Woman who can't stop eating her late husbands

38 posts in this topic

We've met the lady who eats dryer cloths, the teddy bear mother and the woman with 24-inch nails. There was even an adult baby who sleeps in a cot and wears diapers.

TLC's reality TV show, My Strange Addiction, takes a look into the less-than-orthodox compulsive habits of some interesting characters.And, true to form, it has delivered some colourful tales in its second series run.

Saving the best for last, the series finale, last night, featured a woman who is so close to the memory of her late husband that she eats his ashes.

26-year-old Casie, who was widowed just two months before filming the show, is unable to stop herself from dipping her finger into her husband's urn of ashes and taking a lick of the grey dust.

She says she first tasted the remains of her husband, Shawn, when she transferred the ashes from a temporary cardboard box into a special memorial urn.

'Some of it spilled out on my hands. I didn't want to just wipe him away, so I just licked it off my fingers.

'And here I am today, almost two months later and I can't stop.'

So, she’s sure it’s her husband only, not a sprinkle of someone else and a bit of coffin too?

Ah, well, everything was sterilized. Never mind.

I actually understand her, I couldn’t just dust my husband off either. But I’m sure he wouldn’t want me to dip my finger into his ashes... wait... I’ll go and ask him.

A-ha. He was touched with the “I couldn’t just dust you off part” but he definitely wouldn’t like me to poke his ashes.

Nah, he wasn’t roasted, but pulverized. It’s not cannibalism if you can’t tell it was human. That’s my definition and yes, I just made it up.

My wife would never do that. Instead she would dig a small hole intended for my ashes to go into. Then she would place my ashes about 50 yards from the hole, get a running start and WHAM!!! She would kick me right in the ash-hole. :D

I often wondered why some people feel the need to broadcast their personal problems on T.V.

for all the world to see. I never understood that. What I think these people should do is

recognize and understand that they have a serious problem and seek therapy. This way people

won't laugh at them and give them funny looks when they walk down the street.

Most likely for a large sum of cash $$$$

I have to agree , for money or not why would you want to tell the world about this ?

I kind of feel sorry for her but on the other hand find it weird .

TiP.

Most of all what Robert said.

I never understood the appeal of keeping a dead person's ashes at all. What's the point?

This woman probably needs some grief counseling.

Would this constitute as cannibalism?

No, this would not constitute Cannibalism, simply because when you are cremated, everything burns away and your bones are what turns to ash.

Yes, it is an odd addiction, but I think it is merely psychological.

I wonder what will manifest psychologically when he's all gone. :wacko:

Yep, definitely counseling. And soon.

She's eating it, not bathing in it.

I feel sorry for her. Strange. Normally, I'd call somebody like this a looney, but I really feel sorry for her. :unsure2:

I wonder whether she knows that the largest part of the ashes is actually from the coffin her hubby got cremated in? And I also wonder like Taut does, what she'd do once the ashes have all been eaten?

I actually think there's a solution for both of her problems...

Did you know that you can actually have a diamond made out of the remains of someone? She could have this done and set it in a ring that she could always wear, that way her hubby's remains would always be with her, and she wouldn't be able to eat the ashes anymore...

It is so sad that this woman has been put on a television programme. Has anyone bothered to get her to a therapist? She needs help immediately.

Edit: I see in the article it does say that she is being given counselling. Let's all hope that she can come to terms with the death of her partner. Otherwise, she will probably want to make friends with that woman who eats soap.
