Sleep is the most important factor when it comes to the overall well-being of a person. It is only after a good night's sleep that we feel energized and ready to face the day. We feel real pleasure in waking up all night watching our favorite TV series, but that happens when we do it by choice.
What if you really want to take rest and you just can't sleep? Yes. That is what insomnia is all about. At times, it becomes so fatal that the one suffering from it will never ever sleep again! This is what has happened with these siblings.
And...evetually ends your life!
They reside in Qeensland, Australia. They suffer from the heriditary disease called Fatal Familial Insomnia (FFI).
This, in turn, will tire out the body and the mind. No cure or prevention from this disease exists, and it only affects an estimated less than 10 million people worldwide! How very weird is it!
It wasn't just their grandmother. Their mother died from FFI at the age of 61, while their aunt died at the age of 42. Their uncle also died from FFI aged only 20.
It makes the patient feel as if she has been awake for 6 months! It also brings along with it consequential problems of hallucinations, dementia, and loss of eye-sight.
We pray for their well-being...
