You have Pica. Go to your primary care physician and he/she will send you to a hematologist who will give you iron treatments over a period of time. The problem I, you are severely anemic. So was I. after a series of infusions your desire for cornstarch will be gone.

You're probably right, I know that I'm very anaemic - although it's hard for me to imagine being totally free of these cravings.

The lady in the (entertaining, but a bit disgusting with the spitting out of chalk lol) video below was a big chalk eater, but she says that she lost her cravings after infusions (she has another video about her iron levels, etc).

Not feeling great right now, because I am completely out of chalk. Tried some kaolin clay in powder form, but it isn't working for me.

Fine if you have a problem with the text, but is this type comment really necessary?

It's a shame about the houses, but I love the pictures of the cliff itself. I've googled it and it's red sandstone.

The clay has been giving me headaches & been making me dizzy. So I stopped chewing big chunks & just bite off a small piece from it. I also still then have an headache or get a little dizzy it'll just be for a shorter time period. So I'm taking a break from it. I kinda crave clay but not as bad. But I haven't ate none all day. When the cravings get really bad then ill take that risk but it won't get really bad for a couple of weeks. Just wanted to give y'all an update on things since I haven't said nothing since I received the clay.

Tell me when this thread is updated:
