Jewel Shuping, a 30-year-old from North Carolina USA has dreamt of being blind since she was a child. She has been able to fufill this great desire through the help of an (unknown) psychologist who agreed to have drain cleaner poured into her eyes in order to fully blind her.
After putting in numbing eyedrops,the psychologist added a couple of drops of drain cleaner in her eyes.
Jewel’s believes that she was supposed to have been born blind. Her Fiance is also blind,although he is blind due to Natural causes.
Though she did not immediately go blind after the help of the Psychologist, her vision did eventually deteriorate till she completely lost her vision.
At first she told her family that her blindness has been the result of an accident, family members found out the truth in the long run which led to her mother and her sister to cutting contact with her.
Jewel has been diagnosed by experts with a condition called Body Integrity Identity Disorder (BIID).
Body Integrity Identity Disorder (BIID) is a disorder when the person believes that they are meant to be disabled.
According to Daily mail,she reported said;
“My mother would find me walking in the halls at night, when I was three or four years old,” she said. “By the time I was six I remember that thinking about being blind made me feel comfortable.”
She further stated that as a child, she would spend hours staring at the sun after her mother informed her that doing so would damage her eyes. Her fascination with the disability continued until she reached adulthood, with her getting a cane when she turned 18 and becoming fully fluent in Braille by the time she was 20, reports The Mirror.
This is one seriously determined person I must say.
My only question is this ,why would any one do this? Or want this?
