Trivia: Alice in Wonderland Syndrome


Alice in Wonderland Syndrome

I guess we are all familiar with the popular fairytale,Alice in Wonderland.
In fact just recently it had a new hit movie.
But don't you know that the same title is also used in a 
neurological disorder?.Alice in Wonderland Syndrome(AWS)
is where a person infected cannot differentiate reality
from imaginary.For example a person with AWS
will see a little mice as big as him/her.Objects around
them appear to be growing or shrinking or in other
words they have an acute visual disorder
and they lose their sense of reality.

That's very interesting! I bet most kids would show this kinda syndrome, as kids are highly imaginative! LOL!

But frankly, I have encountered a few of the real cases, specially those critically ill patients that claimed they saw big spiders, crocs or 'someone' bothering them during their hospital stay!>_<

Have a nice day!

I can't imagine living a life like that, it would be so difficult to exist. I really feel for someone with that condition, so sad.

Love and Blessings,
