Pica or OCD?

Doctors and psychiatrists interviewed by various news outlets have expressed their views on what Carrie could be suffering from.

Interviewed by Fox News Channel, psychiatrist Dr Keith Ablow said that Carrie could be suffering from a form of Pica disorder - where sufferers compulsively eat various inorganic things, like dirt or fabric, that offer little or no nutritional value.

He added that she appears to display the symptoms of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), as Carrie spends a large amount of her time obsessing about urine.

Ablow hypothesised that Carrie might be addicted to drinking her own urine as it allows her to not think about the stressful parts of her life.
