Dating the child of a hoarder

Rated 3.81/5 based on 567 customer reviews

You can tell the difference between a pack rat and a hoarder simply by looking at your mother's home.

It has definitely gotten to the point of no return - not sure how much of the house can even be saved which is sad because it was a very nice 4 bedroom house that we grew up in.She claims she is working on it and I believe her but she can no longer tackle the big items like a room that is walkable and instead cleans out and organizes kitchen cabinets.It is out of control at this point and we are desperately seeking advice.But the pack rat can be reasoned with and will eventually understand that she needs to throw some things away.For a hoarder, on the other hand, every personal object in her territory has special meaning and becomes part of her persona.
