Really nervous

Posted: 18 September 2017 - 06:57 AM
Hi Shepard, sorry none of us replied to you for so long!

First of all, i know at 19 you are legally an adult, but trust me, you are still a kid. Your life is just starting and you have plenty of room to make changes. I am a mom and a teacher and i want you to know, It is not reasonable to expect a 12 y.o. to keep up with the housework for a two person household alone. So let yourself off the hook!

I don't know what POTS is?

Hopefully having the cleaning service come in will help. It sounds like right now you most need to focus on becoming physically well.

My house isn't extremely cluttered like some other hoarders, but the rooms & house in general is absolutely filthy from 5 years of neglect. Today a family member hired a cleaning lady for us. My father and I were hit by a car on the 31st, and we've got injuries that require a nurse to come in, pack wounds, etc. except that our house is really dirty and unsanitary. We were forced to move in here after a bankruptcy caused by my mother's excessive spending, and had we a much bigger house than this little apartment, so naturally there was clutter and little room. My Dad is a single father, and therefore is constantly working. It was my job to clean up the house but I failed miserably like I always do. I never was taught proper cleaning or organizing skills as a kid, and so the clutter kept piling up. Then I developed POTS, and I had to drop out of high school. I couldn't even get up out of bed some times and I never had the energy to work. I'd try but about 2 hours in I'd start to faint and have dizzy spells that took me off my feet. This was when I was 12, and now I'm almost 19 and it's still a problem since I have no health insurance and no money hardly. I haven't had anybody enter my house in almost 7 years so I've been socially isolated. I never go outside because I'm scared if people will smell the house's odors on me or if I don't look a certain way. Dad hoards tupperware and gets nervous if I try to throw it away, even though we have over 40 pieces of tupperware. There's a whole bunch of empty egg cartons on top of the refrigerator and my room is probably the worst. I've created this wall around my space so I feel safe from my anxiety. I get extremely anxious when even my dad tries to move anything in my room. I don't know what's wrong with me, I absolutely hate my life because it seems like nothing but bad things happen to me. I have no money and no energy, no willpower at all left to do anything. I'm at my wits end. I don't know what to do.
