You just see how totally insane and sick some people are out there. I watched this program about mentally "fine" people, who have their lower leg, both legs amputated just out of the matter of fact, that the legs are there. Well, they use this stupid reasoning, that they find their legs are not a part of them, so they want them off.
One women wanted both legs off, fairly high, because she was fascinated by the sight of an amputee, when she was very small. So she started training every day, how life would be in a wheelchair and what she would be limited in doing, when she has them off. (ok, this makes so much sense). When the surgeons refused to carry out the operation, she planned on fulfilling out her wish herself, by putting her legs on the railroad tracks.( if she did it, I don't know)
Why would any one want lo live the life as an amputee, it just sounds so sick.

*shudder* I am not easily creeped out, but this is downright bizarre. I wonder if the psychiatric profession has a clinical name for wannabe amputees.

There was a time when I was young I thought being in a wheelchair all the time would be cool, and that amputation would be the way to achieve that. But my opinion on that has changed!!

Anyone who has this bizarre wish to have limbs amputated should meet my younger sister (aged 25) and ask her what it's like to live without legs!

My sister had meningococcal meningitis as a baby and spent her first 3 years at James W. Riley Hospital for Children, Indianapolis, IN, fighting for her life. Gangrene set in all over her body, destroying most of her skin and face. Doctors finally had to amputate both her legs above the knee, along with some fingers on her right hand, as well as removing most of her skin and grafting new skin on. Her mother gave her up for adoption, and she was adopted at age 3 by our large family (of almost 10 kids at the time; at that time I was the youngest, at age 8, and had been adopted at age 3).

She tried artificial legs for years, but they wore at her stumps, so she now gets around totally by wheelchair. She drives a modified truck (with hand controls and a wheelchair box on top of the vehicle). However, she has had the courage and determination to get her way and get around! She's now in college and wants to work someday with children in a children's hospital.

It's not easy for her! This was definitely not her choice.

Yes, this is true. Just google for "amputee wannabe" or "devotee", that pretty much sums it up. Mostly these people are sexually attacted by people with amputations and/or want to have limbs amputated for the same reason. There are even people looking at fake amputee pictures where limbs have been "photoshopped out"...

I'm not sure if the exact reason behind this is fully understood, but it's one of the weird things that exist. I'd dare calling it some sort of a "fetish"... until it doesn't get unhealthy, that is (for example when some of them really get a leg amputated etc).

And if that weren't enough, have a look 'round the net for guys who castrate themselves or become eunichs (not transsexuals).

(Working with psychatric hospitals in my previous life was just soooo interesting...)

That's right up there (or down there) with people who want to be cannibalized. Remember the winner from Berlin who sautéed his cock in oil and garlic and enjoyed it with the fellow who would eventually eat him? This happened within the last 3 years. I swear I'm not making this up. I read about him in the Globe & Mail.

Baz remembers first seeing an amputee when he was a 4-year old boy in Liverpool.


Exactly. For some reason those people get attracted by amputees always very early in life, like before they are six years old. I guess they must be born with that sickness, because they discover it so early.

Michael Alig (New York club kid that went to the big house after killing someone) wanted his cut off as a fashion statement.

That was some scary shit he was doing at the time, heroin was just part of the cocktail.

There is a mental condition too where healthy people want amputations as they become convinced that they cannot live with the limb in question attached to them. I saw one of those Discovery night time shows about it, and in one case they really did have to amputate as the patient was seriously self-harming.

It takes all sorts to make a world.
