Rant: Skins: Chris`s Illness

Spoiler Warning : If you haven't watched Skins Season 2 Episode 8 don't continue reading.

The post you are reading was posted after episode 8. In episode 9 everything was confirmed. You can find updated details here @ an UPDATED POST: Chris's Illness Confirmed.

We're receiving a few emails from savy viewer's of E4's series Skins. All attempting to make sense of the turn of events in the last episode where Chris's illness was revealed. Everyone is asking "What condition did Chris have?" heres our take on it:

The only clues that we are given during the episode is that it is a hereditary illness, that his brother died from the same illness, he has to undergo an operation because there is a blood clot in his brain and they are keeping him in a drug induced coma to prevent brain damage. It was also revealed that he has been taking pills in an effort to deal with the sickness.

With these in mind there are a few conditions in which Chris could be suffering. The most likely is Hereditary Thrombphilia which matches the symptoms and drugs are offer used to thin the blood to prevent clotting.

We might be given more details next episode.
