Pretty much a Zombie

Now that is a wire serviceNow that is a wire service

Melissa Peacock suffers from a rare cranial hypertension where her brain fluid builds up and causes pressure on her brain. Causing nausea, blurred vision and potentially death. Doctors have installed an internal shunt that drains her excess brain fluid directly into her stomach. Yes, I know, yeccch!

While no migraines, no nausea and not dying all sound good, she's still eating her own brain (fluid)!

    My friends think the fact that I digest fluid from my brain is a bit weird—but my quality of life is so much better since I had the shunt put in place, I don't care. It felt like I was constantly trying to see through a steamed-up window. Sometimes I'd have almost no vision at all.

But if she hangs upside-down, the stomach acids can seep into her brain!

If I had not eaten the parts of my brain that controled my sense of humor.
