Today again another guest post from one of my readers, and I thought I’d share it with you because it shows what it’s like to have a family member who is kleptomanic.
Everyone has those relatives that they wish they didn’t have to deal with. You love them, but there is something that makes spending time with them more painful than getting a root canal. My cousin Mimi is like this, and it is because she is a thief.
I don’t mean that she dons a mask and robs banks in her spare time. What she does is steal any small items that she can get her hands on. Over the years has taken everything from money to earrings to tubes of lipstick.
I wondered for years if there was some trauma she experienced as a child that would make her act like this, but I haven’t been able to come up with anything.
A few weeks ago I was online browsing around to cure my boredom when I thought about my cousin. I did a few searches to see if there were others out there that act the same way that she does. While researching, I found a few websites that discussed hypnotherapy to cure stealing. This is was like hitting the lottery or waking up to a full house of presents on Christmas morning.
I looked at several of the links and from what I can tell, I may have stumbled upon something that can actually do her some good. I am not quite sure how much these type of programs cost, but to be honest I don’t really care. Any price is worth it considering the fact that I will be doing something that will help my whole family. Not only will this give us confidence that our valuables will be safe, but it will bring us a lot closer. No one will be struggling to find excuses why they don’t want to be in her presence.
In some ways, I feel like hypnotherapy to cure stealing won’t work, but I am doing my best to be confident. Most of the sites I visited had testimonials from people who have had to deal with similar issues. I know that it will not be easy for her to totally change her ways, but I think she may be very open to it. She has expressed many times in the past that she would like to be able to spend time with the family without having these urges to steal.
I thought that she would have to go in to see some type of psychotherapist, but apparently you can do the entire process on your own. It is as simple as purchasing a program and downloading it to your computer.
This means that there will be no long waits for materials that never show up in the mail. I do not know if the problem will be solved totally, but everyone that has tried this says that they have seen significant improvements. I believe that some changes are a lot better than none, so I am going to purchase this hypnotherapy to cure stealing program for her right away.
