Having Pica as a not child
10 months ago · 2 · Eating Disorder, +2
Pica is an eating disorder where someone eats inedible things. I have this.
Usually, small kids have this, but i'm a teenager, so obviously when someone sees me eating crayon, they're gonna be rude. Its worse when I explain, because they just look at me weird, like i'm a freak or something for an eating disorder that I cant control.

I want what I can't have to be thin, to be pretty I grew up knowing if you're not skinny your ugly I want what I can't have going to the bathroom vomiting cause...
TW: ED I honestly regret going on a restrictive diet. I don't know how I'll be able to recover on my own. I can't seem to get a doctor, dietitian, therapist...
Most people have an addiction to something. What they hopefully learn is how to control their addiction. Being young gives you an advantage. You can relearn a lot easier than someone who is older.
If your addiction is impacting your life negatively, then now is the best time to intervene and relearn better strategies for yourself. Try sticking a piece of gum in your mouth instead? Smokers use that trick. You can also research ways to circumvent your eating disorder. You aren't the only one in the world who battles this issue. Find out what techniques others are using to make a lasting solution, if that is what you want.
The important thing is for you to know you're not alone. And, you aren't weird. There's too many people who do this for you to call yourself weird.Reply
