57: Hoarding: Two Experts, Part 1
Listen now
Hoarding: the word is recognizable, but the truth is that most people don’t understand what hoarding is and how it happens. We are pulling back the curtain on the deeper emotions behind hoarding in today’s episode. I’m joined by “That Hoarder,” the host of the podcast, Overcome Compulsive Hoarding. You will notice that we are not using her name as she wishes to remain anonymous. Anonymity allows her to talk openly and honestly about hoarding and its stigma and shame. Join us to learn more!   Show Highlights:  ●      What hoarding looks like–and why it’s much more than simply having “too much stuff” ●      The transition from being a “messy” person to someone who couldn’t let anything go ●      How That Hoarder realized she had an organization problem ●      Why finding bargains is a problem for That Hoarder ●      Why she started her podcast, Overcome Compulsive Hoarding ●      How she began therapy for PTSD and slowly revealed the hoarding disorder ●      What therapy techniques have helped That Hoarder: doing “experiments,” dealing with overwhelm, and asking why ●      Why curiosity is a valuable tool for That Hoarder ●      Common misconceptions about hoarding disorder ●      That Hoarder’s advice for someone with a friend or family member with hoarding challenges ●      What to consider when children are being raised in a hoarding environment ●      How to gain confidence and exercise your de-hoarding muscle ●      Helpful mantras and motivations that work best for That Hoarder ●      Early warning signs that someone is passing from being messy into hoarding ●      Why hoarding is more than just “keeping too much stuff” and boils down to the struggles of mental anguish, obsessing, and compulsion   Resources and Links: Connect with That Hoarder: Website and Podcast Connect with KC: Website, TikTok, Instagram, and Facebook Get KC’s book, How to Keep House While Drowning We love the sponsors that make this show possible!
