I'm looking for answers, I'm new to this sight, and it's not myself but my daughter with the impulse control problems. There are multiple problems, kleptomania has become one of the prominent ones however.I thought she could have Bipolar disorder at one time and am still not sure but some things don't add up for that particular disorder.She is and has been for awhile, severly depressed,thought disorders, such as paranoia,etc.obsessive behaviors such as one project that consumes all her time energy and mind.Could be scrapbooking,and that is IT,24-7,for maybe amonth, then it is overand on tosomething else, totally consuming.I've tried tofind help for her she doesn't know what'swrong either, she just knows she lives in misery everyday is a struggle.She stays in bed most of the time and she has 2 daughters.She steals everywhere she goes, she's very bold about it and it's every store, every gift shop, every time she leaves home, she steals,all kinds of things, I'm amazed she has'nt been caught. she tears the plastic offmovies in the blockbuster and takes severalmovies at a time,library books, food, clothes, pictures, anything and it has gotten worse and worse, she does it when her children arewith her or myself,and maybe occasionly before, everytime now.I'm so concerned for her but don't know how to help. this site sounds more like her than any yet.She has stated it's a short release from the depression, as others here have stated,yet this is just one of her problems,she too,is a good person but a sick person in need of help.Where does she go for help and does this ocd have other features? such as her depression, thought disorders, irritability, distrust,shutting herself off from others and other things? or is it confined to impulse control? I need to understand it better. thanks for any info.
