5. your body develops small tumors underneath the skin
“Neurofibromatosis. It’s a disease where your body develops small tumors underneath the skin. Most sufferers have it ALL over their body. Their face, arms, and chest are usually the worst spots. To add, ironically injury to insult, they are extremely sensitive, and hurt to put pressure on. This proves awful when you realize that they have to clean all around them, to avoid infections and illness. Every day is a reminder of this affliction.
Then people make it worse. Because it looks so frightening, people will avoid, and mistreat those who have it.”

Patients are completely unable to feel any pain and are likely to hurt themselves without noticing and then dying of something normally preventable. Most patients apparently die of overheating before the age of 3.”
