Shell shock is a kind of mental sickness that will cause strange things like fatigue, depression and in some severe cases hallucinations. This is common with war vets, if you are constantly on an adrenaline rush, it will start to deplete your liver of its glucose and ware your muscles(causing the short term effect of fatigue). In superhuman modes your synapses fire faster, probably causing mental damage (depression and hallucinations)
