Diseases to be considered

Harlequin type ichthyosis - Pretty much anything involving fetuses gone wrong is a WINNER, ding ding ding!! :D

Kuru - Disease you get from cannibalism? AWESOME!

Cordycepts fungus - I know it only attacks arthropods, but something similar to this would be rather fascinating. Besides, check this shit out (probably don't want to be eating while watching this).

Tarantism - *sings "Dancing Queen" from the rooftops*

CIPA - A little more cliche I guess...not that we care 8D;;

Some pyschological ones:
- Depersonalization
- Hypersomnia (possibly used in conjunction with something else like night terrors/nightmares)
- Fetishism (of course)
- Any number of paraphilias
- Rumination (kind of gross, but not gross enough to be a central problem...)

Well, that's all I've got...I went through what I could find of the DSM-IV online and most of it is boring/routine D: How are these? Too cliche/out there? Anyone got some more? *A*;

LOLOLOL EW MADDY
THAT WAS THE GROSSEST POST I HAVE EVER READ IN MY LIFE XD I swear to god, the cordyceps video was SO FUCKING NASTY and totally creepy (omg the music...haha), the part where the fungus is growing out of the ant's head gave me the heebie-jeebies @A@ HOW DID YOU FIND THIS?!??! How did you find ANY of these, for that matter??! Kuru??? Harlequin type ichthyosis?!?! SRSLY I'm totally impressed. ♥ Good hunting, my sushi roll baby! T^Tb We definitely have to use CIPA (even if it is a bit cliche), kuru (jesus....this one is the creepiest thing ever), ichthyosis (oooh btw one of the characters in Carnivale has this! He's the 'lizard man' in the carnival XD), and some variation of cordyceps that attacks people (hoho were you thinking of the mining/slave colonies too when you saw the video? :D). And we should use all of the psychological disorders, except maybe rumination because....ew. XD

Btw what about Hydrocephalus? PLUS check this out. Fucking creepy, no? I h-hope you don't leave near there D:

AND. READ THIS.

Lol, I think I may have hypersomnia. 8D

LOL I think I may have hypersomnia as well 8DDD HAHAHA and I found most of the physical diseases through this post on fandom_wank XDDD People were claiming diseases, so I just went through the comments and picked out the rarer/interesting ones. I'm always amazed at the amount of random information you can find on f_w XD

BUT YEAH that cordyceps video is going to make me run screaming from wild mushrooms for the rest of my fucking LIFE DDDDx asodfijdkjfd. Ahaha which makes it so perfect for our diseased, festering mangababy, no? =wwww= No one will be able to sleep again after reading our magnum opus of grossness, right here, ohohohoh :D :D :D

LOL OH MY GOD that Dr Crow legend sounds AWESOME we should totally use it! lolol "water-head" ggughfugh so creepy ♥ I don't know where in Ohio that is, but I'm never going into the woods alone again ;;___;; omg I also love that second one!! Cannibalism FTW! We totally need a cult of cannibals in this baby x3333 I think I'll look up some more urban legends for ideas, they're so cool :D~~

*raises hand* I don't know if these count since they're not diseases but ...allow me to voice my humble ideas. *wibbles*

1. I once saw a horror TV show in Shanghai (or maybe it was a movie?) about where a child could see numbers on others' foreheads. I think it took place at an orphanage. The numbers were as if some one took a pin and scratched deep into the flesh. Anyway, the numbers foretold the order of death of the children.

2. Stanford Experiment. 8V There was another Chinese TV show/movie/whatever based off of a psychotic killer who was a "prisoner" during something liek the Stanford Experiment. All I remember is that when they finally found his hiding hole deep in the woods, they just found old newspaper clippings of the "Standford Experiment", and pictures of the "guards" tacked up on the moldly wooden walls. The killer must've been out for revenge.

3. In the Deathgate Cycle, there's an undead thing called a lazar. Basically, if a person dies and is resurrected too quickly, its ghost forever haunts the body. In other words, the body and soul never quite separate, and is in eternal pain. Therefore, the lazar wants to kill its resurrector. Frequently, a lazar case happens when some one can't bear to part with a loved one.

4. There's always drugs, and they're easy to invent. In Minekura's Wild Adapter, the drug turns the individual into a beast.

5. While this isn't a "disease," spiders can lay their eggs inside human bodies. Rare, but it happens.

6. lol ENJOY. ♥
