Hi! I'm desperately seeking help for my teenage daughter who is starting to exhibit hoarder tendencies. This is not typical teenage messy bedroom. This is cat feces not being cleaned, piles of garbage, moldy food everywhere, no way to walk though everything on the floor. Piles and piles of men's oversized sweatshirts and she won't stop buying them even though there is no need for a 27th sweatshirt. No where to store them. 11 backpacks, all full of papers, garbage, mold, house keys she keeps losing, homework she forgot to turn in. She never cleans out a backpack, just hides it and gets a new one.
The distress she exhibits when we try to clean, just a little, is enormous. I'm worried for her and it's been really difficult trying to find help for her issues. :(
