I am. Most odd.

SoleSource Thu 25-Oct-12 21:06:28

Is it curable. I wonder what triggers this.

Very strange. Can't decide if it is going to be something causing it, or whether it will turn out to be one of those psychosomatic/mass delusions thingies. Wasn't there something else once, lots of girls fainting in the same school?

I'm watching it. I don't know what to think!

lucjam Thu 25-Oct-12 21:12:48

I wondered if it was a hoax but hmmmm not sure seems pretty real.

Jellykat Thu 25-Oct-12 21:15:16

I'm watching, seems very real to me.. confused

How cruel trot so many people to accuse them of faking it. After 5 mins watching them its obvious they suffering greatly.

Not watching but saw the ad and instantly thought of Salem - sounds like teenage girl self-induced hysteria to me. Would love to know what people think after watching it though (can't watch it myself as dp has gone out and I don't know how to turn the television on because I am a muppet and because I hardly ever watch TV).

NellyBluth Thu 25-Oct-12 21:17:53

It does seem real, didn't mean to suggest it wasn't. So odd.

There was a Lady on radio 4 the other day with Tourettes. Every other word almost she would say biscuit. i wondered if she was a mumsnetter smile

Got those first few words really wrong! You know what I mean!

SoleSource Thu 25-Oct-12 21:19:00

There wrre people in USA at time disbelieving it.

SucksToBeScaryMe Thu 25-Oct-12 21:20:03

Hi Sole smile

You got a remote Remus?

Mass psycho genic illness

SoleSource Thu 25-Oct-12 21:25:58

Hmm cover up, erin brochvich

TheOriginalNutcracker Thu 25-Oct-12 21:27:23

If it is psychological though, then would they do while heavily sedated, like that one girl did ??

Jellykat Thu 25-Oct-12 21:28:29

Some weird poisoning from the field/track?

SoleSource Thu 25-Oct-12 21:28:44

Good point.

NellyBluth Thu 25-Oct-12 21:29:49

See, I was erring towards that mass psychogenic illness (that was the term I was looking for!) but yes, doing it when sedated...
