As far as we can remember the world has been plagued with people who have mental disease. In the early beginning these people were thought to be possessed. Here is a list of oddly unique mental disorders that just might shock you.
Cotard or Cotard’s Syndroma
This weird mental disease makes the sufferer believe that he or she is dead. That his organs have putrefied and that he is a walking zombie. It was first reported in 1880, but didn’t receive scientific legitimacy until 2007.
Alice in Wonderland syndrome (AIWS) or Micropsia
This odd little mental disease messes with a patients space and time images. People and images are distorted making them feel tiny or that their body shape or size has been altered.

This rare and odd disease is when one sense is triggered, but when any of the senses are triggered it sets off a reaction that makes the others react. This causes the patient to literally see music, or taste shapes.
