5 rare health conditions that can be considered as superpowers

We used to think (not without reason) that a disease is an unpleasant or even dangerous health condition. However, there are some diseases that can be compared with superpowers, though these powers are not so cool as they might seem.

Here are five rare health conditions that some people experience nowadays.

Quite impressive, isn't it? Have you known some of these health conditions? Do you know any other of that kind? Tell us!

My father seemed to experience no pain. When he had a quadruple bypass he asked for, but didn’t get, no anesthesia.

Not sure whether it was an advantage but met a girl at college who never suffered thirst. So on an overnight trip across France when the rest of the group were drinking anything we could acquire, by not drinking she allowed the rest of us to get by longer - yes it was a health problem she'd always had but as a 20 year old she was well aware of it and knew when to take a drink, but she was the only one in the carriage who wasn't suffering from the heat and lack of fluids.

I had a friend with hyperthymesia. She drove us all mad with her perfect recall of everything everyone said in her presence. She had a fun after hours job on tv programmes doing continuity. She could remember how full the glasses were or how far down a cigarette was smoked when scenes were repeated.

Hard to believe. I wouldn't like to remember every detail of the past. It's also very dangerous not to be able to feel pain. What if I'm resting my hand on a hot plate and don't know it's on high? As for patting snakes, I would imagine that the person would probably be safe because a snake attacks when threatened. If the person has no fear of it, it probably won't attack. Very interesting indeed. Thanks for the info.
