What is Hanahaki Disease?
The Hanahaki Disease is an illness born from one-sided love, where the patient throws up and coughs up flower petals when they suffer from one-sided love.
The infection can be removed through surgery, but the feelings disappear along with the petals.
The Hanahaki Disease is an illness born from unrequited love, where the patient’s throat will fill up with a flower, they will then proceed to throw, and cough up the petals, (sometimes even the flowers).
One of the only ways for the disease to ‘disappear’ is if, the said person returns the feeling (it can’t be resolved with friendship, it has to be genuine feelings of love).
The infection can also be removed through surgery, though the feelings disappear along with the petals.
If they choose nether options, or the feeling is not returned in time, then the patient’s lungs will fill up with flowers, and will eventually suffocate.
There is no specific flower for the disease, but it’ll either be the crushes favorite type of flower, or their favorite color.
We can only hope for the patients and pray that the crushes favorite flower isn’t a type of rose.
(The length of the disease varies with each person. But on an average, it will last up to 2 or 3 months, but sometime it’ll only last, a couple of weeks).
Is the Hanahaki disease real?
No. It is a fictional illness that occurs when the person who loves you doesn’t love you back.
Often seen in characters in fan fiction, someone infected with Hanahaki disease will have a throat that fills up with flowers and they cough out the petals.
If the person’s love is returned then the disease is cured.
The other “cure” is surgical removal, and along with the flowers, the feelings are removed as well.
If left untreated it is said that the flowers will suffocate the lungs and the lovesick person will suffocate and die.
While certainly a dreadful faux demise, I would recommend googling Hanahaki and looking at the images as the illustrations are quite fascinating!
It is actually just a fictional disease that is born from one-sided love.
The patient/victim is effected because their crush/attraction hasn’t returned their feelings.
The Hanahaki Disease has the victim coughing up bloody flower petals because the disease takes place in the lungs.
The disease can be cured but the feelings for that person disappear.
The person can return the feelings and the disease would stop affecting the person.
