Post 171: Locked in Syndrome

I was watching discovery the other night, and they had featured a patient with ‘Locked in Syndrome’ a case where a person’s all senses including pain is completely on, but his motor movement is restricted or absent.

These patients typically tend to communicate via eyes of via tapping (if they can).

Read Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Locked-in_syndrome) for an interesting take on a French Author who dictated an entire book using his eyes.

I am terrified of such a state, how will I communicate, how will I write this blog?

Can you imagine, being unable to do nothing, being wanting to everything (including wanking ;-), and guess what you still have to live.

It must be a strange life to live, almost like being forced to be a Buddha.

It sounds perverse yet romantic...
