 Brit Man Suffered from Walking Corpse Syndrome for Nine Years

A British man suffered from a rare condition that made him think that he is no longer alive for the last nine years.

The man, who has been identified only as Graham, suffered from a condition known as Cotard's Syndrome, which is also called 'Walking Corpse Syndrome'.

When the doctors revealed their diagnosis to the man, he did not believe them and insisted he was dead. Graham suffered from severe depression nine years ago and even attempted suicide by immersing himself in a bath with the water in contact with an electric appliance.

Eight months after his attempted suicide, he told the doctors that his brain was either dead or missing, and stopped smoking and eating food as he thought that there was no point as he was dead. "I didn't want to face people. There was no point. I didn't feel pleasure in anything. I used to idolise my car, but I didn't go near it. All the things I was interested in went away. I lost my sense of smell and my sense of taste. There was no point in eating because I was dead. It was a waste of time speaking as I never had anything to say", Graham said.

He underwent months of therapy and has now managed to overcome his syndrome.
