Default PICA anyone?

Does anyone else have an obsession with eating something odd? Mine is ice. I love ice. I didn't even realize it classified as PICA until I was told so by my doctor. More so when I'm pregnant but I always eat it.

I was the same when I was pregnant. OMG I loved ice. I do not like to eat ice at all normally but when I was pregnant I constantly had it. I would take a glass, fill it with crushed ice, then fill in the gaps with water to soften the ice a bit. I can't even describe how much I loved it. lol. As soon as the hormones wore off I didn't care for it again. My iron was a little low but not much so that was probably it.

My sister and I eat a ton of ice.
We used to eat tissues. (Clean ones, lol.) That stopped years ago, though.

I have low iron usually and pregnancy doesn't help the matter. I am trying to sort it out but in the mean time I love my ice too much to give it up. It's not like it's harmful. It's just a sign that I am having other issues.

Careful paige it can be harmful . It can chip teeth. I chew all the time and have had it happen. Low iron is a common cause .

Pickles and/or banana peppers. I eat them like a fiend, and not a single jar of pickles or banana peppers ever brought in this house has survived more than a day. Ever. Also root beer.

Although, fun fact, root beer was what my mom craved when she was pregnant with me. And now I'm addicted to it full-time. Soda, flavored suckers, candies, etc..

I blend it with water and let it melt. I don't chew it. I like it the consistancy of a slushie.

It's not totally "odd" but I love eating cereal every morning for breakfast. Of course not always the same kind, that would be kind of boring.

When I was anaemic after overtraining one year I craved ice so badly. My mother once came home and took my ice trays out of the freezer and I had a full-blown meltdown. I was eighteen and I was just wailing because I wasn't going to have ice after thinking about it all day at school. It was really intense (and the reason my dad finally made me go to the doctor!).
