I'm in complete awe of you Jonathan. #2 is correct, words just aren't enough. I can only hope that I can muster up a tenth of your courage, grit and pure moxie when life decides to test my mettle . Well done. The world is a better place for having you in it.

That must be extremely painful, I can only assume he is constantly on very heavy medication.

Not meaning to minimize anything from this story, the opposite is the case, but the title of the video made me skeptical and I was questioning the correctness of the title in reference to the story, so after searching a little I came upon this reputable source for those who wish to read more about this genetic skin disorder. Although massive issues with skin blistering and open wounds are part of the illness, skin falling off upon touch is not.

I have seen several patients with this illness and I made reference to it a few weeks ago, the same time that I submitted this very same video! I don't know how many thousand videos a day Snotr get sent (I would like to know) but for some reason very few of mine get air play and most are more interesting than some of the junk that does get through, but hay ho!

One of the awful things about this condition which was not mentioned in the video is that new skin which grows rather quickly actually grows through the bandages which have to be bathed and replaced extremely regularly. If any of you believe you are going to meet your maker one day this is one of the questions he/she ought to be asked WHY!

#10 Geez, The young man, Jonathan, has said that "They call us butterfly children because our skin is as fragile as a butterfly's wings".
I think I will go with his discription of what the doctors call him.
#11 I only submitted this one a few days ago. Maybe you messed up the link when you sent it?

#11 This is just one of a countless of odd diseases that exists, there are so many that only a handful of people have that are just not known. One has to realize that there is a reason that they can't spend a fortune on creating a cure for something so uncommon. It's truly a shame when it happens to someone but it's like that with everything in life. Money will always be the leading question.

#11 as #12 said..you either messed up the link..or it was a copy on another channel that got deleted. But that wasnt a double submit..sux was the only one yet..and even he double submits. Jetman emirates vid for example..he submitted it amongst others, but wasnt first.

#14 Okay so now we have your attention:-
1) How many submits do you get in an average day
2) How many have you got accepted and waiting to show
3) As you seem to have information on who's double submitted how many of my submits have you got on file and how many are going to get viewed

#11 JJ are you an MD??? In your comment you are stating "I have seen several patients with this illness..." that would indicate that you are indeed a physician or a nurse or other medical professional...just really curious...
