Hi I'm new to this board - I wish I'd thought to look for an online support system sooner! I have always had more than clutter, and it's always started anew with an emotionally upsetting event, which shows in the items, and which begins again even after being cleaned up and beautiful.
I need to stop it! There are two kids at home who seem to have accepted my habit, and I cannot have family or friends over. I want it to get cleaned up but I cannot physically just DO IT without becoming exhausted, literally wiped out. I try a little wine, or maybe caffeine another day, or a whole energy drink...even let a new neighbor friend in who offered to help, and did an immense job with me, and now all my neighbors know about my re-developing problem after a bad divorce and stemming problems.
I could help others, but that's because their stuff is not my emotional baggage!!!
A de-hoarding-share plan with someone like me would work out really well!
