In a bizarre incident, Michigan police are claiming that a 41-year old woman shot herself so that she can get treatment for her chronic painful condition in the shoulder.
Kathy Myers, an unemployed 41-year old, injured herself in the shoulder when playing with dogs. However since she had no health insurance, meeting with a specialist would have proven very expensive.
Unable to bear the constant pain, she shot herself in the shoulder in the hope that a hospital will cure her earlier condition along with fixing her shoulder. However it proved to be all for nothing as she was sent home just after a few hours with the hospital treating her gunshot wound.
Claiming that she was no suicide risk, Myers said that she will not be taking the same route and instead will look for a specialist who will be willing to accept a payment plan that would be affordable.
