I can't believe there is actually a website that I am posting to about ice-chewing, but here it goes. I have the WORST case of ice chewing and craving. When my 21 year old son was on the way, I started chewing ice. . . about 24 hours after delivery, I quit. Then my 18 year old daughter was on the way. I once again started chewing away, after l about 24 hours after she was delivered, then I quit again. During this pregnancy, I loved the smell of styrofoam. . . I actually got a hold of some (the kind that is put in pillows) and chewed it until it would begin to crumble in my mouth. 2 1/2 years later, my 16 year old daughter was on the way . . you know the routine . . after she was delivered I stopped . . . that was until our 6 year old daughter was on the way. . . here came the craving again. However, after this pregnancy, I had a tubal ligation (tubes tied). I however, didn't quit chewing ice. I am still chewing ice. . . I have actually purchased a SCOTSMAN MDT2C12 TOUCHFREE CUBELET ICE MAKER/DISPENSER!! (Found on e-bay, paid $2250 for the thing) This is THEE machine that makes SONIC ice. I swear I have this down to a science . . . . If I take out about a pitcher's worth of ice ( and give it to my plants so I'm not "wasting water") then the machine kicks in and starts making that amazing ice that sticks to your teeth . . the really fresh cool stuff. I will literally chew ice until I am shivering, and sometimes I will go to bed with a front toothache that radiates up past my nose and into my forehead. I've actually wrapped in a heating blanket, chewing ice, as I'm watching tv, using the computer, etc. I chew ice when I'm folding laundry, cleaning the windows, polishing the floor, driving, taking a bath . . . it's out of control I know!!! I have 2 chipped molars due to chewing, but my dentist has never lectured me. I know for a fact that I chew over 10 lbs a day because of the amount the ice machine can produce.
Ok, the confession is out. . . I do have fibroids (3), am 44 years old now and every other month has a cycle from H E _ _ !!
Does any of this relate to anyone??
