Can you imagine feeling like an arm or leg is not your own or daydreaming about being blind? Some people are becoming disabled by choice and calling themselves “transabled.”
Body integrity identity disorder (BIID) is a rare psychological condition that makes healthy individuals feel like they’re supposed to be disabled. There is no known cause of the disorder and, as of now, the only treatment is therapy.
Many with BIID suffer in silence, but others take matters into their own hands. Some even go as far as to injure and disable themselves on purpose.
