My mother is a hoarder,the worst of its kind I've seen yet.I can't break her from it.No matter what I try to throw away,she complains and says "no I
need that,I'm keeping that".She has millions of newspapers,plastic cups,plates,clothes,spoons,old expired cans of goods.She has two houses with one
house that has a two car garage and a 2 small building shed packed full of stuff that she will NOT get rid of it.Slowly through out the years I've
been throwing stuff away little by little.Certain things had crusted mold buried beneath it and around.I had no choice,but to throw it away.I am a
person of science,proof,and witness so I "KNOW" hoarding is real and what it does to another person.I could show you all pictures if you like? These
photos are what was left over after she moved to another location.It was a mess hall and a half.I've asked myself a million times over and over how
did I get stuck with such a person who collects millions of things that sit by and not be put to use?
Being her only child (son) I try not to be like her (habits).Anything I get,I get rid of it.Nothing goes to the landfill,nothing.I either burn
it,recycle,sell it,or give it away to either salvation army or goodwill and write if off on my taxes.
Someone who's a hoarder,pack rat,such as my mother can not and will be reasoned with at all.She seems to never comply or cope with reasoning or
understand with simple answers.She is EXTREMELY hard to deal with in all aspects.No matter what question I ask her,the question will simply fly back
in my face with no answer.It's pointless to even ask how's the weather or how's it going? She'll divert the question to something else or start an
argument.So unless you've experienced what I have had to deal with then you have no idea what it's like to deal with someone such as her.I just hope
when she dies,she'll take her whatever mental disease she was born with,with her.
Also,no matter what problems happen or incident occurs,she won't deal with it at all.She'll suddenly stiffin up,ignore the negative incident and act
like everything's ok and move on.She's psychologically impaired bad.
