    Hoarding is characterized by avoidance of decision-making about possessions (things and stuff). A new study by NIH reveals that hoarding seems to be characterized by abnormal activity in brain regions of people with hoarding disorder.

    It seems that hoarders assign too much value to their "stuff", making it difficult or impossible to decide to get rid of them.

    Hoarding appears to be not a willful decision to just keep stuff but a compulsion to do so. it’s not that hoarders are slobs, derelicts or compulsive collectors. But rather that they are individuals who have problems making the kinds of decisions about their stuff that others of us may find absolutely reasonable.

    The neuroscience, or study of brain patterns, is finding some important stuff regarding hoarding and other obsessive-type disorders. The brain is a powerful mechanism...

    Here's an example, I had a Polaroid camera and thought, why throw it out, I use to get instant pictures, see the problem? It was a use to. I was proud of my camera then reality hit, its old, no use in keeping it. It was a feeling of a Loss. I threw it out and bought another camera and quite satisfied.
