Re: crave to eat ice
Yes, have your iron level ck'd. I heard that too.
it's called something like "pica"? right?
I remember quite well as a child loving the smell and taste of soil. I ate it once in my neighbors back yard while we were playing by the swing set and I'll never forget how bad I got teased. NOW I see why I got teased!
not till I got older did I realize I was vit. deficient.
my mom rarely ever brought my twin brother and i to the doctor.
I remember having conjunctivitis and barely being able to open my eye lids one morning because they were stuck together from the pus, and I woke up in panic screaming to my mother. she told me to put warm compresses on it to clean them.
we never were put on antibiotics like they administer so quickly now and I tell you, I don't get the common cold.
I can be around people who have a cold and not get it.
my partner is quite amazed and thinks it's related to the fact I never took antibiotics as a child.
my parents were from Europe and raised differently then we are here.
I don't think it was due to neglect. she was a great mother.
get your iron ck'd
