Woman who cant stop eating husbands ashes says they taste of rotten eggs
A woman says she feels "ashamed" and "disgusted" because she can't stop eating her dead husband's ashes and fears there will soon be none left.
Casie, 26, from Tennessee, US, tragically became a widow when her husband Sean died from an asthma attack and her "world stopped turning".
Speaking on TLC's My Strange Addiction, Casie explains after Sean's death she began carrying his ashes with her everywhere she went as a source of comfort.
"I take my husband everywhere, to the grocery store, shopping, to the movies, out to eat, anywhere I go he goes," she says.
"Every time I go to the grocery store I buy the food that he likes, when I cook I buy the food that he likes, I don’t eat it but I cook for him."
Casie first tasted Sean's ashes after some spilled out and she didn't want to throw them away.
She says: "I didn’t want to wipe him off, that’s my husband I didn’t want to wipe him away so I just licked him off my fingers.
"And here I am today almost two months later and I can’t stop, I’m eating my husband."
Casie now has conflicted feelings of disgust mixed with her grief and wants to stop eating Sean's ashes so she doesn't "lose him again".

She says: "When I open up the urn I get a sense of happiness, it’s like an adrenaline rush for me and the more I eat the more excited I get until I realise there’s not a lot left.
"Then a few minutes later I feel horrible because I did it.
"It makes me feel embarrassed, ashamed, disgusted with myself, confused, crazy – you gotta be a really sick person to eat someone’s ashes."
The grieving widow has eaten 1lb (roughly half a kilogram) of her husband's ashes which originally weighed 6lb.
As the documentary notes, dead bodies that are embalmed contain toxic chemicals that can cause psychosis if consumed.
Casie ended up being admitted to a psychiatric hospital to help her come to terms with her husband's untimely death and she was able to open up to friends and family about eating his ashes.
