Walking corpse syndrome, also called Cotard's Syndrome, is an affliction where someone really seriously and truly believes that they are dead, they do not exist (or a specific body part does not exist), or they've had all their blood or organs removed.

Cotard's syndrome happens in three stages:

(i) Germination stage — the symptoms of psychotic depression and of hypochondria appear;

(ii) Blooming stage — the full development of the syndrome and the delusions of negation;

(iii) Chronic stage — continued, severe delusions and chronic psychiatric depression

Cotard's syndrome usually is encountered in people afflicted with a psychosis (e.g. schizophrenia), neurological illness, mental illness, clinical depression, derealization, and with migraine headache.

Several treatments for this disorder include anti-depressants, anti-psychotics, mood stabilizers and ECT or electroconvulsive therapy.

I've been told that I live life like a walking corpse...what do you call those people?

They told me that just because I don't drink, smoke, do drugs, go to parties or do the usual stuff that most people do I'm dead. I think I am since I hardly feel anything.

I never knew I was dead. I thought it was just avoiding useless crap.

Maybe you're an introvert? Or maybe you actually make smart life choices and avoid getting into serious trouble.

I'd feel much more at home with Renfield's Syndrome.

http://www.wisegeek.org/what-is-renfields-syndrome.htm

I guess according to the site I was into zoophagia. O.o

Frequently I would eat meat raw, was fixated on the smell and taste of blood, and eating anything well done made me feel sick. Developed it shortly after I became highly sensitive to dairy. The smell of butter or milk mademe literally gag.

To this day I have lesser but similar aversions, and when I'm feeling sick, nothing makes me feel better than a steak that's been JUUUUUUUST seared so to hold in the juices and the meat itself is about room temperature.

>.>

Maybe that's TMI.

Drifters. Just drifting through life. 'Cause that's what drifters do.
