La Maladie de lAddernuo Documentaire Choc
Is it filmingé Hi, my name is Olivier Thériault I'm 22 and I suffer from the Addernuo Disease quot;Addernuoquot; is the contraction of two Latin words quot;Sternuoquot; and quot;Addormioquot; that respectively mean quot;to sneazequot; and quot;to fall asleepquot; So, the disease is a hormonal malfuction. Everytime I sneeze, my body sends a signal that pass through my thyroid gland
but it's defective, so when the signal reaches my brain it's too strong and my brain can't manage it. By then, my brain automatically goes into sleep mode. To put it simply, everytime I sneeze, I fall asleep. 8% of the population are likely to develop the Addernuo Disease. That means approximately 1 out of 12 people. The first time it happened to me, I was 19. And that was a huge shock cause it happened to me while I was iving my car.
It was a huge impact, but as you can see, I escaped unhurt. At first, I didn't know what was going on with me so I kept living my life as if nothing had happened, but the same thing kept happening to me. Come on, come on, come on, hurry up. Pull! PULL! He looks like a dead frog.
Come here. Hey we got him! The most difficult part isn't when I fall and hurt myself but it's when I wake up and try to understand where I am. Now that the s found out I've had the Addernuo disease I can't have a job, I can't ive, I can't play sports, so most of the time, I spend my time watching TV or not doing much. I've hurt myself so many times that now,
my wants me to put a helmet everytime I get out of my apartment. I should be wearing it now, but don't tell my . It still keeps happening to me while I'mmy apartment but it's not that bad. There's no cure for that disease yet but the scientists are currently looking for one. So if you want to make a donation, go to the official facebook page. Or you can just show your support to the fight against the Addernuo Disease

Do you have enough footageé Yeah yeah, we'll be able to make something out of it. Okay then. Thanks for taking your time to film this.
