A Cambridge University educated research scientist is so desperate to live the life of a wheelchair-bound person she is prepared to pay a doctor help her become disabled.
Chloe, 58, from Salt Lake City, Utah, suffers from a rare condition called Body Integrity Identity Disorder, or BIID.
Sufferers do not accept one of their own limb or limbs and seek to amputate them or become paraplegic.
Chloe spends most of her time in a wheelchair, but has to get out for various household tasks and walk down the steps to her car.
'I can't afford to convert my home for disabled access so I just use the chair as much as I can,' she said.
She fantasises about having a car crash without hurting anyone else just so she can damage her own legs.
Chloe believes it is important to raise awareness about the condition and now writes for the BIID support group Transabled.
