I have a number of friends and family who hoard stuff. I have noticed that every single one of them seems to be overly tired. Is there correlation or causation between hording and energy levels or is it a coincidence?

Thank you for your honesty - we all learn from it. I hope you can lift yourself out of the battle and let go of the past. The present has so much to offer - and so do you!
Thank you for sharing. It is nice to try to see it from a hoarders point of view. I hope you can solve the conflict and feel great!
It can be a neverending battle! I've been there too. But you're coming to a lot of personal wisdom. The hard part is healing the needy and clinging parts, teaching them this wisdom, and moving forward. Best wishes and prayers for you!
Thank you to everyone who responded to my comment. I failed to mention that when we reduce our stash of hoarded materials, we battle an inside force to run back and retrieve that item. No matter how miniscule the item is, I feel overwhelming need
Excellent point about allergies - I was wiped out by dust mites (achy and exhausted) until I learned to seal my bed and get rid of stuffed furniture. A hoarder with a dust or dust mite allergy would be in bad shape!
