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.
