I'm wondering if any one here lifts for these reasons or things like them..
I personally have recently been diagnosed with Autism (HFA) at 24, and am underweight and not in great shape due to a autoimmune disease, as well as ADHD OCD anxiety PTSD addiction issues, bipolar, and suicidal ideation.
shoplifting has become my favourite stim. its a buzz like no other, ive started tempting fate more and more which is stupid.. because a part of me actually wants the LP to chase me... so i can feel the rush, adrenaline,the manic laughter and excitement once i get away - if i do. its ridiculous but i think that goes away when i do big lifts. the high from walking out with a lot of money and personal merch is enough.
Shoplifting also gives the feeling of control and power making it more addictive as thats an innate drive in humans. it also can provide its own sense of status as ultimately money is a human status symbol which can unlock millions of doors in this short life. this society i call "The Human Zoo". good book lol.
but im interested in your opinions on how shoplifting may have helped or hindered your mental health.or any advice.
