An Arizona mom says that two years ago, she had a headache, laid down and woke up with a British accent.
Myers has since been diagnosed with Foreign Accent Syndrome, an incredibly rare disorder that has only been documented around 60 times in history.
According tothe Washington Post, the condition was first recorded in 1907 when French neurologist Pierre Marie observed a man in Paris speaking in a local German dialect after suffering a stroke. She says that often people don't believe she isn't British nor do they realize there isn't actually that much amusing about the situation, at least not for Myers, who says she wants her condition to be taken very seriously.
Myers says she has Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, which causes easy bruising and painful joints.
Initially, Michelle Myers began waking up with Irish and Australian accents, but those began to dissipate after a few weeks.
According to experts, she's not insane and not faking it. The British accent is the latest in her weird string of voice changes after she fell asleep with a headache, and she's understandably frustrated.
Because of a rare genetic disease, a woman woke up with different accents three times already.
Michelle Myers' story follows a case in 2016 when a Californian woman developed a Scottish accent through foreign accent syndrome. She felt like a different person and it took her some time to define her identity. "I don't know. I just feel that people don't really understand how it feels to have your voice changed", Myers said in an interview.
The former beauty queen has the love and support of her seven children even if there are people who are questioning the truthfulness of her claims. According to doctors, this condition, although extremely rare, is indeed real. While it may seem like some kind of joke or invention for publicity, Myers swears that the condition she suffers from is very serious.
"I'm sad", she said of recalling how she used to speak. "The person I am now has been through so much compared to this person".
"Some people think it's physiological; others think it's psychological", she told the station.
Myers told KNXV that she is trying to maintain a positive attitude and just wants to be taken seriously since she is aware of how her condition sounds to others. "The person that I am now have been through a lot".
