          Woman Who Says She Chose To Blind Herself – Dr. Travis Stork Weighs In


          July 1, 2016

          Amber, aka “Jewel,” Shuping made international headlines when she intentionally made herself blind by putting drain cleaner into her eyes. The 30-year-old says that ever since she was a little girl, she dreamed of being blind, claiming to live with Body Integrity Identity Disorder, a disorder which causes an otherwise healthy person to feel that he or she is meant to be disabled.
