What Causes Hoarding

Hi Kathy,
I am glad that you are seeking help to understand how this started for you. A good cognitive behavior therapist can help. But the important thing is to see where you are right now and take the steps you need to do to move forward. You can change. You can learn to establish and practice habits that lead to living a more comfortable and confident life. Hang in there. You can lick this.

Hi! I have really been thinking a lot lately about why and how I
became a hoarder and what caused me to start hoarding. Can there be things from your past and your childhood growing up that can cause this problem to start? I do know it has some to do with ADHD, OCD, Anxiety, Depression which I suffer with all of those things. I also had some issues growing up. I was bullied all threw school K-12 grade. I also lived in a home with an alcoholic parent which was hard. I feel these two things and others caused me to suffer some trauma. I wish there was a way for me to pinpoint what caused me to have this problem. I am getting some treatment. Does anyone have any ideas? If so let me know your thoughts. Thanks!!
