I've got hoarding on the mind because I come from a family of hoarders. I'm not as bad as any of them, but I've got some stuff to organize and I want to make a improvement.
I've got a schedule for myself, but I do worry about my mom.
who in my opinion, doesn't have much touch with reality. Long story short, we haven't spoken in a few months because she denies the problems my family has.
I'd go over and work on it if I could, but she has a house full of cats (part of the problem)and I'm allergic. I also live about 2000 miles away, and I'm under medical orders to keep stress way down.
She looks at her house as fine, when believe me, it's not.
I'm thinking of sending her some videos of the show hoarders. it's not to be mean at all, it's just that show seems to show perspective to these people.
what does anyone think of this idea?
anyone else have a situation like this? if yes, how did you deal?

No one in my family or myself have a hoarding problem. This is a huge issue for some people like your family and not so much yourself, anyways momma you are 2000 miles away from your mother and this is a problem that can't be fixed just by you it has to be fixed by your mother. This is a sickness as you have already figured out. I think with the fact that you need to keep your stress level down and you need to take care of first and for most you should just call someone that specialist in this that is in your mothers area. You can get your stuff organized and keep yourself in check and break this chain so your children don't go down this road like some of your family members have and that are in. GL momma keep yourself healthy and keep your head held high.
