I’ve been so off my game with the headline project. Here’s a doozy of an article for you. It’s a great read by Susan Dominus for the New York Times.
Krista and Tatiana are a pair of 4-year old twins, conjoined at the head. They craniopagus conjoined twins. They share a neural bridge. It’s a bit of a long read, but it’s an amazing story about medical science, psychology, family and empathy. They seemingly share one mind, thoughts and emotions are passed between one and the other.
This one part made me smile, and if you don’t want to read the article because of it there is something wrong with you.
When the girls were younger, they used to try to pull their heads away from each other, Simms told me. “And I would say to them, ‘You can’t do that,’ ” she said. “I just told them: ‘You girls are stuck. You’re stuck together.’ ” Sometimes the girls would offer up that information themselves. “I am stuck,” Krista told me one afternoon, pausing as she and her sister made their way back to the bathroom, where they wanted to play with the faucets. She tapped the portion of the head that she shares with her sister. And does she like being stuck? “I love I am stuck,” she said. She smiled. She had the dreamy look of someone romantically infatuated. “I love my lovely sissy,” she said.
