    Negative self-talk, cognitive restructuring and hoarding

    Negative self-talk, cognitive restructuring and hoarding

    Whenever anything goes wrong, whether it's something terrible I've done, all the way to just being in a traffic jam, I find a way to yell at myself in my own head about what a terrible person I am and how awful I am and why everything in the world that's bad is my fault.
    It's a really exhausting way to live and yet it is pretty constant in my head.
    And I know when I hear from you that it's not just me, we all I think give ourselves a really hard time, we are our own worst critic.

    Money and hoarding and money hoarding

    Money and hoarding and money hoarding

    "One extreme is that a hoarder can shop compulsively, spend a lot of money, get into debt because of buying so many things and get into real financial trouble because of the hoarding.
    "But the other extreme is people who hoard money. And I'm not talking particularly about the billionaires, although obviously they hoard money. That's not really what I'm talking about. I'm talking about everyday people who you hear about it don't you? Somebody dies and then it turns out, they had millions of pounds in the bank. And often they lived a really frugal life.
    "They wanted to save money the whole time. And yet, unbeknownst to everybody, they had a lot of money in the bank, often refusing to spend even when they really really needed to."

    Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and hoarding - a deep dive with Dr Jan Eppingstall of Stuffology

    "ACT promotes accepting what is outside of your personal control, and committing to action that improves and enriches your life. That's kind of in a nutshell. But to understand ACT, and how it works, there is a need to touch on the theory that underpins it."

    What you can do for Future You

    "If you want to be the kind of person who goes running every day, you have to start running. If you want to be the kind of person who cooks from scratch every day, you have to learn to cook. If you want to be the kind of person who reads a lot of books, you have to start reading books. And if you want to live in a dehoarded home, you need to dehoard your home."

M0nikQ ,

Thank you for your brutal honesty

Thank you for all your honesty and vulnerability with all of us. I really appreciate that you have included other types of professionals that shed more light on living with hoarding/ocd. I am so thankful that you get into all the nitty gritty details of all the complicated feelings that we go though with dealing with emotions and our stuff. I am the grandchild and child of hoarders and I struggle with stuff also. Your podcast is a much looked forward to time for me and I re listen to episodes to really get the messages/tools into my head. I am rooting for you to come to peace with your stuff and love to hear your progress. Keep up all the great work.

Thank You!

I love this podcast because of your bravery and sharing your story. You’re sharing the experience first hand…from a hoarder’s perspective - which I think means more than any of the other programs & podcasts are doing, since they only appear to have “professionals” on there that only give the side of the story from the outside looking in. Your using your platform to speak for those that don’t feel they have a voice. Thank you for sharing your story. You’ve got many people rooting for you!

Godsend

Wish I had found your show sooner. Sooooo very helpful in trying to understand an older relative’s excessive hoarding over many decades, which only became worse after the death of a loved one. So eager to help but so far they haven’t let me. Thanks.
