Florida woman eats 7 couches in a year
Comfort food: The woman who suffers from a rare disorder that means she cannot stop herself from eating... sofas


A mother-of-five has been diagnosed with a rare disorder called Pica after seeking medical help for her addiction... to eating sofas.
Adele Edwards, of Bradenton, Florida, has been eating the foam inside couch cushions for 21 years.
She sought help when the cravings started getting out of control.

Miss Edwards, 31, said: 'In the last year I’ve eaten seven sofas.
'I unzip the cushions and snack on the foam inside. And once I start I just can’t stop.
'But now doctors have told me that if I carry on, my addiction will kill me.'
Pica is a disorder found most commonly in toddlers and pregnant women who lack certain nutrients, causing them to crave non-nutritive substances like chalk, coins, batteries and even dirt.
Sometimes it’s caused by stress, and Adele admits her first time happened during a very emotional period in her life, when her parents were on the brink of divorce.

İmage@ Stirling!

Kreeper, rofl.gif you put way more thought into this than I would have. lol.gif

Get this, I knew a girl from Indianapolis that ate styrofoam cups. 13.gif wtf2.gif is missing in the diet that these petroleum based non food sources can possibly provide? Styrofoam is only one molecule away from gasoline, pour gas in a styrofoam cup and watch it all melt into one.

RE: Florida woman eats 7 couches in a year
Much thought? Pfffttt.... I don't actually ponder these things. The thoughts just sort of explode (SPLOOOODE! I love that commercial.) on the scene when I read the articles. For example, I thought of six or seven different things while I was typing the first sentence. I've always been that way. At times it is probably annoying trying to converse, not the shoes the interaction, with me as I am very easily distracted and my thoughts jump around. With all the other side shots that pop into my head, even as I talk or type, it can be very difficult for me to stay focused on a sentence. But don't worry, I will surely finish what I was saying at a later time.


Two reasons I like weed: It helps slow the mental rambling down to a manageable pace and it makes me feel happy. That's right. Now matter how foul my mood, weed always lightens things up and makes me relaxed and happy.


I especially like weed, on weed.

Too bad it doesn't grow on trees...
