Compulsive hoarding is a mental disorder that is just beginning to be understood. As a hoarder, I have acquired things over the years with a specific purpose in mind at the time of the acquisition, used some of those items for their intended purposes, forgotten the goal for different objects, but now that I find that they have outlived their purpose in my life I am struggling to rid myself of those same things.

Nothing mind blowing happened today.

Just nose blowing.

Finally got a some decent sleep last night. Steroids tend to pump me up and not let me rest. At all. I finished them the night before last, so last night I finally got some rest. I feel a bit better for it, but I am very much looking forward to sleep tonight. Chest finally seems to be clearing, but I can tell I've now got a sinus infection. That's ok. I can function better with a sinus infection than with the stuff I've had!

Got more done today than I have in awhile, so that was good. No dehoarding, but daily stuff like casseroles, dishes, cookies and laundry. Oh. And cleaning part of the freezer out. Every little bit helps. Makes me feel more human, to borrow the expression from a friend. I like feeling human.

Got the paperwork from the breast specialist today that I need to fill out and take in Monday. I'm going to fill it out tonight before I go to bed, so I don't forget anything. If I don't get to it tonight, I'll be doing it first thing in the morning.

Wanting to make sure I keep posting every single day to keep my mind on the big picture. Dehoarding. The blog helps keep me focused. I need that. It would be very easy to lose that focus and drive with everything going on right now.

Right now, my focus is on my big, warm, comfortable bed. It's whispering my name. I think I'll go see what it wants...
