My mom is a textbook paper hoarder and exhibits most of the symptoms associated with the hoarding mental disorder. Though she's anxiety-prone and seems to subsists on covert contracts alongside food, water, and air, she's a kind-hearted and well-intentioned individual.

I've learned to deal with her shit over the years to the point where it no longer phases or surprises me and I have no delusions that I'm going to fix her without forced cognitive behavioral therapy (no savior complex). I strive to have an adult relationship with her and involve her in the lives of my children. Though more often than not it's a chore to maintain the relationship and all its facets.
