I haven't been diagnosed . I also don't talk about this to anyone e v e r but i always loved eating sand as a kid, still crave it . I never thought of it as a disorder before reading it here , i thought i was just weird.
My craving for more began about two years ago when i started secretly eating the deco sand my mom bought for the living room. It was fine sand and i loved the crunch and taste. After that came the clay ( used for masks, organic) and chalk ( regular drawing chalk ) . Then i turned to babypowder . It never occured to me that something was up, however i started reseaching online and the first things i found were articles about deficiencies ( nothing about pica ) . Lately i am getting concerned though, because i can't stop myself from eating fucking laundry detergent and or wash tabs . I am sure i can die from those bc of the chemicals and i would like to avoid dying from my own stupidity but i can't stop ? Is this pica or should i just smack myself out of it ????

This is definitely pica. I have a psychology degree. It is probably more common than we think. Please be safe and consult professional help like a therapist or psychiatrist. I worry about the amount of non food, potentially dangerous items you are ingesting. Message me if you need support or want to talk.
