My name is Lisabeth, and I am the adult child of a compulsive hoarding mother. The take away from my journey is that the hoard is merely a symptom of a life threatening, relationship-destroying mental illness. An illness that often includes behaviors from addiction, child/domestic abuse, and personality disorders such as narcissistic personality disorder. Stay, read, and please, by all means, intervene if you see a child being raised in the shadow of the hoard.

An unrelated bit of humor
Two of my favorite things... Tardar Sauce and Quiser(sp?)
- Hoarding... NO ONE wins. No one.
And, no matter what, your hoarding parent's situation is NOT your fault.
