In an illness straight out of a science fiction story, Calvino Inman cries blood up to three times a day. His doctors as of yet cannot figure out why it's happening, but Inman offers this description:

Sometimes, I can feel it coming up, like a tear. I feel my eyes watering. Sometimes, it will burn as it comes out. I've been called possessed by almost all of my friends. I guess I'm used to it now. At first, it kind of hurt my feelings

The teen's mother says Inman has had MRIs, CAT scans and other diagnostics but to no avail.
