Another thing that caught my attention was the way people mentioned in the article reacted to Christina’s condition. Even at the beggining of the text, after telling the doctor about her weird symptomes, Christina wasn’t taken seriously until she couldn’t feel or control her body anymore. Later it was also mentioned how people on a public transport would look down on her, not understanding that the way she moved wasn’t something she could control. It was mentioned that even if she wanted to explain her condition, she wouldn’t know how to do so, since the nature of it was very diffrent from what we normally see.
