You are welcome to have a small talk here
Hello everybody! I have quite a serious topic of conversation because recently I began to have some suspicions about my friend. First of all, I just started to notice his strange tendencies. I, my partner, and he were invited to a party. And then I began to notice that my friend stole some things. It was some little thing, such key chains or plug. But in any case, it is stolen. One day we were together in the supermarket and he tried to steal a packet of crisps. He was very ashamed to admit it. And this is not the ony case... i don't understand what he id doing this for..... he has oney for things he steels...he doen't know that i noticed many times how he steels things...i am sorry to admot that this is my friend...i am afraid that one day soone can think that this is me who has stollen something that is missed...i do not want to answer for my friend... And I think he started to get some kind of mental illness. I've heard that it is called kleptomania, if I'm not mistaken. What do you think about it? Is it a disease kleptomania? And how serious is this? Maybe I can help him?
You know I think this is a very serious problem and if this is your of friend you need to do everything to help him because as far as I know such mental diseases couldn’t be solved without the help of other people, by the person that is ill. It is not a surprise for me that you are shy to say that this is your friend. It is not a crime but a painful relationship. Just as alcoholics irresistibly attracted to alcohol, patients with bulimia - eating, and kleptomania constantly pulls to steal anything. The stolen item may not have any value, but the fact of the theft satisfying. Kleptomania reasons still unknown, although perhaps the preconditions of this dependence is genetically transmitted by the next of kin. Kleptomania is often seen in people suffering from mental disorders. I think that first of all you have to advise your friend to turn to a psychologist to solve this problem. Maybe it could help him. but if he is really ill that means he can’t go to the specialist himself because he thinks that nothing has happened and he doesn’t need any help from the outside…
I think that's really what you're saying. According to some studies, kleptomania feeds receive from the risk of pleasure as when adrenaline addiction. Only the degree of risk they indirect: in extreme - it is a risk to life and have kleptomania - risk for social freedom, to the professional reputation. The main difference from the kleptomaniac thief motive: what motivated the man - greed or pleasure in the theft process. Kleptomaniac always act spontaneously, without any precautions, they steal things they do not want or cheap. I think it's quite silly psychological disease that can lead to problems.
Kleptomania as a manifestation of neurosis is to be distinguished from the propensity to theft in adolescents, for which the theft could be a protest against the senior or so attempt to raise their status among his peers. Kleptomaniac understands that he breaking the law, and usually he feels embarrassment or remorse, but at the same time feels that it is not able to control himself, and does not know why this is happening. Kleptomania is usually distinguished by low self-esteem, loneliness and the subconscious desire of retribution to society, because "they are so bad."
To tell the truth I know not so much information about this but I believe that it is really a disease that cannot be solved without a good specialist…I also think it is a serious mental illness that cannot bring to anything good anyway. At the same time every perfect them senseless theft kleptomaniac sees as further evidence of his own (usually far-fetched) "inferiority." Kleptomania is dangerous primarily for the man himself: he is always in a state of extreme stress. And since he is also constantly afraid of punishment, then it may periodically occur obsessive fears and mental disorders. After stealing a kleptomaniac lives on obtaining satisfaction, like a drug addict on the dose. When he steals a long time, it feels uncomfortable and again is "at work". So as any other addict person he should be treated in a proper way…it you are good friends and it is very important for you to save your relationships then help him. You are the one that can help him…
It is a pity to hear such terrible things about your friend. But life is life and there are a lot of diseases that interfere with our normal life. But the problem with your friend that he doesn’t understand that it is an illness that should be cured in time until it is not too late. I have studied some information on this case. There are can be breaks between the theft from a week to a month. At the same time a person ill with kleptomania starts torturing sense of guilt, and gets rid of stolen. Treatment of kleptomania is a challenge for psychiatrists. In each case, it is used the selected individual tactics. Unfortunately, people who suffer from kleptomania, very rarely seek medical help because they are afraid of punishment or do not know that it is a disease that can be cured. It is known that kleptomania is very resistant to treatment, so there are no simple methods of treatment of this dependence. In any case you should try to address to the specialist and make an appointment for your friend.
I agree with those ere that said that this is a really serious disease that should be treated with the help of the specialist’s help… .This is a mental illness that is very resistant to treatment. In many cases, there is a need to use even act of psychotherapy. The desire to steal something is so intrusive t ill people that some patients continue to steal even after been treated. This is a sad truth. I even prone to believe that this disease cannot be treated to the end… Scientists believe that in the treatment of kleptomaniac one needs to consider how well human needs are met in person’s life, because as much more stable and will be inner peace of mind. Another problem is that they cannot find a profession where their morbid desire to obtain the necessary discharge. If, for example, pyromaniac with his passion for the fire can go to the fire, and people suffering from adrenal addiction, become fearless stunt, the kleptomania nowhere to apply their passion for stealing.
Hello guys!!!! How are you today? decided to join your conversation! You know t is rather an interesting topic to discuss….Sorry to hear about your friend… I read some information on the treatment of this serious disease…here what I have found.. Sedatives, tranquilizers that are also used to treat alcohol dependence are used in the healing of kleptomania. After all psychological symptoms of these conditions are similar. Like alcoholics, thieves pathological experiencing acute feelings of guilt and remorse, they are very often depressed. Appropriate medication is used to soothe, relax, improve patient’s mood and sense of fun block from theft, nascent in the subcortical brain structures. Doctors may appoint preparations which, entering into interaction with the brain receptors, cause the patient a feeling of relaxation and satisfaction, as "discouraging" him to steal something. So this is maybe one of the most successful ways of treatment…decided to share…maybe it will be useful for you…
I'm sure it's kleptomania. And maybe your friend could have very serious difficulties with getting rid of this disease. We must remember that no drugs cannot replace a doctor's psychological work aimed at eliminating the causes of addiction. In many cases, hypnosis helps in the treatment of kleptomania. Of the various psychological trends bring good results of neuro-linguistic programming, cognitive behavioral therapy. In addition, there are also some other methods to cure this problem. But in any case, he needs serious help of psychologist or psychiatrist. Just the other way there is no way out.
This should be kleptomania. The main thing now is to identify the reason why this has happened to your friend. The main reason can be the inability to take the prevailing conditions of life and the inability to cope with daily problems large and small, as well as the internal conflict of the person when the person thinks he loses something in life. I believe that first of all it is a psychological imbalance. But in any case, it is correctable. But the main thing now is not to lose time and correct it until it is not too late.
