Video about wannabee amputee

I've posted before about body integrity identity disorder, a condition in which an individual has an overwhelming desire to have a limb amputated. ABC Catalyst posted a fascinating short documentary about an man who purposefully destroyed his leg with dry ice so that a physician would have no choice but to cut it off. "The next time I woke up, it was absolute ecstasy," he says. "The leg that I wanted to get rid of for all those years was reduced to a little bandaged stump." Catalyst: Body Identity (via Mind Hacks)
