If you haven’t heard about hoarding symptoms and how it can affect you, your house, or your family, we will shed light on this topic since it’s been more recurring these past decades, especially this last year.
The new year represents an opportunity to start over! It certainly wasn’t an easy year, but we’re sure the difficulties we’ve endured through 2020 will become a joy for this year. Many of us have probably spent more time in our homes… more than what we would have planned, at least!
The truth is… we have come a long way. Understandably, you might have gotten yourself full of things you thought you would need, given the circumstances and the uncertain times we went through in 2020.
You might not be aware of it, but accumulated clothing, bags, newspapers, and junk tend to come from pathologies and illnesses like anxiety, depression, and social disability. Most of these pathologies, however, are related to hoarding disorder.
We’re hoping to be someone you can trust if you feel related to what we’re describing at all.
Definition and Common Hoarding Symptoms
A hoarder is a person that accumulates excessive amounts of junk, groceries, newspapers, bags of old clothing, and, overall, elements that don’t necessarily have a reason to be there or have any use whatsoever.
For hoarders, these elements have a strong value, not only emotionally but also physically, economically, and sometimes even legally. They think that keeping all items possible would spare the distress that drifts from parting with them, which results in the problem of accumulating items.
The Anxiety and Depression Association of America listed the common symptoms of someone who hoards:
- The person is unable to throw away items and possessions.
- When confronted about the items and the possibility of discarding them, the person deals with anxiety and distress.
- Items have affected the individual’s personal and active living space to the point that they cannot move around or the items completely obstruct it.
- The person suffers from obsessive and compulsive thoughts, such as the fear of losing or running out of an item, which results in accumulating more items.
- The person feels embarrassment and discomfort around others. He or she tends to distance himself from anyone who might confront them or about the possibility of discarding items and possessions.
