MrBallen Podcast: Strange, Dark & Mysterious Stories

Episode 58 -- "Love Makes You Do Crazy Things" (PODCAST EXCLUSIVE EPISODE)

Description

In 1996, an 18 year old college freshman named Diane, began acting strangely. She would suddenly break down and start crying hysterically, and then a second later, she'd get extremely mad, and then a second after that, she'd be fine again, as if nothing had happened. For a while, her classmates thought her erratic behavior must be tied to her just really missing her boyfriend, who went to another school. But when Diane's classmates finally approached her and asked her what was going on, she gave them an answer that at first sounded so unbelievable, they assumed it was a joke. But Diane wasn't joking, and she had the scars to prove it. Horrified, Diane’s classmates left her bedroom and ran to tell school staff.
