Teenager Sleeps For 20 Hours A Day Due To Severe Epilepsy

A Teenage girl has been dubbed the real life sleeping beauty after spending 20 HOURS a day asleep. Emily Rowland suffers from severe epilepsy which causes her to have “staring spells” and fall into a deep sleep for days on end.

It means the teen was forced to give up school two and a half years ago and she can no longer compete in pageants. Emily has been hospitalized hundreds of times and has not slept alone for the past eight years.
