According to Fox News, a woman, who is suffering with a sleep disorder, claimed she purchased a full-sized basketball court. Kelly Snipes claimed that the disorder has driven her into debt.
She also claims that doctors told her that her condition was from stress or from a lack of sleep. And a costly shopping habit for the woman.
“When I was 20 weeks pregnant, I took an overdose in my sleep,” Snipes, whose symptoms worsened following the birth of her first son, told SWNS. “Because I am diabetic I have to take medicine for it and I overdosed on metformin. I was having a dream that I was speaking to the doctors and I kept saying that I didn’t want to take the medicine anymore — but when I woke up, I had taken all the tablets. Luckily everything was OK, but I was so worried that social services would get called.”
She claims that the condition began has a child, then got worse as she got older. She claims that she never knew what she would do when she was sleepwalking.
Snipes also claims that her condition has also made her “more exhausted.” She also said she wasn’t sure how her condition could hurt her husband or children.
“I didn’t feel like I could be a mom or a wife,” she told SWNS.
After having failed attempts to doctors, she wrote a letter to two consultants. That led these two individuals to take over her case.
She said she was diagnosed with diagnosed with obstructive sleep apnea and parasomnia. Obstructive sleep apnea is a condition that causes people to stop and start breathing while they are asleep.
Parasomnia is a condition, where abnormal things that can happen to people, while they are sleeping, according to the National Sleep Foundation.
She claims that getting help with her sleep apnea, her parasomnia condition has stopped.
“When I had the CPAP machine, I felt rested and re-energized for the first time in ages,” Snipes, who once purchased a full-sized basketball court in her sleep, told SWNS. “It really has given me my life back.”
