I Made Myself Blind: Living With BIID

FOR most people becoming blind would be a living nightmare - but for Jewel Shuping it was the fulfilment of a lifelong dream. Jewel, 30, from North Carolina, USA, 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. Videographer / Director: Ruaridh ConnellanProducer: Tom Midlane, Nick JohnsonEditor: Sonia Estal, Ian PhillipsAuteur: BarcroftTVTags: amazing Barcroft Media BDV2468 BIID blinded blinding Body integrity identity disorder care deteriorate disorder doctors eyeballs eyes footage help incredible look medical mental mental health psychologists rescue self blind sight video news Gepost: 01 oktober 2015Beoordeling: Stemmen: ]]>
