* Irukandji Syndrome. It is caused by being stung by Irukandji jellyfish and causes the worst pain a human can imagine in their entire body, vomiting and a phenomena called "impending feeling of doom". It isn't lethal to a human unless it is a child or someone with a weak heart. It can't be treated except for giving patients unholy amounts of painkillers to make it a ''little bit'' better. Oh yeah, and the venom takes ''weeks'' to get out of the system, so victims are stuck in this situation for over a month at least. The only reason why most patients don't [[DrivenToSuicide just kill themselves]] is because they are usually under strict medical surveillance and barely able to move.
** There have been a few cases where people swallowed one such jellyfish. Those that didn't die from the blood pressure hike had to be put into artificial coma because the doctors didn't know how else to treat the unimaginable pain. Also, since they get a lot more venom than those who simply got stung, they stay a bit longer in hospital. One case pretty much lived in one for ''over a year''.
* Some people argue about this in regards to Persistent Vegetative State. The people suffering from this are factual awake, can open and move their eyes, some even eat. But they are unresponsive and unconcious like someone in coma and while coma patients sometimes seem to notice their environment (as proven by brain waves), people with PVS usually don't (they are in a legal grey area since they are still seen differently from brain dead people and thus are not considered dead). If a person doesn't fully wake up between the first 6 months and first year, chances of them ever waking up drop down to 13%. And even if they do, the reason they are in this state is because of extreme brain damage, so [[AndIMustScream it might not even be desire-able for some people to wake up at all]].

** [[TheBible Revelation 6:9]] speaks of a time so terrible that people will be [[DrivenToSuicide trying to commit suicide]]... and not be able to. Some theologians suggest that this means people seeking a means to achieve some kind of invincible immortality in this life through technology will [[GoneHorriblyRight ultimately succeed]], but end up [[WhoWantsToLiveForever regretting their success]].

** [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-267 SCP-267]] is a species of naked mole rat which feeds off tumours. They attack large animals, paralyze them, and drag them into their burrows, where they chew off their limbs and pump them full of carcinogenic venom to feed off the tumors this creates. This means that the larger creature, usually a human, is trapped in a pitch-black, reeking cave, in constant agony as the tumors swelling all over its body are chewed off by tiny unseen monsters that vomit root pulp into its mouth on a regular basis. This can last for ''decades''.
