London: A 26-year-old woman named Casie has raised serious mental health concerns after she revealed that she is addicted to eating her husband's ashes. Her bizarre habit has come as a great shock to her family and friends.
Casie had lost her husband Sean, who she had married in 2009, to an asthma attack. She revealed that she takes along her husband's ashes wherever she goes. Her habit of eating her husband's ashes landed her a feature in TLC's show "My Strange Addiction".
She said, "I take my husband everywhere, to the grocery store, shopping, to the movies, out to eat, anywhere I go he goes."
Casie also shared about how she came to lick her husband's ashes and later developed an addiction to it. She stated, "I didn't want to wipe him off, that's my husband I didn't want to wipe him away so I just licked him off my fingers. And here I am today almost two months later and I can't stop, I'm eating my husband."
She added that she indulges in this strange habit about six to seven times a day.
The family members of Casie are greatly concerned and have suggested her to consult a doctor in order to understand her behaviour.
It has been a year since the episode featuring her story was aired on TLC. However, the story has once again resurfaced on social media.
