Follow up on hoarder issue...

As this letter writer attests, it's not always as easy as reporting to an agency and getting a social worker. Not all situations fit agency criteria for that kind of help.

What to do if you must choose between living with a hoarder or getting some clear and clean space in your life?

How do you cope if they're in denial? Or so ashamed that they resist help?

They're making great headway with phobias and anxiety disorders of all kinds--you'd think there'd be more help available for those who can't stop hoarding--and their families.
