Rare Medical Condition. Sock Eating
Source: Medical Tribune News Service
SEATTLE - A 22-year-old woman was diagnosed with a rare medical condition, in which she craved consumption of socks. She was earthbound half a sock each evening. She also told doctors that as a teen-ager she chewed on and swallowed clothing. She was hospitalized after suffering from nausea and vomiting. The doctors found a large bezoar in her stomach. She was diagnosed with a rare condition known as pica, in which a person craves nonfood items. Previous to this incident, doctors have reported cases of people eating dirt, hair, chalk, clay, glue and other nonfood items. This is the first case of sock eating "Often, when people have a craving it is because they are lacking something in their diet," said Atif Awad, an associate professor of nutrition at the University of Buffalo.

| Los Angeles -- The Mervin Blakes of North
Hollywood, California found a sock missing since 1976. Their house
recently burned to the ground destroying everything ... When they were
digging through the ashes of their possessions, a charred floor board
gave way, and, much to their joy, they discovered a totally undamaged
single sock that had been missing for 19 years. 8/09/05
5/26/05 New York City -- Richard Cleeve, the President of the Board of a Cooperative Apartment Building in NYC, the Almondo, reports today that seven hundred odd socks had been recovered from the apartment of a demented tenant who has been stealing them from the laundry room for over three years. The tenant's only defense was he was getting even with the other tenants who were taking one of his socks every time he did the wash. In addition to the socks a vast quantity of arms and ammunition was found in his flat.
On my way back from university, I found a single dark blue (left) sock, possibly abandoned. I took it with me and I'm currently looking after it since it seems to have suffered from mistreatments. I may have to knit a bit this weekend to keep it alive and wearable. I already have many socks and cannot keep this one, so if you recognize this sock or wish to adopt it, please mail me and I'll send it back to you (you're lucky I
didn't call the SPA, Socks Protection Agency, for abandoning it!).
