Re: The further adventures of the mountain of stuff

Thank you for your kind replies.
Clearing the stuff has been like climbing Everest.
It has been a long and difficult adventure.
To continue the metaphor, I have moved from base camp to camp 3 :D

Re: The further adventures of the mountain of stuff

I posted all about it and then lost the post. Never mind. Presently, I am finding posting here to be a bit hit and miss, I am not sure why this is. I picked up the CBT book Overcoming Hoarding. I don't really go for self help CBT, but as hoarding is a practical as well as an emotional malaise, I sha...

Re: The further adventures of the mountain of stuff

Well, the work goes on, today I am sorting out crockery and lots and pans. Why so many ? And why so hard to get rid? I remember when we were children and we were down to the last cooking pot....and it sprang a leak. We kids tried to fix it ourselves. So now as an adult and I see a cooking pot in the...

I agree is a limit to what can be done by charities unless you have had a thorough professional assessment. Wishing you good l...

Re: Help me please

Read Ang03, As a first step and to save your energy, may I suggest that you copy and paste your post above and send it with a brief covering note to your GP. I think you should have a psychiatrist assessment and a carer' assessment. Putting things in writing is one way of getting the help you deserv...
