I don't have pica, but I do eat dead skin, blood, scabs, fingernails, etc. I pick at my fingers and bite my nails so that's just part of it. Also this is super weird, but I chew and spit these body tissues, especially when I'm restricting, even though I don't chew and spit actual food. Yeah I'm weird

I chew ice and I wasn't aware it was so unusual until I came here.

My bf laughs at me for it but I still don't believe it's weird.
