You’ve probably heard of some athletes drinking their own urine when training, but you’ve probably never heard of someone actually addicted to drinking their own urine. Sadly, this is the case for 53-year-old Carrie from Colorado Springs, who has been drinking her own urine for the past four years and has consumed more than 900 gallons. She drinks about 80 ounces a day and admits to drinking “almost all the urine” that comes out of her. She also says it tastes like “water” for her.
But that’s not all. Carrie not only has a habit of drinking her own urine, but also likes to digest it nasally! She even goes as far as drinking it in from her eyes using an eye cup and sometimes brushes her teeth with the stuff and rubs it on her skin like lotion. She obviously has a pretty disgusting hobby, and doctors aren’t sure what kind of disorder she’s suffering from. Some say it could be a type of Pica disorder, where people are obsessed with eating things that aren’t food, while others suggest that she displays the exact symptoms of Obsessive Compulsive disorder, spending a good deal of time obsessing over her urine. Whatever it is, it’s odd and gross!
