|Additional Rain to Exacerbate Flooding in South Carolina|
For most people, going blind is their worst nightmare, but for this North Carolina woman it was a dream come true.
Jewel Shuping, 30, was so desperate to be blind that she had draining cleaner poured in her baby blues to wipe out her eyesight -- and she couldn't be happier.
She suffers from an illness called body integrity identity disorder (BIID) -- a disease that causes able-bodied people to strongly desire a disability.
"I really feel this is the way I was supposed to be born, that I should have been blind from birth," Shuping told Barcroft Media.
In a YouTube video Shuping said, "I don't think I'm crazy, I think I have a disorder."

Lives and property will continue to be threatened in and around South Carolina through Monday as additional torrential rain pours down, further worsening already major to catastrophic flooding.
