Fatal familial insomnia


This short film is dedicated to Fatal Familial Insomnia and its insane symptoms. This is my creative vision of what it would be like through out the final stages, of this terrible disease. When you know there is no cure, would you let it play out. This is a story of a man who embraced it, but in the end took his own life from the overpowering delusions. The child represents the illness, how its like a demon. Bless the victims of this disease. This is remixed footage from my older videos. for more of my work go to You need to login to view this link

The age of onset is variable, ranging from 18 to 60, with an average of 50. However the disease tends to prominently occur in later years, primarily following childbirth. The disease can be detected prior to onset by genetic testing.[11] Death usually occurs between 7 and 36 months from onset. The presentation of the disease varies considerably from person to person, even among patients from within the same family.

The disease has four stages, taking 7 to 18 months to run its course:

The patient suffers increasing insomnia, resulting in panic attacks, paranoia, and phobias. This stage lasts for about four months.
Hallucinations and panic attacks become noticeable, continuing for about five months.
Complete inability to sleep is followed by rapid loss of weight. This lasts for about three months.
Dementia, during which the patient becomes unresponsive or mute over the course of six months. This is the final progression of the disease, after which death follows.
Other symptoms include profuse sweating, pinpoint pupils, the sudden entrance into menopause for women and impotence for men, neck stiffness, and elevation of blood pressure and heart rate. Constipation is common as well.'
