|UK Nurse Sues Hospital Claiming She was Hypnotised Her So She is Farting Non-stop by Peculiar005: Tue Oct 2021 09:48pm|
In a bizarre lawsuit a UK nurse brought against the NHS, she claimed she had been hypnotised by the hospital and was, as a result, farting 'against her will.'
Of all the "gastrointestinal disturbances," Xandra Samson, a nurse at Ealing Hospital, London, seemed to have been most bothered by uncontrollable flatulence.
According to Times Now, she claimed she was a victim of "gaslighting by way of low-frequency soundwaves." She also alleged her private parts were under 'attack" and that she was being "possessed."
She alleged poor heating and ventilation had everything to do with her getting possessed.
Citing the "ideomotor phenomenon,' she spoke about her condition in an email sent in April 2019.
According to Daily Mail, in the email she wrote, "I am a healthy individual and does not have any past medical history but recently I have had various symptoms including headaches, breathing difficulty (a feeling of getting choked), and gastrointestinal disturbance (borborygmus, spasms, flatulence)."
The London North West University Healthcare NHS Trust as a result asked to consult a psychiatrist thinking her mental health was suffering. But she turned the opportunity down claiming there was nothing wrong with her mental condition. She was 'let go' by December 2019.
She then tried to sue the trust but eventually lost the case after the judge ruled in her employer's favour.
