I’m sitting here watching the TV Show My Strange Addiction, and I have to say, this is some weird stuff.
This episode involves a guy addicted to inflatables and a girl that’s addicted to getting butt injections. Now if those aren’t a couple of strange birds, then I don’t know who is.
Strange Addiction, I Love My Inflatables
This one guy has a strange addiction to inflatables. He’s a 20 year old college student and has a collection of 14 or 15 inflatable floaties. You know, the kind that you put in the swimming pool.
He says his relationship with his pool toys is an intimate one and he loves on them, hugging them and kissing on them. They even showed scenes of him sitting at the dinner table with them and they each had their own plate of food.
No keep in mind these are inanimate objects and they can’t love back or speak to him in any way. But he’s still infatuated with them.
According to him, when he speaks to them, he is able to get the reaction from them that he’s expecting. Where as with real people, sometimes they react differently than he expects, and this throws him off.
To me, this is a serious condition and will do nothing but greatly decrease his everyday people and social skills. Which is pretty much what he discovered to be the case during a visit to a therapist.
But in conclusion, he’s slowly spending less time with his inflatables and more time with real interactive people in social settings.
Strange Addiction, The Girl with the Butt Injections
This girl has a strange addiction of getting injections through the black market. In fact she’s had a total of around 54 injections so far.
She said that she doesn’t go to a doctor to receive these injections, she just goes to a girl whom she met through other people. The woman that does the injections for her takes a needle and draws up some silicone looking substance in the needle and then fires it into her back side.
Come to find out this woman that was giving the black market injections finally was indicted for practicing without a license. And according to reports she was using industrial grade silicone from a hardware store. It wasn’t revealed as to how much she charged to give these injections.
As for the woman that was receiving the injections, she finally went to a doctor to discuss her strange addiction and to see if her health was in any kind of danger. The doctor told her that he found abnormalities in the x-ray. Of course it showed abnormalities!
You could clearly see where the foreign substance was in her back 40. He told her that her strange addiction could lead to massive infection, amputation, stroke or even death if she continued to receive these injections.
Evidently she wasn’t happy with the looks of her body and felt the need to get these injections. She had gone from a size 4 pant to a 10 in no time. But keep in mind all the while her waist size wasn’t changing much, only her butt. So you can imagine how huge it was.
Anyway, I was just awe struck by these strange addictions and wanted to share what I saw with you all. I’ve seen this show a few times before and some episode included a girl addicted to eating baby powder, another that was addicted to drinking nail polish and even eating couch cushions.
These strange addictions are very unusual, but may seem quite normal to the ones afflicted by them. There are many different types of addictions and you can probably see more if you watch my strange addiction online. The mind is a weird thing and sometimes we may see things differently than they really are. That’s why we have therapists, and in these strange addiction cases I think they are very much needed.
