"It's unfortunate really. It seems your child has..."
"What?! My child does have something!! Tell me, now!"
"Yes, well... your child lacks a certain sense..."
"I knew it, I told you dear, she is blind! Oh god, what are we going to do?!?"
"Honey, don't worry, let the doctor finish speaking. It surely can't be that bad, right, Doctor?" Reassures the woman's husband, while glancing questioningly at the doctor.
"Ah, yes, she can see. But she has congenital insensitivity to pain. That is to say-"
"Oh god, our child's life is ruined! AHRrrAAhhhrr ah" sobs the hysterical mother.
"Doctor, please finish, what exactly is genital insense to pain?"
"Congenital insensitivity to pain, CIPA for short, is a syndrome that affects the ability to feel pain."
"So.. So our child won't ever feel pain? That doesn't sound too bad..." Whimpers the mother hopefully.
"I hate this part..." the doctor sighs to himself quietly, "Without the ability to feel pain, children will not learn to understand why they shouldn't undertake certain actions. They also won't cry or tell you when they are injured in any way since they won't realise. It can also lead to self-mutilation, as they find pain to be curious and not bad."
"..." blinks the mother, as she processes what was just said.
"WAAAAAHHHHHHHHH" she screams, as she breaks down in tears.
