Not exactly an extremely rare condition, but certainly a bizarre one, Cataplexy manifests by inhibiting any sensation or movement of the body, therefore resulting in a temporal paralysis, where nothing other than brain activity can indicate the awaken state of a patient.
Here’s a documentary I found about June, a British woman suffering from Cataplexy, who experienced the worst nightmare coming true… the title is revealing and intriguing, but don’t stop here, the documentary is even better (and kind of short- if that helps). Enjoy
and let me know what you think of it. What would be your first thought if you were to suddenly wake up in a morgue?
