Lately, so many people are curious about a weird disease that we know today as Hanahaki disease. And often people got so curious that they are looking for this disease all over the internet. And with some shady rumors floating around regarding Hanahaki disease, I think we need to clear things up before the situation gets worse.
Hanahaki disease is an illness that is born from one-sided love that makes the patient throw up and cough up flower petals. So this disease only affects people who suffer from one-sided love. However, surgery can effectively remove this disease. But the feeling of love disappears along with the petals. As you can see, this disease sounds dangerous to one’s health and odd at the same time. No wonder it makes many people curious.
The definition of Hanahaki disease
The idea behind this disease is when someone is suffering from one-sided love, their throat will fill up with flowers, which the petal then come out of their mouth. After all, the Hanahaki disease is an illness born from unrequited love. So the patient will throw and cough up the petals and sometimes even the whole flowers until the flowers fill up their lungs completely.
There are some things that can make the disease go away. First, if when the patient’s love is no longer one-sided. So when the person they like returns the feeling (it has to be true love, not friendship or out of pity) the disease will go away on its own.
Another way to get rid of this disease is by performing surgery on the patient. While it is unnatural, surgery is actually an effective way to get rid of Hanahaki disease. And once the flowers are gone, the feeling of sadness caused by one-sided love will be gone as well.
If nothing is done about the diseases, however, the patient may get overwhelmed by the flowers sooner or later. Even worse, the flowers will fill up the patient’s lungs and suffocate them. So an immediate solution needs to be reached, or the patient will lose their life.
As for the flowers, no one knows about the type of flowers involved with the Hanahaki disease. But, some people are speculating that the type of flowers in the patient’s throat will be the favorite type of flower of their crush. The same thing goes for the color of the flowers. Now, you can guess how bad it could be if the crush’s favorite type of flower is rose.
An example of someone who suffered from Hanahaki disease
Imagine seeing a lifeless body on the ground and the mouth is full of stained petals. Flowers surround the body, floating in a pool of blood. This proves that love can kill, and it is not a sight that is pleasant to the eyes. The length of the disease is also interesting. Some people say that the Hanahaki disease could last for up to 3 months. But on average, it should only last about two weeks.
Is the Hanahaki disease real?
The Hanahaki disease is horrible, but don’t worry, it isn’t real. It is a fictional illness that affects people with unrequited love. So in the fictional story, the patient with Hanahaki disease will have their throat filled up with petals and flowers.
If the patient’s crush returns their love, then the disease will go away on its own. The other cure for the Hanahaki disease is surgery. Also, one more thing, when the Hanahaki disease is removed through surgery, the patient’s feelings will be gone when the flowers are taken out.
But if the Hanahaki disease is left untreated, the patient will die in a horrible way. They’ll cough up petals and flowers non-stop. Until at some point, their lungs will be filled with flowers, and they will suffocate.
Hanahaki disease comes from Dan Brown’s novel, The Inferno. So now we can know for sure that this disease is entirely fictional. Don’t believe any rumor that says otherwise. That said, this disease is a very interesting one.
You may already have heard about the word lovesickness, so the Hanahaki disease is bringing this word to life. There are also many other fictional diseases similar to Hanahaki disease, such as Mad Zombie, Electrogonorrea, Bendii Syndrome, and so on.
