Talk about having been dealt a shit hand. Not only was Peng Jie, a girl from Leshan City, Qianwei County of Sichuan Province in China born into a poor family, she was also born paralyzed from waist down. She’s never known what it’s like to run around with other children, chasing balls, playing games – all she could do was sit and look at them playing. Her whole life – stuck on a her bamboo chair with her loneliness as her sole companion…
Her parents are poor pheasants with no money. They couldn’t afford to take little Peng Jie to a doctor to see if someone could figure out what exactly was wrong with her and whether there was anything anyone could do to fix her.
As time progressed – whether from further development of the disease which kept her paralyzed, or from constant sitting, or perhaps as a result of something else yet, her legs started to rot. Foul smelling purulence mixed with dirty looking blood started to ooze from expanding holes in her thighs. If her life had started with a shit hand, now the shit took over much more. When it rains, it pours.
Week after week, the disease kept infecting more and more of the atrophied tissue over Peng Jie’s thighs and ass. Shame really, because other than the nasty rot, her ass looks perfectly tappable. The villagers also say that “her mouth is sweet” because she only says kind and compassionate things and is also exceptionally smart.
These photos were taken in 2009. I don’t know how Peng Jie is doing now or whether she’s even still alive. She reminds me of the Sri Lankan woman who had half of her face eaten by the flesh eating bacteria, only Peng Jie’s loss of tissue to whatever is chewing her off is much more significant. So pretty but so fucked over by the powers she can’t control. Life’s not fair:
