Hello, I just wondered if any of you are also hoarders like me? My daughter said its usually caused by a mental health issue. The only think I can think of is that we had two house fires whilst I was living at home and a teenager. The second one was severe and I lost everything, I only had what I stood up in.
I am now married with two DC and a wonderful GD. 40 years on I have collections of all sorts, phone cards, postcards, china horses, stamps, horses brasses and lots of other things. Yesterday I discovered all the wedding cards we were sent and don't even get me started on photos!
My DH has gone out for the day with DS and I thought I'd just look in the cupboard under the stairs and started pulling everything out. That was a mistake. Carefully wrapped china, boxes of postcards that hadn't made the albums, photos of the children and much loved pets that have passed. It was endless. Then DH called and said he was on his way back.
I have just finished putting it all back, bar throwing a couple of blurry photos out. But it has overwhelmed me! Where and why do I have all this stuff. The DC are not going to want to sort it out when I go and I feel bad.
Anyone have any suggestions or can just sympathise with me?
