Hi confusedmommy here.

This will be the first time I have ever told any one, what I'm about to say now.
I am 21 years old I am married and I have 2 kids. One is 2 and the other is 7 months old. Its hard for me to admit but I have a problem. Every since I was 16 I have had this over powering feeling to steal. Every where I go I get the feeling to steal. I was never like that in tell some REALLY bad things happened to me from some one close to me. Those bad things happened to me for 2 years(started when I was 14). Then some one I didn't know Violated me. Its like it never would end. So anyways when I stole for the first time I didn't get caught and the feeling of not getting caught was like a relief in away? I felt like that was the only thing I had control of in my life. I know some people throw up or cut them selfs to relive anxiety but for me it was every time I stole something? Im so confused and I want to STOP so bad. NO ONE KNOWS ABOUT IT NOT EVEN MY HUSBAND. Please help me any body....:confused:
