Day 41

Neverending drama

So.... I thought I was pregnant. We're usually careful but weren't this once so I took a test. It said pregnant.. not a good thing in our current situation. Anyway went to docs did a test, came up negative, did several tests over the next week negative, back to docs one week later.. negative again. A relief really but inbetween the uncertainty there was panic. There's too much stuff in the house. I live with a lover of car boot sales and markets. The house is so full of ornaments you can barely navigate through the living room so we had decided it has to go.
Then he decided to keep on with the idea after the relief of the news.
However, the decline of one's mind means what he says one day will be replaced with doubts the next. So here we are arguing because now he doesn't want to get rid but he still wants to decorate. No no no. I am not trying to decorate a room we can barely move in and now I'm being blamed for trying to get rid of his things.
Make up your mind please...

    Hoarding is a disease; you need to acknowledge that and get some psychological help for him. Once he understands that, you can start working on things to make it better, but it will take a long time.... patience.

    Hi Rav not been on in a while, the drama of am I am I not sort of brought things to a head. I had told him if I was pregnant everything had to go. Thankfully I'm not but he is finally in the mindset of reducing things greatly and we have already managed to get rid of some rather bulky items so we are getting there slowly. It still looks very cluttered as there are still lots of small and mid sized ornaments and lots of things on the wall but it's so much clearer than it was before. It's taking time but we're getting there thankfully and finally xx

    Bette I totally agree, clarity needs a clear surrounding for a clear mind. Unfortunately it's taken a while for it to sink in and even then there will be hurdles but this is due to a deteriorating mind and the mental problems that accompany his illness. Still I'm glad something is finally getting done xx
