You hate for your brain to turn you on this horrific way without warning. Even though you’re physically healthy, you never know that this mental illness or mental disorder can mess your life up in a terrifying way and can later drive you mad.
Apotemnophilia is an unusual medical condition in which the sufferer has a strong sexual interest to amputate their body part, especially legs, even though they didn’t need to have the legs amputated for any medical reason. They’re not physically sick, and yet they simply would like to have their healthy legs cut off/removed in an attempt to achieve happiness. This sound weird though! I really can’t understand why would they want their healthy legs or arms to be cut off?
Fregoli syndrome, also called Fregoli delusion is a rarely seen disorder which is associated with a brain lesion and is always perceived as paranoid in nature. People with this disorder behold a delusional belief that different people are actually the same person who appears in a variety form of disguises. This syndrome was first documented in a paper by P. Courbon and G. Fail in 1927 which discussed a case study of a 27-year-old female who believed she was being persecuted by two actors who came to pursuit her closely by taking the form of people she meets or knows.
They hold a delusional belief that they’re already dead and don’t exist in this world, and they believe that a body is no longer belongs to theirs; they see their body is rotting away; no blood and internal organs are inside the body, and sometimes they may perceive that they had been taken to the hell. This is a description of those who suffer from a medical condition called Cotard delusion or Cotard’s syndrome. This delusional belief was named after a French neurologist called Jules Cotard who initially described the condition in 1880. This disorder can also arise in the circumstance of mental illness or neurological illness which is normally associated with derealisation and depression.
