If you are dealing with a hoarding situation don’t be embarrassed. It’s not due to poor organization or laziness. Compulsive hoarding is a complex anxiety disorder that makes it difficult for a person to discard or part with possessions, regardless of actual value. Hoarders may feel the item will be useful one day, or feel sentimental about the items. Many who hoard have dealt with this problem their entire lives, and only after other family members become involved, is the issue addressed.
In addition to excessive clutter, other serious effects of compulsive hoarding can include fire or health hazards and infestations. It may also become impossible to prepare or eat food in the home, or to have appliance, electrical or plumbing repairs conducted because service technicians cannot enter the home.
