|Entertainment / Sad Story: Woman Commits Suicide Due To Too Much self-service (WATCH) by LT_Versati(m): 10:07pm On Dec 06, 2012|
A woman who suffered from a horrible condition where she had constant, uncontrollable physical urges has committed suicide after years of battling her affliction.
39 year old Gretchen Molannen, seen below wearing the gas mask, was found dead in her home in Spring Hill, Florida from an apparent suicide.
She suffered from persistent Core arousal disorder (PGAD) for more than a decade and a half.
Persistent Core arousal disorder is a fairly recent phenomenon, first described in medical literature in 2001.
Sufferers describe symptoms as only physical arousal. Women who have the disorder say that they experience symptoms that are intense and incredibly uncomfortable.
Some women may temporarily lessen the symptoms by self-servicing for hours and reaching heavenly feeling. Treatment ranges from psychotherapy to various medications.
The Tampa Bay Times did a profile on Ms. Molannen only a week before, speaking to her about her debilitating disorder. “I had such a different life before this thing took over,” she said in November. Ms. Molannen explained that she began feeling the sensation when she was 23, describing that it was like a switch she couldn’t turn off.
One of the only forms of relief came from self-servicing for hours on end, something that Ms. Molannen, a Lutheran, found as a point of shame. She had a boyfriend, who emailed the Times after her original story was published, saying the article “won’t help her now” because she had killed herself.
They Were Intimate around 4 times a year, the Times said, because it caused Ms. Molannen hours of agony afterward. Ms. Molannen told the Tampa Bay Times that because of her condition, she was unable to hold down any full-time employment. She tried to file for disability twice, and was twice denied.
Because of this, the boyfriend paid her taxes so she could keep her parents’ house. Speaking to the Tampa Bay Times only a week ago, Ms. Molannen said that without medication, she once had 50 uncontrolled heavenly feelings in a row.
“It made me think I was going to die,” she told the newspaper. According to the Journal of Sex and Marriage Therapy, any number of events or medications can trigger the disorder, including going off antidepressants, starting menopause, and even a bad fall.
It is unclear how many women suffer from the disease, but experts estimate it to be in the thousands.
Our hearts go out to her and her family. Here she is in her own words.

|Entertainment / Nigerian Basketball Player Shot Dead ‘after Trying To Rob A Home In Texas by LT_Versati(m): 8:02am On Dec 01, 2012|
29 year old Chinedu Onyeuku, a former D’Tigers of Nigeria player, was shot dead in an alleged botched burglary in a home in Texas on November 21.
Police say Chinedu, who played for the Nigerian team that qualified for this year’s Olympic Games in London, was trying to break into a home on Rio Grande Street in Plano, Texas with an accomplice when he was shot dead by the home owner.
Chinedu and another individual allegedly entered the house by breaking the glass patio door. The home owner shot Chinedu, killing him instantly, while his accomplice escaped.
No one inside the home was injured in the burglary. Upon their arrival, EMT workers pronounced him dead at the scene. It is unclear why Onyeuku and his companion were trying to burglarize the residence.
The Nigeria Basketball Federation posted a statement saying that the 29-year-old athlete played basketball for the team that qualified for the London 2012 Olympics. However, Onyeuku was not on the Olympic roster and did not actually compete.
The statement reads: ‘His passion for playing with D’Tigers was deep-seated and he will be greatly missed. The federation joins his family and team mates to mourn a departed son, father, husband and great patriot.'
According to online sports records, Onyeuku was born in the Nigerian capital of Lagos in 1983. He moved to the United States at age six. He played college basketball at Illinois State University and then went semi-pro for awhile, playing for the Arlington Bulldogs, in the American Basketball Association.
In 2009, he was invited to play for the D’Tigers, a national squad in Nigeria.
It also said that Onyeuku lived in Omaha, Nebraska.

Yung L has been singing for a while now, top artist in Jos, he recently moved to Lagos to pursue his passion for music. He manages to seduce new listeners to his lyrical play on words. He even manages to play with his lips at the end of this song, when you hear the flute, he is actually blowing through his lips.
Popular for being one of Iceprince’s bredren – the mob you see come through clubs – Yung L is a dynamic singer, with a new take on the Nigerian/African sound.
