I’ve blogged about the “transabled,” people who feel that they should have been born into a body that is disabled. After the jump is a story about a woman who felt that the way she “was supposed to be born” was to be blind. So the psychologist working with her blinded her. He “gave her eye-numbing drops before sprinkling a few droplets of drain cleaner into each pupil.”From I poured drain cleaner in my eyes to blind myself | New York Post:

Jewel Shuping, 30, was so desperate to be blind that she poured draining cleaner in her baby blues to wipe out her eyesight — and she couldn’t be happier.
