This Woman Feeds On Toilet Paper Every Day
Some women crave pickles during pregnancy, but Jade Sylvester developed a bizarre taste for toilet paper.
The 25-year-old mother of five from Gainsborough, UK, developed the odd craving while carrying her youngest son, 15-month-old Jaxon, according to the Lincolnshire Echo.
“Two months into the pregnancy, I started craving toilet roll. I still don’t know why. I like the feeling of the texture in my mouth, rather than the taste. I like the dryness. My family tell me it isn’t very good for me – but I can’t help it.”
She said she cannot keep herself away from the TP treat, however, she waits until she needs to answer nature’s call before giving into her creepy, or crappy, cravings, as she told the Mirror.
“Today I try and hold off going to the bathroom because I know if I go I will eat the paper. I usually eat around eight pieces per visit — sometimes I go to the bathroom just to get some toilet roll. It does fill me up quite a bit. At first I used to eat a couple of squares at a time, but I keep eating more and more.”
She eats up to a roll daily, and worries she may have a problem.
