9. No Pain
While the idea of being unable to experience pain might seem wonderful, it is actually more of a curse than a blessing.
Steve Pete has a rare condition known as congenital analgesia, which means that he is unable to experience pain – the warning sign that something is going wrong with your body.
As the result of his ability, Steve has more than once been unaware of breaking a bone – once discovering a broken arm only when the bone came through his skin!
As rare as it is, Steve’s brother Chris also suffers from congenital analgesia. Without the alert of pain, they both must travel through daily life carefully – unable to sense any internal or external harm that may be occurring to them.
