Question Pica

I have been obssesed with eating erasers for almost ten years. The older I get the more I have the need to eat them. Do you think I have that eating disorder called pica? What effects on the inside of my body can eating erasers do? Someone please give me some advice!!!!!

Re: Pica

How weird, I was just talking about Pica today with my dietitian. It turns out that people usually eat strange things like dirt and other non-edible things when they are lacking something in their diet like vitamins or minerals or such. Have you asked your doctor about it?

Re: Pica

Sounds like Pica to me...I'm not sure what is in erasers, so not sure what effects they have on you. Maybe do a search and find out. Some MDs think that Pica is due to a deficiency in something. Have you told YOUR MD about this?
