I know something that's hard and she can still put in her mouth, if you know what I mean.
She smashes rocks with a hammer, then eats the jagged shards?
Question, how the fuck is she still alive?
In fact, even better, never mind her fucking digestive tract...
How the fuck does she still have a fucking arsehole after shitting out rocks all the time?
Woah woah woah, how is her digestive system still in one piece?
Chickens eat rocks to help mash up food in their digestive system from what I remember. I'd expect rocks/pebbles to not do too much differently if a person ate them too.
Yeah, i know a few people with pica, they eat chalk and stuff.
It would also probably make sense to just not eat rocks.
Just throwing that radical idea out there.
Stomach has acid, you know that guys, right?
when you drop acid on rock, aggressive reaction starts...
whoa acid rock, must look that on youtube
DO you know how weakly most rock reacts with acid?
My dad used to do the same thing. He'd specifically go out and look for smaller, smoother rocks and ones that were easy to chew. After a while he started taking iron supplements I believe and that sorta curved his craving.
That and he started to damage his teeth a little. Crazy habit I say.
Silly human, you're not an herbivore mammal in need of gastrolithes! You're not even capable of digesting cellulose!
Well... people eat metal (as in keys, bolts, knuts and shit) so I don't even care.
Chillies have iron in them, and they ain't hard to down :-)
rocks contain many good minerals.
"A condition that affects the way a person behaves, such as Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) or Fetal Alcohol Syndrome (FAS)"
people with pica cannot control whether or not they so desire to eat rocks. whether or not you consider them "fucking weird" (there are much stranger people on this planet) is irrelevant. they have no say in developing the condition and they are for the most part incurable.
stop trying so hard to be a twat in this thread.
Just because it's a behavioural condition doesn't mean she can't get help man.
please elaborate as to what help she would get for pica specifically.
Psychological help, specifically to try and behaviourally condition her to not eat rocks, and it's gonna have a bad effect cause she eats sharp jagged rock, any dumbass can tell that is a fucking bad idea.
not to mention that this is of developmental cause, as she developed it directly from anaemia, and has been doing so over 20 years. She specifically enjoys eating rocks and if it poses no threat to her health for now, why would she ever even consider paying out of her ass for an overpriced american healthcare program? especially to find that the situation that shes in has a far less chance of success statistically
i'd like to know where you got that idea from lol...
I won't admit to some things but the most innocent one is my pagophagia.
Well it says sharp jagged shards, so I imagine a sharp jagged shard which would seriously just wreck your organs.
Pica is Slovakian for cunt or pussy.
I just can't hold it, while I'm reading this thread.
Instead of jagged shards of rocks couldn't you just... y'know. Grind them to dust? Probably easier for your organs.
Pica sounds like it would be something in one of those Japanese horror mangas.
it was made for me
She eats rocks and shits out bricks.
Now that's hardcore.
There was this guy who ate METAL things like whole bikes.
