Hoarding Woes: ‘HD’

“In the revised, fifth edition of the American Psychiatric Association’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5), “hoarding disorder” becomes a separate diagnosis, characterized by a “persistent difficulty discarding or parting with possessions, regardless of their actual value.”‘ (more here)

No you shouldn’t now say ‘you’re crazy’, available diagnosis and justification or not. But, the phenomenon has risen to a level of awareness that got it into the DSM (5)   Hoarding Disorder indeed!!!
