Arizona woman wakes up with British accent

She's gone from an American English accent to speaking with an Irish, Australian and even a British accent, local USA media reports. In 1941, a Norwegian woman called Astrid was hit with a piece of shrapnel, which caused her to speak with an accent her neighbors mistook for French or German.

Myers, who said she also suffers from Ehlers-Danlos, a condition that makes skin elastic and joints flexible to the point of dislocation, is now seeking treatment for her rare condition, with the hope of being cured.

She's not insane, she just suffers from a rare condition.

Once doctors ruled out the possibility that Myers was faking or mentally ill, she was diagnosed with the extremely rare condition Foreign Accent Syndrome.

"Some people think it's physiological; others think it's psychological", Myers told a local ABC affiliate.

Myers also suffers from Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, which causes her bruising and painful joints.

Asma Jehangir, Leading Pakistani Rights Activist, Dies at 66
The firebrand human rights activist graduated from Kinnaird College and later pursued an LLB from Punjab University. The cause of her death has not been confirmed yet, but according to media reports, it was due to cardiac arrest.

The mother of seven said she is coming to terms with the disorder and has accepted she will sound like this for the rest of her life.

Two years ago she went down with a crippling headache and woke up with a Cockney accent she's had ever since. And though rare, cases of the speech disorder have since been documented around the world, according to the Center for Communication Disorders at the University of Texas at Dallas. It is usually linked to a stroke or neurological trauma or impairment.

The first time, she had an Irish accent and the second time an Australian accent. The syndrome is a group of disorders that affect connective tissues supporting the skin, bones, blood vessels and many other organs and tissues. "The person I am now has been through so much compared to this person", she said.

She continued: "Sometimes, people can be quite hostile". It cleared itself up shortly thereafter, but a subsequent stroke sent her into a spiral of different accents that each last just weeks. "Rare diseases are very emotional".

Michelle Meyers has lived in the United States all her life, and for most of it, she sounded the part.

And one particular person seems to come to mind when she speaks. "And if I say unusual things like 'I'm just going to the loo, ' it's really weird, as I sound just like a Brit". She felt like a different person and it took her some time to define her identity.
