A woman is considering having both her legs removed as she suffers from something called 'body identity integrity disorder' (BIID).

She has already had one cut off at a hospital after she performed a DIY deep-freeze operation on it to render it useless.

I've heard of many people who deliberately 'self harm', but this seems the most macabre :eek:

Not a lot really, I feel sorry for anyone who feels uncomfortable with their body but to go to such extremes seems a bit 'off the wall' but you know what they say it takes all sorts to make the world go round:eek:
