A new, sad film...
I know we've discussed the "isles of piles" and I am one who grew up with that. While I've always felt the inablity to edit belongings was a learned skilled, I can't quite wrap my brain around how it decends into mental illness like the mother in the link.
This is really sad and I'm not sure how this is happening in our society. I know we are just really starting the realize that it exsists. Since I've been trying to learn more about hoarding, the pain of the children who grow up in these conditions is a new area for me. I know I've always felt resentful about the amount of stuff in my mom's home and her inability to teach me even the basics of home care, but this is different level all together.
