***EXCLUSIVE - NO ONLINE USAGE UNTIL 00:01 WEDNESDAY 17 JULY***  SALT LAKE CITY, UT - MAY 16: Chloe Jennings-White pouring a coffee at her home on May 16, 2013 in Salt Lake City, Utah.  Chloe-Jennings White wears leg braces and uses a wheelchair, even though her legs work fine, and she does not need them. The 58-year-old has chosen to live her life as a disabled person, due to rare condition called Body Integrity Identity Disorder, or BIID. BIID is thought to be caused by a neurological failing, which causes the brain not to recognise a limb or limbs. Chloe, a research scientist, bandaged herself secretly for years, but now she lives openly with her condition, using a wheelchair most of time, apart from when she wants to enjoy her hobbies such as hill-walking and skiing. Chloe admits she skis because she hopes to have an accident to damage both her legs. She sometimes even dreams about having a car crash. Now Chloe, who lives in Salt Lake City, Utah, but is originally from London, is also trying to find a surgeon willing to sever her spine in order to make her paralysed for real.

Κάνει τα πάντα. Τρέχει, περπατά κάνει ακόμα και σκι.. ωστόσο αυτό που επιθυμεί είναι να γίνει παράλυτη! (Vid)

Ο λόγος για την 58χρονη Chloe Jennings-White  από το West Bountiful την Γιούτα των ΗΠΑ, η οποία εδώ και αρκετά χρόνια ονειρεύεται να μείνει παράλυτη.

Για να πραγματοποιήσει το όνειρό της μετακινείται μέσα στο σπίτι της σε σε αναπηρικό αμαξίδιο, φορά ειδικά στηρίγματα στα πόδια και επιμένει ότι τα κάτω άκρα της δεν ανήκουν στο σώμα της.

Η 58χρονη πάσχει από μια σπάνια ασθένεια. Έχει Διαταραχή Σωματικής Ταυτότητας και Αρτιότητας (Biid). Σύμφωνα με όσο υποστηρίζει σε μικρή ηλικία είδε τη θεία της να φέρει τραύματα στα πόδια και να χρησιμοποιεί πατερίτσες έπειτα από ατύχημα, αποτύπωσε την εικόνα στο μυαλό της και θεώρησε ότι έτσι έπρεπε να είναι και η ίδια.

Για να επιτύχει το σχέδιο της, μάλιστα, προκάλεσε ατυχήματα με το ποδήλατο ώστε να υποστεί σοβαρό τραυματισμό στα πόδια, δίχως να τα καταφέρει.

Επιδίδεται ακόμα και σε ακραία αθλήματα, όμως, η ειρωνεία είναι ότι η 58χρονη βγαίνει πάντα αλώβητη.

Ένας γιατρός τη διαβεβαίωσε πως μπορεί μέσω επέμβασης να προχωρήσει στην παράλυση των κάτω άκρων της, ωστόσο το κόστος του χειρουργείου είναι απαγορευτικό για την 58χρονη καθώς αγγίζει τις 25.000 δολάρια.

"Όταν κάνω αυτή την επέμβαση, ξέρω ότι θα είναι η πιο ευτυχισμένη ημέρα της ζωής μου", είπε.
