Rare Disease: Fingernails Grow Where Hair Should

Do fingernails gross you out?  Anytime I want to get Shannon to stop whatever she is doing and gag a little bit, all I have to do is mention the word ‘fingernails’.  They gross her out.  Not on someone’s fingers (that’s where they are SUPPOSED to be), but OFF of the fingers (clippings).  And extra-long fingernails (not the fake ones, the real ones!) gross her out as well.

So, in an effort to be the best boyfriend EVER, I seek out stories like this:  stories that draw sympathy from her, while at the same time grossing her out with the content.  I often try to guess if her love for people will win out (and she makes it all the way through the article/story), or if her queasiness will get the best of her and make her stop watching/reading.

Meet Shayna Isom, the ONLY person in the WORLD known to have this condition: instead of hair growing on her skin, BLACK NAILS are growing.

This story is as heartbreaking as it is freaky!
