She says: All we ever do is argue

He Says: She is blowing this out of proportion

I think Jenny is blowing this way out of proportion. I’m stressed from work, and if she could just cut me some slack and stop nagging about every little thing, we’d be fine. We’re certainly not at a point we need the interference of an outsider. Marriage counseling is for people at the brink of divorce, and that’s not us.

My aunt is a hoarder

Hoarding is more than just a mess, it is a mental health disorder. The Mayo Clinic defines it as “a persistent difficulty discarding or parting with possessions because of a perceived need to save them. A person with hoarding disorder experiences distress at the thought of getting rid of the items.”

Although hoarding is a common problem, it is difficult to treat, and its effects can extend beyond an overstuffed home. It can put people’s health at risk; it can damage families; and it can affect surrounding neighbors.
