due to 'Walking Corpse Syndrome'
-Haley Smith, 17, suffered from the ultra-rare illness Cotard’s Syndrome
-Sufferers genuinely believe they are dead, or body parts no longer exist
-Some die from starvation as they feel they no longer have to eat
-Miss Smith eventually overcame the condition with help of therapist
-Also credits Disney films with her recovery as they made her 'feel alive'

Quote
A teenage girl spent three years of her life convinced she was dead due to a rare medical condition known as 'Walking Corpse Syndrome'.

Haley Smith, 17, suffered from the ultra-rare illness Cotard’s Syndrome.
Sufferers genuinely believe they are dead, or that parts of their body no longer exist, and some die from starvation because they feel they no longer have to eat.

But with the help of a therapist – and, bizarrely, Disney films – she recovered.

This sounds like she has some kind of mental illness. I would say the solution would be for her to be put in a mental hospital (to put it harshly but honestly).

She's already seen a therapist and got over it lol it's right there in the post, also, guys, seriously, stop posting up the daily mail as a news source.

That is really strange. She obviously needs some professional help. Either that, or this story is not true?
