The TLC show My Strange Addiction has featured a wide variety of addictions like compulsive scab picking, wearing fur suits and eating toilet paper. But their episode featuring a widow named Casie of Fayetteville, Tennessee might be the most hard to believe yet.
26-year old Casie's husband Shawn, died from a severe asthma attack just a couple of months before the episode was taped. The addiction initially started with Casie literally carrying her husband's ashes everywhere she went. That soon escalated into her actually eating his ashes.
"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," she said "And here I am today, almost two months later and I can't stop."
With no cure in sight Casie's devotion to her husband, which includes cooking him meals and sleeping with his urn, doesn't appear to be stopping anytime soon.
"Some people laugh, they think I'm playing. But I'm serious - I mean that's my husband."
