Good morning Doctor
I am sorry to bother you again, but I seem to have a recurring problem with my clutter disorder. You may recall that when I came to see you four years ago, you prescribed a shed for my condition. (You can see my previous symptoms by clicking on the Archive for January 2012). Sadly my shed is now full of even more clutter and in spite of repeated efforts on my part the clutter will not go away.
Goodness knows I have tried. In 2013 I got rid of a lot of socks and ties, but now my sock drawers are overflowing again and I do miss those ties 😂. See my blog ” Clutter-head” by clicking on October 2013 in the Archive.
I made another brave effort only two years later in 2015, when I thinned out all the kitchen drawers and cupboards. Remember all those useless, unused gadgets I had accumulated — I still don’t know what many of them were for? Then there were the half full bottles and long past their sell-by date cans —- I have not missed any of them. That was a colossal effort, which seemed to help for a while, but gradually the drawers are full to bursting again and the cupboard shelves are double stacked so that things regularly fall out when you open a door.
Dear Doctor, I think this cluttering must be a bug of some sort or maybe a virus, because it seems to keep coming back. You will see from my blog in October this year, that I think I might have Pig Pen’s Disease, have you heard of it? Do you know if there is a cure for PPD? If you don’t have an answer could you please refer me to a specialist, because my problem has been going on for years and I do not seem to be getting any better.
It may be best if you could refer me to a de-cluttering specialist. I don’t know if you can get them on the NHS? I really don’t think another shed would solve the issue, although I must thank you for trying.
Yours sincerely, from the bottom of a heap of clutter
