I Have a Messy House

Because Of My Parent's Constant Construction 71 People

    I Am Sick of It..

    Our whole house just needs a wrecking ball in my eyes. I'm sick of fixing it. Sick of moving **** around and the place is highly unsanitary or clean. I refuse to clean it due to the fact that they try to make me do it all and not only that, but I don't feel like cleaning a house...

    Tragedy & Abuse Activated My Hoarding

    I was surprised to find out that hoarding is a form of obsesive compulsive disorder. It also can be from traumatic events or abuse- Mine is from both. I used to have a perfectly clean and non cluttered house and even my clothes were arranged in rainbow color order. My son got...

    Trying to clean up. Started a couple of days ago

    and so far I am keeping at it, we shall see how long my motivation lasts, but I still have so much to go. I have excuses for how our house got so messy: we work full time and have no time to clean up, we have small kids. But today as I was putting a bunch of papers from 2007...

    My house is a ******* disaster.

    My husband is the biggest slob. His idea of cleaning up is to shove random things in drawers or closets. I cannot do everything on my own and my husband acts like a ******* child when asked to help. Our three year old is so messy. I don't know how to get on top of this. I...

    I Have a Messy House and I Think I Know Why.....

     I use to clean my house weekly, doing the carpets, the bathrooms, the kitech, mopping, cleaning the mirrors, dusting, etc... I never had a problem letting someone in uninvited because of a mesy house. I was almost a neat freak, but not too anal about it. LOL Then one night...

    It Makes Me Sick and It Is Very Embarrassing....

    I understand exactly what Neuroticism is talking about. Well, it isn't really my house I am still living with my parents. If it was my house I would throw more than half the things out in a dumpster somewhere. I can't take that. But since it is my parents house I have no right to...

    I was doing so great at keeping my house clean,

    then I fell into a depression and lost any focus or motivation to clean my house. Now I'm forced to clean up my house because it's a huge mess and I know it's not right to live like this. I've already started on it. In fact, I'm just taking a break at the moment to write this...

    All Anyone Can Do.

    Clean it up-- I've lived with college roommates, single working men, and my wife of many years, her sister & brother-in-law, as well as other living arrangements.  All you can do is keep your own space cleaned up, and gripe and growl about the dirty slobs in your environment...

    What's Wrong With Me?

    Hi, I'm new and I haven't really read anyone else's posts yet, so I'm not sure if I'm way off base, but I just need to talk to someone--so I hope it's okay to talk about my problems here.  I titled my post "What's wrong with me?" because I don't think it should be...
