Written by Lola Narawa on March 7, 2023
Im pretty sure we’ve all heard of someone with an addiction to sweet or salty treats. But this one here will definitely having you wondering why its even an addiction in the first place.
While you might think that the habit is just something weird that the woman does, it is actually a clinical condition. Kesha, who was featured on the TLC show ‘My Strange Addiction’, has a condition called Xylophagia. In this condition, the individual has an eating disorder that involves consuming paper.
The 34-year-old is not new to eating toilet paper but has been doing the deed every single day for the last 23 years. In the show, she explained that her condition is not irrational but rather stems from the trauma she experienced in the past.
Kesha shared that she suffered a lot in sixth grade after she moved out of her maternal house and went to stay with her grandmother and aunt. “I think I crave it because I love the way the toilet paper feels on my tongue, how it dissolves when it hits my tongue,” she explained her addiction.
