As a socially anxious person with a healthy distaste for humankind, I’ve occasionally gone the extra mile to avoid interactions with other people. I’ve taken fake phone calls, I’ve pretended to be listening to music, and once when I was around 13, I spiked myself with laxatives to get out of a social gathering. Tragically, they did not take effect until I had already arrived at the destination, but I like to think of myself as having an above-average ability to parachute out of social obligations.
As adept as I am at evading other people, I’m not sure I could hold a candle to the exploits of Carmen Jiménez, who was reported to have spent the last 28 years managing a serious eye injury that left her completely blind. In a shocking twist that not even her family saw coming, Carmen has revealed that she was faking it for the best part of three decades, so strong was her disdain for other people.
