When I was
pregnant with my daughter I had many strange food cravings. I used to crave
peanut butter with sardines and ice cream with marmalade. But after my daughter
was born a very different craving began. I started eating baby power. At first
I used to just sniff it but after a time I began wanting to eat it and my
craving for it just got stronger and stronger.
I have tried
many times to stop and I have for a while but I always end up giving in to the
craving. My husband caught me eating baby power once and wanted me to go to see
my doctor. I told him that I went and the doctor gave me medication. He seemed
to believe me so I started hiding the baby powder in my underwear draw and I
only eat it when I am alone in the house.
have started getting some very strong stomach pains when I eat the baby powder
but to be honest my craving to eat it is much stronger than the pain I get afterwards.
I know it is not normal but I know I can’t stop. I feel like such a freak and I
hate lying to my husband and sneaking around to satisfy my craving but I just
cannot seem to stop. Please can you give me some advice?
First of all
Mhizz Honeydew I want you to understand that you are not a freak and you are
certainly not alone. After doing just a little research online I found that
eating baby powder is in fact a very very common addiction. Collectively it is
called Pica, which is defined as having an addiction to eating non-food items,
such as dirt, chalk, sand and even glass.
obviously a very unhealthy practice and with baby powder those addicted are
often suffering from a mineral deficiency. So I would highly recommend you go
and see your doctor as soon as possible. I am sure you want to see your
daughter grow up to become a woman but you are decreasing your chances of being
around by refusing to get help. Please do not wait until this addiction causes
you serious health issues GET HELP NOW!!
would YOU say to Mhizz Honeydew???
