According to some researches, addiction takes in a lot of forms however none are as specific as this 27 year old man’s obsession. He has been obsessed with the act of wearing casts since he broke his arm when he is 12 years of age. Apart from this, he does not wait for his bones to break. Even though he is perfectly healthy, he has been in and out of casts for over 15 years and Kevin does not know how to stop. The obsession of Kevin may have started when he was six or seven years old. During this time, he wrapped his hands and feet up with bathroom paper to look like a mummy.
According to Kevin, he likes the feeling of casts since they are pretty snug on his body. Aside from this, he feels secure and comfortable under the plaster. It is not the physical feeling that he truly enjoys since he also likes the sympathy and full attention he receives from other people especially women. The plaster of Kevin does not come cheap since he has spent almost 50,000 dollars on his strange hobby. It is not just casts he purchases; sometimes, Kevin accessorizes his fake injuries with crutches and wheelchair.
On the other hand, there are some individuals who truly understands the obsession and addiction of Kevin with casts and plaster however the question is who are the enablers signing all these plasters and casts for Kevin? Furthermore, there are also some people who are wondering what medical professionals are giving Kevin the plasters and casts without any valid reason. Is that even allowed?
