  • Anyone watch the Dr Phil show about hoarders ?

    Collectors are trying to deal with things in order to help with anxiety over control issues with other areas of their lives .
    What do you think? He had on one guy that was spending 1500 a month on action figures on Ebay , the guy was saying they were a good investment .


    I know I have some of that , I have OCD and panic disorder and over 50 guitars but instead of my usual buying 2 to 3 guitars a month like I have straight for over a year I havent bought 1 guitar in the last 4 months except I did put that damn Epi scroll on layaway .

    I have only sold 1 guitar that I have collected , I find it hard to part with them .

        Some people just collect things because they like them a lot. It depends on how much control it takes over your life.

          Yeah, but most of the people with all the guitars around here buy crap. That don't count.

            Hoarding behavior is viewed as a way to manage and overcome anxiety.

            It is a coping and survival mechanism. However, the acquisition satisfaction is quickly overcome by the desire to acquire the next thing.

            Stop the hoarding behavior and the anxiety problem remains.

            The anxiety problem is dealt with in a process of future personal development, investing in one's self, and not in acquisition of things.

            The anxiety is often caused by dissatisfaction with current personal status and development. It is often a depression related issue.

            The future personal development process begins with dreaming and setting action plans for future success. It's about goal establishment, work process, and fulfillment.

            The cost for hoarding is most obviously monetary. However, the greatest cost is one of opportunity. The 10 hours it takes to find the deal could often have been used in a more productive manner, such as working the action plan to achieve a fulfilling goal.

            Very interesting topic!



            I hear what you're saying, BUT....what if you just collect purely for the love of the items you are collecting?

              The older I get the more I think almost every problem we have in the world is related to somebody trying to control something they shouldn't. I have a lot of theories about control but to sum it up I believe a lot of unhappiness is caused by someone not feeling that they have control over something productive or creative in their life.

              Until they do all the other stuff they are controlling or hoarding is not providing any satisfaction.

              It is an interesting topic. I used to have anxiety issues too but they stopped when I recognized what I could and could not control and most importantly accepted those things as being controllable or uncontrollable.

                One of the interesting things I've heard about this is that with larger purchases, more excitement is experienced before the purchase, but consequently, more depression or more of a need for a next purchase is experienced after the item is acquired. This is how the feedback loop starts.

                        If that "pure love" starts interfering with normal activities of daily life, relationships, finances in a significant and adverse manner, then it has features of obsession.

                        Many obsessed hoarders lack insight: they see their collecting activities as reasonable and nothing out of the ordinary. If the objects collected are flattened milk cartons or paper towel tubes, filling entire living rooms, the problem seems obvious to outside observers. However, when the objects have some socially redeeming or artistic value (paintings or musical instruments), the line gets muddy.
