    Keep anon [or delete], not something I admit on a daily basis tbh.

    I keep eating/nibbling the fabric off towels, my clothes, tissue paper, normal paper, etc, without even realising it.

    Are there actually any health risks that go along with this?

    I heard that eating fabric makes you more at risk to contracting swine flu. That however could be entirely fabricated.

    As far as I'm concerned, there's no calories or fat in them, so it's healthy. Keep eating.

    This

    Why would you do that on a regular basis, seems a bit odd and quite a strange thing to post up

    Seriously post up a serious problem, something that is actually worth reading, after all, that is what H&R is all about, Entertainment!

    There is probably a gigantic ball of fabric in your stomach right now.

    Now I realise it's unlikely I'll die, but your first point is what I was actually worried about.

    Guys, I'm actually not even joking about this despite how silly it sounds.
