Is There a Hoarder in Your Family?
Hoarding Disorder became an official psychiatric diagnosis in 2013, with the release of the DSM-5. It's more than just having a lot of possessions. Hoarding Disorder is in the same class of conditions as Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder. In the case of hoarding, the person cannot stop themselves from accumulating more and more things, even though many times, they know that they do not have the room to store any more items in their home.
Hoarders have a hard time letting go. So things accumulate. Eventually, it gets out of control until someone else sees the problem and forces them to get help. It's a difficult, emotional process, and once the accumulation gets to a certain point, it's best to call in the professionals.
