A WOMAN is so desperate to be disabled she is willing to undergo a $25,000 operation so she can live the rest of her life permanently in a wheelchair.

London-born Chloe Jennings-White uses a wheelchair and lives as if she is a paraplegic despite being completely able-bodied and a passionate skier.

The 58-year-old, who now lives in the US with her wife Danielle, said she had wanted to be disabled for as long as she could remember.

But it was only around five years ago that her unusual condition made sense when she was diagnosed with Body Integrity Identity Disorder.

The rare psychological condition makes sufferers feel they want to be disabled.

wat.
 
This is really quite sad.

I watched a video about a guy who didn't want his legs and did everything he could to get rid of them. Reminds me of that.
 
This reminds me of the woman who cut off her own legs.
And then there's people who were upset because they wanted usable legs and everyone was upset. And her reason for cutting off her own legs was, she just "didn't like them"

I could never do that to myself. I love my legs and my hands and everything too much. I feel bad for people like this who have these feelings where they do not want to have hands or arms or legs. Or they wish to be disabled. It is sad.
 
Oh dear...I bet there's a lot of disabled people angry/upset over this.

I suppose what she does with her own body is up to her, but it's quite a waste if she chooses to go ahead with it.
 
I know people who won't like this story and may get upset by this this story, but she has as a disorder. It's not in the right state of mind to not want to do this.
I feel so sorry for her, and the hate she'll get from this which she can't control.

She can't control it? She went to the media about it. If she had stayed quiet, nobody would know. She brought it on herself and any hate she gets is justified.

She's an "avid skier". I wonder how she'll manage with a severed spinal cord.
 
On Tumblr, there are many people like that, only less extreme. They call themselves "transabled" and all they do is whine about how hard it is to be able-bodied when they know deep inside that they are supposed to be disabled. I have very little sympathy for them.
I have mixed feelings on people who cut off their own legs or something. That must already be some kind of mental issue. They should seek psychological help.
 
I don't care what condition you have that makes you want to get rid of your body parts, accept that all it is for you is a want rather than making your life out as an able human as hell. Moaning about how hard life is with an able body is actually ridiculous because it isn't *hard* at all unless you have a serious problem with responsibility. Perhaps emotionally it doesn't feel right for you, I get that, but able bodied people have opportunities etc. What are they possibly missing out on? Not being able to look after themselves? Not being able to walk? To run? To have a good time?

Oh you poor thing.

Okay, if the condition is truly making them feel that way, I feel sorry for them. However, making into into a little cliquey club and moaning about the hardships of ability is just silly. It's the condition that's the problem, not being able bodied.
