Test to see if you’re a potential hoarder
We were talking about hoarding today because of a sad story of a man who's hoarding inside his Byram home was so out of control that when a fire broke out the authorities couldn't even force the doors open for the longest time. Sadly, authorities believe the soon-to-be-evicted man set the fires himself and chose to remain inside leading of course to his death. Most hoarding doesn't end so tragically, but all hoarding can be serious.
Here's a quick test put out by the OCD Foundation to determine if you recognize hoarding when you see it. It's a series of nine pictures of the same room in varying degrees of clutter. You go through them and mentally pick the one you believe crosses the line from sloppiness to hoarding. At the end you'll see if you picked the right panel.
