Hi, first of all like everyone that gets caught, I’m very very ashamed of myself but glad I got caught. Let me just explain as quickly as I can, not wanting sympathy or anything like that.
2019 I got diagnosed with breast cancer (that’s when it started) I for some reason started stealing things of little value to give to the charity Brest cancer research. This has continued until I released I needed help. I’m showing all the symptoms of Kleptomania but too ashamed to get help. I also suffer with Crohn's disease.
I went to B and Q to get a few items, then I had the urge to steal things I didn’t need. To cut a long story short, I got caught and escorted to a little room. I told the security guards I needed the toilet as I have Crohn's disease, he just ignored me and told me to sit down, I constantly told him I really needed to toilet and showed him my medical card but just got ignored.
I can’t remember everything he said because the inevitable happened (i soiled myself) I just remember him saying I would get a fine from CRS for £218 because the items I hadn’t paid for came to £31.
As a Crohn’s sufferer I’m used to accidents but so upset this happened when it could have been avoided but that’s not my concern. I’m now worried about the fine, I have little income and don’t know how I’m going to pay it. I can’t sleep for worrying, I darn’t leave the house, but I know I’ve brought this on myself so I deserve everything I get.
