How tragic!!!

The daily Mail today reported on a woman who woke up believing she was french!

A rare brain disorder left Louise Clarke convinced she was french and living in Paris.She started speaking french and invited all her friends to stay with her in the french capital.She has also asked to eat croissants.After months of tests she became one of only 200 people in the world diagnosed with Susac's syndrome.

How tragic!

I wonder if all the french are actually suffering from this ailment and they are actually misguided poor souls?

This needs researching!

...although the Duke of Wellington did develop a treatment that keeps the condition under control. BM
