For most of us, the thought of losing our legs is a nightmare. For Chloe Jennings-White, losing all feeling in her legs is something she has dreamed of since she was four years old. Shockingly, a doctor has agreed to perform a $25,000 procedure that would sever her spinal cord and leave her paralyzed. Yes, you read that correctly.

The 58-year-old research scientist — who, by the way, has graduated from Cambridge University — suffers from Body Integrity Identity Disorder, or BIID. This rare condition leads people to mentally reject one or more of their limbs, even going as far as amputating them if given the choice. The exact cause of BIID is unknown and there is no cure.

While Jennings-White has been the victim of many insults and unkind comments, she insists that she is just misunderstood. She first started feeling like her legs were not for her when she saw her aunt in leg braces at an early age. At age 9, she purposefully rode her bicycle off a four-foot ledge to stop her legs from working.

Today, she uses a wheelchair and leg braces whenever possible. She skis often, going at high speeds hoping to break or injure her legs. The only thing stopping her from getting the aforementioned procedure is a lack of funds.

I bet you want to see the images of this insane lady. Here’s a video with more information:

    For $5, I’ll push you in front of a bus. You can keep the rest of the $24,995.

    Give me two hours of hitting that from the back and I guarantee she won’t be able to feel her legs….

    They should lock him up in a psych ward and never let out. Here’s more facts on this whackjob. http://gendertrender.wordpress.com/2012/02/01/national-geographic-taboo-fake-paraplegic-chloe-jennings-white/

    BIID is considered taboo. She needs psychiatric help. If the legs were cut, she might regret it one day. While other disabled people are dying to live normally having to use both of their feet so they can be more productive, this able-bodied woman just wanted to have her limbs thrown away. I am 100% sure there are thousands of people out there who are willing to swap places with her!

    God has given you a body that is complete and 100% in perfect condition. Use it and don’t waste that gift. Thousands of people are dying to have a good pair of legs and there you are wanting to lose one of them. This is crap.

    And after she’s immobilized she would wish she had the ability to walk again. I hope she realizes this before it’s too late
