Polyester Eater

 i was about 5 yrs old it was a white thin shirt in the basement, i started chewing on it , don't know why,  but i stopped cause i didn't want to get in trouble, as i got older, i start chewing new white cotton fabrics looking for the taste of polyester. later down the yrs. i figured out i like chewing and eating new white or very light color polyester fabrics, such as shirts, table cloths, lining or shell inside of  dresses,coats, pants, inside of new pillows, i shred the fabric to strings and chew until its gone, it takes sometime a few days. i love it and cant stop. am worried.

i have the same problem and i can't stop it and i'm so afraid that it harm my health :( please if there are any body who have answers reply

Hi there,<br />
<br />
I'm producing a documentary about PICA for a major cable tv network. I'm looking for people who are willing to share their story and their experience with PICA. I believe that recently, the public has been exposed to more and more cases of PICA and it is something that is becoming normalized and understood. People seem to talk about it now with less judgement and more interest. I think your story is really interesting because it relates to fabric. It's something I would like to learn more about. If you are interested in speaking with me everything will remain confidential. I'm really looking for someone I can get to know and learn from.<br />
<br />
Thank you<br />
