61 Ricketts
62 Harlequin's Disease

A horrible yet extremely rare skin disease that occurs within the womb. The skin of the baby is not able to keep moisture and thus it hardens an cracks in diamond shaped scales, much like Victorian harlequin clown outfit.

63 Eczema

An extreme case where your skin looks horrible and people look at you as if you are some alien... It oozes out your confidence and you are never free from the itching tendency.. Wonder why it is not in the top ten...

It runs in my family. but we didn't know what it was (even though we all had it) until my brother was born. (he is five now) the doctor told my parents he had eczema and they got scared because they didn't know if it was serious

Eczema is horrible, but can be controlled and is not fatal.

It's not deadly but it's annoying

Horrible big ugly spots

65 Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome

EDS, is something you are born with. Your connective tissue and joints are effected. This is not something that hits you later in life. For anyone to say they developed this is lying. If you have a bad form of it, it will effect you your whole life. If you have CLASSICAL EDS, all you need to do is eat healthy, take vitamins, fish oils, and other natural sorces. You need to exercise! If you are a man, find your place in a gym, don't overdo it! Keep your muscles strong to support your joints! Take yoga classes or learn to mediate to center yourself. Be careful about banging into things. Don't do any activities that you can fall in at high speeds or possibly injure yourself. Watch a lot of comedy (serious) learn how to be okay with it. Let someone in your life to be you're partner, your emergency nurse! Learn how to clan and close your own wounds and take time to rest. Do NOT take western pain meds! Get yourself in medical marijuana. There are more than just pain Benefits. Use CBT oils ...more

There are a few kinds of ED. Some deadly, some not at all. My husband is 41. His body is a roadmap of scars thought his life. However if you eat healthy, work out and avoid activities such as bike riding, life can be wonderful. This is only 1 kind of ED. It effects his connective tissue and joints. Meaning... he cuts very very easy. He has thousands of stitches. He can't get road rash... his skin just splits open. It hurts just like it would to any of us. However the cut will not be deep. Only the skin and tissue opens. I basically super glue him closed. His joints dislocate easy. He's used to that though.

This reduces your quality of life, leaving you reliant on pain medications and, possibly, a wheelchair. Heart problems and gastrointestinal problems follow suit. You are living a life where you are in constant pain. And it can cause spontaneous organ rupture, depending on the type

I went from a normal young adult to having permanent moderate-severe chronic pain, a limp requiring a cane or crutch at all times, and frequent and unpreventable major injuries (mainly joint dislocations). I stopped being normal at 20. That's when the permanent handicap started and had only worsened in the years since. I've dislocated literally almost all the bones one can dislocate without dying from it.

66 Spanish Flu

Spanish flu really should be in the top 25, maybe even the top 10. The worldwide outbreak came just after WW1 and killed more people than the entire war. Instead of attacking the elderly and the young like most influenza epidemics, it attacked young healthy people. Tragic.

Some scientist injected some healthy lab mice with Spanish flu and they died in three days!

100 million people died from Spanish flu in a week! - SuperBacca

67 Locked In Syndrome

This is an intense disease. You get it from being locked in places, do not laugh until you have contracted this disease. I can not even lock my car door with me in it without the f out.

69 Stevens-Johnson Syndrome

I had this disease when I was 11 and it was horrible. I had blisters all over my body, including in my mouth and down my throat. I also couldn't breathe that much. It is caused by medicine and you can get it by any medicine and any age. It was the worst pain of my life.

Horrible my coison had this disease the doctors said he's going to die but 10 percentage he could survive but he did survive. Its all your skin peeled of and bubbles form up (caused by your white blood cells) I'm eight years old and I happy I not to have this disease

72 Anxiety

Why does no one warn you that this is a debitating life sucking illness that can be impossible to recover from- it can begin with just being nervous around something/someone and end with the most terrifying depression in which you have no positive feelings whatsoever, nothing to feel anymore for family and friends - look it up- the worst attacks can make you believe you're dying and get you locked in mental hospital- and another warning:-antidepressants can make you get like this - they can worsen any depression to the point you want to due and gave nothing g to live for. You can lose EVERYTHING- family friends job house.. , enjoyment if life, confidence, independence, confidence to drive it go anywhere in your own ever again; you can end up hiding from the people you live because you can't feel love - or anything except sadness and terror- ever again. For gods sake why isn't there education about ANXIETY- so easy to prevent it if we knew it was possible that something as simple as ...more

I already have pretty bad anxiety. I used to have reoccurring anxiety attacks when I was younger. I sought therapy and it helped. It didn't get rid of it completely and I still suffer from it. I'm 13 now. - username34

I had anxiety, sort of. I still have it, but not as much as I had before. I used to wake up everyday with some anxious thoughts. Not anymore. I hope you get better.. - MusicalPony

79 Obsessive Compulsive Disorder

I have a weird version of this. It only really comes out when there are a lot of uneven (you will probably laugh at this, but go ahead) holes in things. Walls, melted cheese, you name it, I'll break it. It also causes me to overthink other things more than normal. I know, it's a weird version of it, but it's a version and I have it. - username34

I have such bad OCD, that when I walk into a room, ONE THING that is just out of place, I get all twitchy and can't stand still. I cannot STAND "messy" rooms that are actually clean and when I eat a candy like Skittles (go ahead and laugh people who don't have this) I have to separate it all by color and they all have to be the same number. Anything on the floor, I get all twitchy. I absolutely HATE this disease, but I'll deal with it.

I have this when I am writing some times a word wont look write so I have to trace over and re-write the word about 50-60 time before my brain thinks it looks write it sucks so much on school tests and on homework

OCD is not a disease, in my opinion.. It's a disorder, it's not harmful.
