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.

16 Year-Old Emily Rowland of Georgia suffers from severe epilepsy which causes her to have “staring spells” and fall into a deep sleep for days on end. 

The teenager, nicknamed ‘Sleeping Beauty’ by her boyfriend, can fall into deep sleeps that last for days on end, meaning she has to be hospitalized and fed through a drip. 

Emily was forced to give up school – and her passion for competing in beauty pageants – two and a half years ago as a result of her condition, and her mother Brandi is now her full-time carer.
