My Strange Addiction

TLC (Discovery Channel) are doing a series on people and their odd addictions.  There are the ones you would suspect if your mind is weird enough like mine, ao feel free to pop over and watch some episodes.

But this one really got me.  Mattress eating.

Another star of the upcoming series is 26-year-old Jennifer, who has been addicted to eating mattresses for more than twenty years.

She estimates that she has consumed a total of eight beds since her addiction began.

The show will follow Jennifer’s life, as well as her family’s concern that her mattress diet may be harming her health.

Call me insensitive (go on!), but I don’t think the mattress part of Jennifer’s diet is the problem

    Would it help her sleep you think?

    She is of such a size she finds it difficult to navigate her way to the fridge or pantry. This brings new meaning to the term convenience food – the mattress just happens to be the closest thing she can lay her hands (& teeth) on.

  • Gordon Gibson

    “She estimates that she has consumed a total of eight beds since her addiction began.” — I’m guessing she consumed the Manchester on those eight beds too…

      Yeah we could probably sheet home the blame for that too Mark.
