Rare diseases that cause death

No consensus on cause

She became increasingly breathless after nine years of exposure to dust from ­Charlie’s cage, an inquest heard

MEN Victim: Lilian Kershaw died after allergic reaction

A pensioner has died from a rare disease caused by her ­grandson’s pet cockatiel.

Lilian Kershaw, 84, became increasingly breathless after nine years of exposure to dust from ­Charlie’s cage, an inquest heard.

Charlie was rehomed when a specialist diagnosed her with rare disease bird fancier’s lung but she became reliant on oxygen and later died in hospital.

After the hearing, daughter Denise Bacchas, 56, said: “I certainly regret buying Charlie, my son will be heartbroken.

“If we had known we would never have got Charlie.

"I’d never even heard of this before and it was not ­something that crossed my mind.

“He was kept in his cage and was never let out because he was vicious.”

Cause: Cockatiel like Charlie

Widowed mum-of-six Lilian moved in with Denise and grandson Lloyd, now 24, in Failsworth, Oldham, after she became ­wheelchair bound.

Lilian’s chest physician, Dr Georges Ng Man Qwong, told ­Rochdale coroner Simon Nelson this week: “Bird fancier’s lung is an uncommon condition and we do not see it very often and a GP may only see a case once every 10 years.”

Assistance, I need to clarify some things. K?
From what you have posted so far--is that you have a death wish. This is based on your job, your GF ditching you cause you are unfaithful, lack family support, and generally feel at 25 your life should be over?
After reading your post a couple of times, I couldn't really find that you are ill or dying. That you just want to end it because your life sucks--at 25. Is that correct?
Okay--one reason. Because you are 25!!! I'm 49 yo terminally ill w/2 rare, incurable brain diseases. I'm dying at 49, and you are 25!! 25, heck I was livin large! Didn't want for anything

Mystery disease kills homosexuals
A mysterious epidemic, which has been discovered in homosexual men, is causing increasing concern in the United States.
The unknown condition, which consists of two separate diseases - a form of pneumonia and skin cancer, has been found in 180 patients in 15 states since last July. It has claimed around 75 lives so far in the US and up to 92% of the victims are homosexual men.
One death has been reported from the virus in London.
Although doctors have identified what appears to be a new disease, they have yet to devise a cure

There is so much we take for granted not only

by spinningmagnets

From the past, but where we are now.
There are 100 ways to die in Africa. If you get bit by a rattlesnake in California, its very painful, and you may even lose your foot, but deaths are rare. If you get bitten by Gaboon viper, you're dead in 5 minutes.
You "could" die from a bear, mountain lion, or alligator in North America, but again its very rare. In Africa, its very common for people to travel on rivers by boat, and for a hippo to turn it over and kill the people in it.
There is a long list of diseases and animals that are VERY likely to kill you there, of course, the most common cause of Afican death is war and starvation due to corrupt oppressive dictators.
