recently i watched a TV program, telling a woman still alive after six years'sleeping without eating or drinking! during the six years, she was sleeping all the time and knew nothing about what happened around, her family thought maybe she had died but what's strange is that she was still breathing all along! when she wakes up after the six years' sleeping, she looks like exactly same as normal person, nothing changed! at first this seems unbelievable, but nextly some medical expert explained that this phenomenon is called HYSTERIA in medicine. have you ever heard about similar news?

I have never heard of such a thing. But I could not quite believe it. The body needs nutrients for the heart even pump blood. Without any food it is impossible to survive for 6 years. I once heard of a person who had not drunk a drop of water for 10 years. That could still be believed but this is incredible. If this is true, then this is a miracle.

i take it she was in a coma and in hospital? people can be in this state for years and then wake up. if she was not on life support then i think this is impossible.

ok.. well it's impossible for some1 to sleep for 6 years without eating or drinking for 6 years and still be alive. 1 reason, because the body will become dehydrated and become dried. her body was probably supported by a lot of injections, which is not eating or drinking, but can still provide the body with nutrients and food. this type of body condition occurs all the time, it's usually when the the person got hit hard in the head, causing the brain to malfunction. the body can still breath because breathing is an automatic action that does not require the brain to control it.
