Georgia Green from Adelaide suffers from a rare disease - she can sleep without waking up for several weeks in a row. Such a long and incurable condition, which can occur at any time, is called Kleine-Levin syndrome.

People with this disease usually suffer from episodes of prolonged sleep, which can last up to several days, which makes it difficult for them to live a normal life.

“Sometimes I can sleep for 10 days in a row, and all this time I just fall out of real life,” says Georgia. “When another episode arrives, I feel like a fog in my head, and then I just turn off.”

The condition can be replaced by periods of insomnia and the desire to eat unhealthy foods, but the biggest problem is that the patient is not able to engage in daily activities, such as attending school or just go somewhere else.

For its life, Georgia has already experienced 35 long-lasting sleep episodes, which add up to almost a year.

“For the first two years, such episodes happened to me once a month,” says Georgia. “This has been happening less often lately, but nothing can be done to completely get rid of this disease.”

Despite the fact that while this syndrome does not respond to any treatment, there is light at the end of the tunnel - as a rule, the attacks disappear by the age of 30 years.

Georgia is only 19 years old, and she will have to come to terms with the disease and wait a few more years.
