[Ed. – If a psychologist actually helped her with this, that individual needs to be sanctioned within an inch of his or her life.]
Jewel has Body Integrity Identity Disorder (BIID), a condition in which able-bodied people believe they are meant to be disabled.
Her need to lose her sight was so strong that in 2006 she decided to blind herself – by having a sympathetic psychologist pour DRAIN CLEANER into her eyes. …
Determined to make her dream a reality, Jewel found a psychologist willing to help her become blind – an act which she compares to a deaf person wanting to get a cochlear implant.
The psychologist put in numbing eyedrops – acquired by Jewel during a special visit to Canada – and then a couple of drops of drain cleaner in each eye.
Jewel said: “It hurt, let me tell you. My eyes were screaming and I had some drain cleaner going down my cheek burning my skin.
“But all I could think was ‘I am going blind, it is going to be okay.”
Despite the hospital’s attempts to save her vision – against her wishes – they were permanently damaged, although it took around half a year for the damage to take affect.
