He pretends to be blind for 28 years: "I was tired of meeting people and stop and say goodbye" How do you pretend to be blind for 28 years? It seems incredible but this is the story of Carmen Jimenéz. A 57-year-old from Madrid, who assembled all this staging for an apparently absurd reason: "I was tired of meeting people on the street and stop and say goodbye".
After a serious eye injury, which occurred just 28 years ago, Jimenéz told everyone, including her family, that she was blind. "I have never been a very sociable person and pretending to be blind has allowed me to avoid many social responsibilities," said the woman.
The 57-year-old recently revealed that, in reality, in all these years her vision was perfect, leaving his family in a state of shock, although someone had always suspected that there were some things that didn't add up: the husband in fact emphasized that the woman managed to wear make-up perfectly and to some family it seemed that, out of the corner of her eye, sometimes she looked TV.
The revelation of her fake blindness will now cost her dearly: in fact, after her accident, Jimenéz has received numerous financial aid for her handicap, and will now face numerous legal problems. The news was reported by Hay Noticia, but there are those who claim that in reality the woman never existed and that the news has no foundation.
