So, what if you stick it in her pooper? Does she pretend not to notice?

Not bad but the one I like is "split personality disorder" as most people know it. Within the same body, one may be paralyzed, another may be a diabetic and the original personality perfectly healthy.

There are people who desparately want to be amputees, too. I don't get it.

I wish to be stronger, hotter, and have George Clooney on speed dial.

I don't know who is crazier, but at least I don't have to go looking for a ramp to go upstairs.

meat0918: I thought this was called "Münchausen syndrome"?


It looks like there's actual neurology behind this, which makes sense since most people have urges to stop themselves from doing anything stupid--and I've heard of this disorder, it showed up in my psych textbooks. Basically, the brain thinks limbs are foreign objects and goes 'WTF get rid of this shiat! I'm supposed to be limbless here!'.

However, it really looks like she's also got psychological issues from her aunt's problems, so she's got a mix.

/Glad she's getting help
//This is fascinating as hell.

I want to introduce her to the football player from Notre Dame. It would blow his mind to have a disabled girlfriend who's not disabled.

"It was at that point that I realised I was just as likely to break my neck as I was to break my back and end up quadriplegic - totally paralysed, which I did not want," she says.

Because wanting to be quadriplegic would just be CRAZY.

As someone who's gone down on a paraplegic, rest assured that not all of them feel nothing below the waist.

A few centuries back, we realized that you can employ scientific methods to study things, allowing professionals to differentiate various kinds of disorders, some even of the psychological variety.

You'll also be pleased to know that the cold you caught a while back wasn't the result of miasma affecting your humors, or the "Evil Eye" you got from some other Farker in another thread.

As Chloe got older she realised her desires were vastly different to those of her friends, so she decided to keep it a secret even from her parents Harold, who was a psychotherapist, and Marjorie, a secretary, who have both since died.

I'm sure this has nothing to do with her being screwed up.

On a different note, she has nice legs. The kind of legs that I would chop off, preserve with plastination, and hang up on the walls of my bunker. She just needs to call me and I'm going.

This is the same disorder middle-aged men suffer from. You know, with the bald spot, the gut, the sagging skin, jowls and extra chins but is convinced he's in better shape than at 20....

She's got a semi-hot girlfriend, though.

Except that's not what this is. Sometimes crazy just needs an outlet - had her childhood drama involved yellow crayons shoved up the ear, that's what she'd be doing. What the fetish (for lack of a better word) itself is, is irrelevant - her real "condition" is quite common. She does self-harm in a manner related to a traumatic event - to give it a special label based on the specific type of self-harm is more than just idiotic, it is intellectually dishonest.

So why don't we let people like this sever their spinal cords? We let TGs mutilate their genitals.

How is this even allowed? I can see her being a research subject in psychiatry but this is like letting the inmates run the asylum. How can she do objective research in psychiatry when her brain is clearly miswired? It seems unethical for her to work in the field.

Imagine that.

thisiszombocom: what could you possibly have done to yourself to need a cast like that?


A friends daughter broke her femur and ended up rigged into that same sort of cast.

Which only goes to show that Psycho always gets a relationship. Be normal and people avoid you like the plague.

"I've been told that if I continue to do both activities then I'm at high risk of becoming paraplegic - hence my motivation to keep doing them."

As one who has spent 50 of my 51 years on this planet in a wheelchair because of my fugged up spine, I just......I can't comprehend.

I am seriously at a loss for words.
