Seems this has already been discussed to a degree in other threads but I thought I'd bring it up. Also hope its in the right place and mods feel free to move it as appropriate!
Body Identity Integrity Disorder Makes Patients Want to Be Disabled - ABC News
There is also a UK daily (hate) mail article on the subject, where a guy got a free wheelchair and everything on the NHS over it, however I was unable to find the link.
For some people, especially those who have an overwhelming desire to actually be incontinent, its my theory that our ab/dl tendencies may be an obscure and less severe variation of this condition.
If so I'm thinking that we might have a case for free padding via the NHS, possibly mental health services.
Would be grateful for peoples thoughts, and is there a Doctor or a Psychologist in residence who might be able to give an opinion on my theory?
