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.

An interesting blog I came across...

The other day I was searching the internet for blogs about hoarding - especially those written by someone who is trying to get rid of their own clutter. It's helpful to read how others are dealing with hoarding, but I've found very few. Unfortunately, the ones I have found are often abandoned for months at a time, and I was hoping to find something a bit more current than that.

I did come across a very interesting blog, though. It's called, "If I Were a Hoarder". I find it encouraging in a different way than I would find a blog from another hoarder encouraging. It's stories and pictures remind me of why I'm doing as much dehoarding as I possibly can - even when on days like today I'm finding it hard to do a single thing.

I drank my last can of soda yesterday, and I'm sure that plays a very big role. I'm having the roughest time trying to keep my eyes open! Hopefully, I'll never drink anything with caffeine in it again. It's just not worth it to me. Remember. You read it here first.

I'm going to go sleep off my caffeine withdrawal...
