An Arizona lady who has never left the U.S. went to bed one night and woke up speaking as yet she’s from the U.K.
Michelle Myers, of the Grand Canyon State, was diagnosed with foreign accent syndrome (FAS).
Yes, it’s a thing.
“Everybody only sees or hears Mary Poppins,” Myers, a former Texas beauty black with 7 kids, told KNXV-TV.

Over the past 7 years, Myers has oral in several accents. First Irish, then Australian. Each time, the accent lasted about a week.
But her British accent is still going clever given 2015, when she went to nap with a blinding and immobilizing headache and awakened a changed woman.
“They send in the psychiatrist at the hospital and make certain you’re not a loon,” Myers said.
FAS is a singular condition — one that’s influenced fewer than 100 people in the last century. It is customarily related to a stroke or neurological mishap or impairment. Other causes have also been reported including mixed sclerosis.

In some cases, such as a born-and-bred Texas lady who woke up articulate like a Brit after jaw surgery, no transparent means has been identified.
Myers also suffers from a condition famous as Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, which could be related with her transitory accents. The syndrome is a organisation of disorders that impact junction tissues ancillary the skin, bones, blood vessels and many other viscera and tissues.
“Some people consider it’s physiological; others consider it’s psychological,” pronounced Myers. “People like me — we don’t caring which one it is. We just really wish to be taken seriously and if it is something that’s going to harm me, help me.”
