If you know of a disease that is more horrible then this.. post.

Fatal Familial Insomnia
A extremely rare prion disease passed down through families, similar to Creutzfeldt–Jakob disease. What this disease does to you basically is completely devoid you of the ability to REM sleep.You are constantly awake, or in a light sleep for about a year.
It starts with paranoia, moves on to delusions, insanity, eventually leading to dementia.. and after that death.
Some interesting videos..

And I don't know if this is real or not--probably not---but on House they had a guy who got some kind of disease that caused him to be in a constant state of the worst pain his brain could comprehend because it caused the part of his brain which controlled pain to malfunction. If that's real I would say it's the worse.

The worst disease is got to be SARS. There is no way out.

Elephantiasis of the genitals, the worst part of it is that, I believe, you have to live with it because it doesn't kill you. I would not recommend that you Google this phrase unless you really, REALLY want to know.

on grey's anatomy there was a lady who every time she bruised grew bone tissue in its place, very painful, the result of an extremely rare genetic disorder, possibly prion in nature.

The worst disease ever is called a crappy attitude and work ethic. It is the most debilitating thing on this earth.
It's not your views that divide us, it's what you think my views should be that divides us.

If you think I will give up my rights and forsake social etiquette to make you "FEEL" better you are sadly mistaken

If liberal democrats would just stop shooting people gun violence would drop by 90%
