Post-holiday syndrome. Truth or lie? Myth or reality?

Now that summer has ended and nearly one hundred percent of the people who work have been incorporated into their jobs, it turns to talk of the post-holiday syndrome, as often happens almost every year. But experts have not accepted the existence of so-called Post-holiday syndrome.

Capgras’s Syndrome

What is the Capgras’s Syndrome ?

In 1923, the French psychiatrist Capgras described a syndrome of what he called “L’illusion des sosies“. Sosie is a French word meaning “double“, a person who looks like another one.

The patient claims that a person is a double or an impostor who has assumed this person’s appearance in order to deceive him. For instance, the patient claims his father is not his father, but either a double of him.

The person whose existence is denied is a very import person in the live of the patient, and he express his love to the real person and his hate to the double.
