All I have is a drawer in my kitchen that I stuff things in I don't hoard, I do have some other thinking disorders so I think we all do. Is a good thing to study and correct these disorders. My thinking errors tend to make communication difficult and I really have a hard time with conflict resolution.

OCD is the most dangerous one in my opinion. Not many people who never experienced it first hand can understand the degree of suffering that comes with OCD. Sufferers are basically expected to pull themselves out of it but very few people can. Thanks!

I found your posting very good, I especially have many old things stored at home. I am an avid collector, I keep all kinds of stuff at home. Its publication helped me clarify some things. Thank you.
