Where to start?

So, I’m a hoarder. I hate it, I am ashamed, and very few people know.

My house is a mess. People say that when they mean that there are a few magazines lying around and an unwashed dish in the sink, but that is not what I mean. I mean pile on top of pile on top of pile.

I can’t move around easily. I can’t find anything. I can’t throw things away. I attach weird sentimentality to inanimate objects and I look at the piles of stuff and I just get overwhelmed and have no idea where to start.

I’m hoping this site will help me, somehow, to focus my mind and encourage me to start getting rid of things.

So. Many. Things.
