Cleptomania or not ?

November 3, 2011 10:29am CST
To my knowledge, there are people out there who like holding the good of other such as mobile phone, laptop, other possession and the like. I don't like to see or borrow other stuff for my own sake. I also don't like to feel ownership of the goods of others and for me it was degrading my humanity. Do you think that such habit is a disease?

Kleptomania is the irresistible urge to steal items that you don't really need and that usually have little value. It's a serious mental health disorder that can tear your life apart if not treated. Kleptomania is a type of impulse control disorder — a disorder in which you can't resist the temptation or drive to perform an act that's harmful to you or someone else. Many people with kleptomania live lives of secret shame because they're afraid to seek mental health treatment. Although there's no cure for kleptomania, treatment with medication or psychotherapy may be able to help end the cycle of compulsive stealing.
