Jewel has Body Integrity Identity Disorder (BIID), a condition in which able-bodied people believe they are meant to be disabled.
Her need to lose her sight was so strong that in 2006 she decided to blind herself – by having a sympathetic psychologist pour DRAIN CLEANER into her eyes.
According to Jewel, her fascination with blindness began early in childhood.
“When I was young my mother would find me walking in the halls at night, when I was three or four years old.By the time I was six I remember that thinking about being blind made me feel comfortable.”
