After Poulton-Le-Field’s Michael scan, it is not known whether she speaks Chinese, Filipino, South African, Italian, Polish, or French.
Michaela, the interior design business owner, said: “I have been plagued by racism for the past few years.
“It was first mourned in July 2015 in a supermarket. Someone said, ‘those polish people are everywhere’ – that’s scary.
“People always say I speak Chinese. ‘Can I have chicken fried rice?’ People have been working on the phone laughing, saying it always happens.
“People saying these things show how far my identity has gone with the situation. It’s frustrating to wake up in the morning and not know how you sound.”

Talking about how she discovered the condition after the surgery, Karen explained: “Dr. O’Connor said, ‘Karen, what are you doing? Your hand is exposing you.’ I do not know if my left hand will open the buttons of my shirt until he says so.
“So I begin to rebuke with my right hand. As soon as I stopped, the left hand began to remove them. So he made an urgent call to another doctor and said, ‘Mike, you need to get here right away; we have a problem.’
She said: “I light a cigarette and balance it in an ashtray, then my left hand goes forward and staggers it. It will take things out of my handbag, and I will leave because I do not understand. I lost a lot before I realized what was going on.

Hayley Smith, a teenager in Alabama, said she was convinced she had died before she recovered from watching Disney movies.
The 17-year-old said, “My parents were divorced, and I did not cope well. But one day, while I was sitting in an English class, I had this strange feeling that I was dead, and I could not shake it.
“When I got home, I thought I’d visit a cemetery, to be close with other people like me – dead – but since there was no one nearby, I went straight to my house and tried to sleep in it.”
Leaving her friends, she eventually sought the help of a therapist. And also, realized that it was a real condition that others were experiencing.
Watching Disney movies made her realize that she had a “warm, vague feeling” that she should be alive.
Hayley added: “Little Married, Aladdin, Sleeping Beauty, Bumblebee – I was looking at it all. I asked my boyfriend Jeremy, ‘How can I die when Disney makes me feel this good?’

Nick said: “I’m drinking voluntarily because it’s up to you whether you want this situation or not.
