B keeps putting metal objects in his mouth. I have caught him on two occasions with drawing pins in his mouth - having no idea where he got them from. At school he was caught putting the tiny ball magnets in his mouth. He often puts coins he finds in his mouth.
Wasn't sure if it was a regression thing, stress thing or a craving thing. I know craving ice can be a sign of aneamia wasn't sure about metal being the same thing?

Trevor the truck driver
Me? Back at work, was suffering from anxiety and panic attacks, much better now Although my line manager doesn't believe in mental health problems so it is an inetersting challenge! I am so looking forward to the Easter break with the kids. ~Had wanted to get away but don't think that is going to happen now

oh yes my old friend Trevor... he hasn't been out of the closet since I put him there circa 2011... poor thing must be desperate for daylight!
I understand people don't understand mental health issues, it would be a whole lot easier if they did, the amount of times people have told me to 'snap out of it' or 'pull myself together' if only it was that simple eh?
Even without going away, spending the easter hols with the kids sounds like fun... just don't forget to think of yourself sometimes... It's easy to forget we are people and not just someones mum, even if they do have to come first.
Gotta shoot... I'm already late. will be back on later if you are around for a chat but if not, shall speak to you soon x
