Go see your gp have blood tests and if yu r anaemic he will gve yu pills for that.
I tried talking to my about it . I suggested that we'll go see a doctor to see if I was anemic . She said that there's no need to go to an doctor because I'm not anemic & if I am I will grow out of it . She's also getting very irritated w/ me talking about this so I can no longer talk about being anemic or going to the doctor & getting it checked .

The cravings are slowly coming back & it's starting to make me go crazy . Trying my hardest to be strong about it but I don't know how long that will last . My mom also don't want me to say another thing about me being anemic or anything about being anemic , so there goes my chance of being on Iron pills . But I hope everybody else is enjoying their clay & corn starch .:)

Sorry to hear that Alexx, that's a difficult situation.

You say you're 16? I don't know how the system works where you are, but is it possible at all for you to go by yourself to a clinic or something? As a mother I wouldn't like to think that my kids couldn't talk to me or did things behind my back, but this is your health we're talking about - don't want to be seen to be criticizing your Mom but have to say can't quite grasp why she is so against your getting checked out. Have you told her about the cravings, or just that you think you're anaemic?

Also for Alexx: As you've probably seen, some of the ladies on here have said that iron pills do work if you give them a chance. If it's found that you need them that may be the best solution for you, especially as you can't get access to clay on a regular basis to satisfy your cravings.

Just that I'm anemic . I can't tell her about the cravings since she already spazzing out about me telling her I'm anemic . Don't know how she might act if I tell her that I crave clay . & she doesn't let me drive . She's very over protective over me . That's also an reason why I don't have a job . Things are very complicated for me .

The cravings are back & they came back strong . I'm just craving a big chunk of white dirt that I can break down into smaller pieces & eat the small chunks & save the powder for later . Mmm my mouth is watering right now . Literally .
