Warning Signs that Someone You Know May be a Hoarder

Hoarding is a treatable mental disorder.

Hoarding has been around for a long time.  Of course, it’s only been in recent years that it has been called hoarding.  Before that, it was called “being a fucking slob.”  Hoarding has now been recognized as a mental illness instead of a character flaw or a mark of laziness.  People suffering from hoarding disorder cannot figure out how to let go of any object — even if it’s rotten or broken.  What seems like obvious junk to the rest of us looks like gold to a hoarder.

Worried that you or someone you know may be a hoarder?  Then check out my article at Yahoo! to go through the most common warning signs.  Thank you.
