How CH are you?

POSSESSED from Martin Hampton on Vimeo.

Being OC (obsessive-compulsive) is not just about keeping things neat and clean. Compulsive hoarding is also common among people with Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder.

Over the past few years, it's become easier and easier for me to part with my things. I've learned to live with just one large suitcase and a fat backpack for a whole year.

There's no problem with having a lot of collections (I have beverage cans and a joint stamp collection with my mom, for example), but it does become a problem when you can't get rid of anything and your stuff literally get in your way. Do you know someone like that? Please show them this film.

  1. I know someone with the same problem but much, much worst. You cannot imagine. The police or the firefighters -don´t remember now- had to go to clean up the flat...

  2. that's pretty bad.

    i also saw something similar on oprah. the clincher was that the woman worked in a store that sells things for organizing the house.
