I’m so glad I read this blog!
I find that hoarding disorder is a powerful and mysterious phenomenon.
I work with many clients who are “keepers” (what a wonderful phrase!), and they generally are attached to their possessions with a very strong psychological superglue. Practically impossible to separate them.
Thank you for voicing the view that patience and understanding is called for, and that they deserve respect.
The last sentence is very powerful.
Looking very much forward to the film!
Thank you again.
