This one is a doozy.
Jewel Shuping blinded herself nine years ago, and believe it or not, it was completely intentional!
Why? Because the North Carolina native felt she was always meant to live her life as a disabled person! And now she’s finally gone public with her story.
Shuping, now 30, says that she was so obsessed with becoming blind at age 21, that she enlisted the help of a psychologist to pour drain cleaner in her eyes and waited to seek medical attention, so that the process could take place.
And believe it or not, Shuping isn’t the only person with this condition!
Body Integrity Identity Disorder (BIID) is a rare psychological disorder in which perfectly healthy people seek ways they can intentionally become disabled, because they believe that they should have been disabled from birth.
Many fantasize about being disabled for years and years, and some, like Shuping, even act on it. This had led in recent months to the coining of the new term “transabled” to describe these people who identify as disabled.
