  • Sometimes it's better to keep the mystery unexplained.

A patient has written a disturbing account of life with condition which makes him think he is dead - and how he spends his days in graveyards as it is ‘the closest I could get to death.’

The man, identified only as Graham, woke up nine years ago utterly convinced that he was no longer alive even though he was still breathing.

Doctors diagnosed him with Cotard’s Syndrome, which is also known as ‘Walking Corpse Syndrome’ because it makes people think they have turned into zombies.

Just be grateful he doesn't think he's one of those zombies who prey on the brains of the living...

Hmmm the same amount of brain activity as someone in comma, but being wide awake and on his feet...

My posts consist of my opinions, beliefs, and experiences, feel free to disagree in a respectful manner.

I have a right to my beleifs, just as you have a right to not agree with them.

So long as we respect each other's beliefs, we won't have a single problem.

Wasn't there a story in the bible about a guy who only hung out in the cemetery and would cut himself ?  Then Jesus came
and the guy was restored to his full functionality after being delivered of a bunch of demons?  Maybe I am wrong, but
I thought I saw a story like that once.

Perhaps he had the same kind of thing going on since he would only hang in cemeteries.....
