Wouldn’t it be lucky if you could never feel pain? That’s what happened to one little girl named Gabby. From birth, she couldn’t feel anything, sleeping through needle pricks and waking up freezing in her crib. Her parents, Trish and Steve Gingras, worried about these things. It was like she couldn’t feel them. They realized early on that their young daughter could feel no pain. Her parents thought it was an amazing feat until they started thinking about the many consequences.
Chewing on Her Hands
Though many wish they didn’t have to feel physical pain when it happens, imagine not being able to stop chewing on your hand or tongue. You couldn’t feel what you were doing, so you’d continue doing it. That’s what happened for Gabby. She started chewing on her fingers as all babies do. However, she didn’t stop because she never felt the pain. Poor Gabby ended up mutilating her fingers because the chewing had gotten so bad.
