woman blinded herself because she dreamed of being blind

North Carolina resident Jewel Shuping has always dreamed of being blind, she became obsessed with her at the age of 21.

Shuping claims that she had a psychologist pour drain cleaner in her eyes, losing her eyesight over time and now she is completely blind.

"I really feel this is the way I was supposed to be born, that I should have been blind from birth,"

"It hurt, let me tell you. My eyes were screaming and I had some drain cleaner going down my cheek burning my skin. All I could think was, 'I am going blind, it is going to be okay.'I was so happy, I felt that this was who I was supposed to be."

As a teen, Shuping owned a white cane and by the age of 20 she was fluent in Braille.

According to People, Shuping has Body Integrity Identity Disorder (BIID), it is a rare condition where people believe that they are supposed to be disabled.
