1 Eating A Deceased Person
When a loved one requests to be cremated, it’s common for the people closest to the deceased to keep the ashes. Casie’s husband passed away and was cremated, and naturally, she wanted to take the ashes home. What is not natural is the fact that she started eating her husband’s remains! Initially, Carie was carrying the urn with her everywhere, and her family was getting concerned. Then, they found out she was eating her husband’s ashes, which means she has truly taken her grief to a new level. Aside from the fact that therapy or counseling is necessary in order to address the emotional issues that are present, Carie may need to see a doctor to find out if the ashes are negatively affecting her digestive system.
