A woman who refused to leave her toilet for two-and-a-half years has spoken about why she refused to leave.
Mee Yan Leong sat down on the bowl in her bathroom on March 25, 2009 and for the next 902 days, that is where she decided to eat and sleep.
The 58-year-old claimed she 'felt a force holding me down' and said she did not understand why she felt compelled to stay in the tiled bathroom.
She was completely naked throughout the ordeal and only showered a total of 18 times, according to her husband Kian Ann Ong.
He said those were the only times she left the toilet bowl and would imagine that if she left people would throw stones at her or spray her with water.
Mr Ong said he was the only person who had contact with his wife and she even refused to speak with their 27-year-old son Jiing Yih.
Eventually Mr Ong decided to seek help and called the emergency services who took her to hospital near their home in Singapore.
'They had to come into my flat, hold her down, then wrap her in a towel before using a wheelchair to take her to the hospital,' said Mr Ong.
He explained that whenever he tried to remove his wife from the bathroom, she would refuse and tell him that something was holding her back.more
