Life Imitates Horror: Creepy Crawlies!

Lets start the week off in a gruesome fashion shall we? With another addition to Musings Across a Continuum’s ‘Life Imitates Horror’ collection.

I was reflecting today on the phenomenon of what is known in psychiatry as ‘formication’. This is the delusion often experienced by ravenous methamphetamine users, who may, post administration of the dirty crystals feel the sensation of bugs or insects crawling under their skin. The lovely Ashley Judd who starred in a pretty average horror film entitled ‘Bug‘, experienced such a sensation with mediocre horrendous consequences. This is leading somewhere, stay with me people…

Are there bugs in there?

Are there bugs in there?

So I was looking for something related to aforementioned psychiatric phenomena and came across a video on that haven for charming and classic video vagrancy YouTube: ‘Nose Maggots.’ Posted by YouubeeeTube, quoting the sage like tip “Never snort rotting meat” the video demonstrates the reality of what would happen if in fact your delusions of formication where NOT delusions, that you had a sinus cavity full of maggots. WARNING not for those with a weak stomach.

    Sweet Mary, Jesus and Joseph. I had to click off after a few seconds. Shivers went down my spine. Yucky!

    Messed up isn’t it? I spent half an hour itching after I saw it. Thought I’d share the pain around!
