Woman With A Psychological Disorder Wants To Become Permanently Paralysed

permanently

Have you heard of the term ‘transabled’? It refers to when a person has the desire to have a different body configuration, and not a different gender. This is exactly what this woman refers to when she claims that she is a ‘transabled’ woman. One 61-year-old chemist from Salt Lake City, Utah, is a perfectly healthy woman who has dedicated her life to become disabled. Chloe Jennings-White is a perfectly normal, active woman with a perfect set of functioning limbs. However, she is now looking for a doctor who can perform an extremely dangerous medical procedure to make her permanently paralytic.

Here’s her story.

She does not need a wheelchair, but she likes being in it.

Using leg braces that lock her knees, she identifies herself as a transabled. However, whenever she needs to ascend stairs, she steps out of her wheelchair and uses her feet to walk up. Also, she is a passionate ski rider and hiker. Hiking and skiing don’t make her happy enough. Being a paraplegic is what truly makes her happy from within.

“When she was nine, White climbed her bike and rode it off a tall wooden stage she had set up in a local park, with the sole intention of crashing and breaking her back,” Oddity Central reported.

The biking accident wasn’t tragic for her, as she landed on her neck and not her back, as she had planned.

Since she was little, she had always had this desire. Soon after her biking accident, Chloe’s aunt became a paraplegic, and Chloe found herself desiring the condition even more.

In 2008, doctors diagnosed Chloe with BIID or Body Integrity Identity Disorder, referred to as ‘being transabled’. This rare psychological disorder leads to patients believing thwey would be happier if they were a paraplegic or amputee. Living with a disability becomes the default state of mind of patients suffering from the disorder.

Chloe studied at Cambridge University and worked at the Stanford Research Institute. At that time, her BIID got out of control. She began to have fantasies of becoming paralyzed. That’s not all. She even began dreaming of the times when she tried to almost kill herself by riding straight into the wall.

That’s how she started to pretend to be a paraplegic when no one was around. She did this by using wood planks to the back of her legs to render her immobile.

In order to prevent further damage, the doctors approved of her using a wheelchair. Being in a wheelchair helped her control her innate need to harm herself dangerously, but the urges to become paraplegic haven’t left her mind.

Chloe tried to get a procedure done that would paralyze her, for real. However, doctors stated that no doctor would want to do that.

For now, the desire lives deep within her mind and she uses her wheelchair as her primary mode of transportation.
