Are those who have survived serious medical condition the undead, aka Zombies? Just an interesting thought I had the other day. I'm legally blind without my glasses or contacts & there is no way I'd survive in the wild without glasses or contacts. I also had 2 twelve hour back surgeries to correct scoliosis, one when I was 12 & one when I was 13 years old. Without these surgeries my spine may have collapsed on my lungs killing me or I'd be living in serious pain. I also had an aortic aneurism @ 7 years ago. I now have a mechanical heart valve and dacron aorta. Without the medications I'm on I'd also probably be dead. Am I undead or a zombie? I should have died 3 or 4 times now, 5 if you include the possibility of abortion. I wonder what percentage of people are undead.

No. You and others as lucky as you are modern medical miracles. Thank your lucky stars you were born in a modern first world country that values human life.

Want some delishes brain? If so you're a zombie.
Maybe you prefer blood? Than you're a vampire.
If you only are hooked on meds you can invent your own category. Maybe you call yourself a miracle? A medicle? Medicorn? Get it from unicorn and medicine... ha
party cheers hail for being alive!

I'm not a zombie.

I survived a serious medical condition a decade ago.

And I don't find brainz appetising.

Isn’t cancer tissue and cells technically “undead”? That’s the only thing I can think of at least that could be somewhat described as undead.

No we're not undead we are called miracles by many or lucky by some. We are still alive and kickin no undead here yet. Four years ago I had an aortic dissection and have a mechanical heart valve and a pacemaker.
