Hoarding Woes: Changing the Mind’s Eye?

Through the process of questioning why she values it and keeps it, Sherrell realized it was not the coat itself, but the memory of being a young mother with babies and toddlers. “I loved being a mom,” she says. “I loved having kids home.”

But with her children grown, Sherrell learned how to keep memories without keeping the coat. “I did realize that I can keep those memories with pictures,” she says, and the coat was therefore relegated to the discard box. Sherrell is proud of her decision, in large part because it was “her choice.”   NPR & Hoarding Augmentation
