The Doctors: Chalk-Eating Addiction

The Doctors introduced Tania, a practical nurse and mother of two. She revealed that she’s addicted to eating chalk and baby powder. She’s been eating them since she was about three-years-old, and even keeps chalk is several places around her house and in her car. She even likes to break up pieces of chalk, put them in a bowl, and eat it like potato chips. On her days off, she could eat three boxes of chalk and then have to follow it up with laxatives. On average, she spends four hours a day in the bathroom and sometimes she has pain so bad she can’t even sit down. She’s even had times where she couldn’t control her bowels.
