902 days. Two-and-half-years. No matter how you cut it, that's a really long time to sit on the toilet.
But that's just what Chinese housewife Mee Yan Leong has done, finally leaving the lavatory in her Singapore home after remaining 'stuck' there, naked, since 25 March 2009, reports The Daily Mail.
Claiming that she "felt a force holding me down", Leong only spoke to her husband, Kian Ann Ong, throughout the experience, according to Asia One.
She also told hospital staff she was scared of leaving the loo in case neighbours sprayed water at her or threw stones.
Only leaving her seat 18 times to shower, after almost 1000 days her husband finally gave in, calling up the emergency services before she was forcibly removed from the bathroom.
"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 Kian.
Mee Yan Leong is now receiving treatment in a nearby mental institute.
