mom tried to wake her up, she wouldn’t stir. All Nicole remembers is falling asleep right before her 14th birthday, around Thanksgiving, and waking up in January. She had stayed asleep for 64 days.
