This Is The First Chapter...

I joke with my wife that I am being buried alive... but it is the truth. What do I do? My house is becoming unmanagable. Our house is not unclean, but she feels the need to bring home more and more each day. The garage has become her personal garbage pit, each room space for collecting more... this is a disease in which the person afflicted doesn't recognize. I get blamed for everything that is missing, despite her ability to not find all the things she has packed away. I am already stressed in our relationship, our children and now the house has made things overwhelming. It is too much and some day you will find me buried at the bottom. I didn't know this when I married her and 5 years in - it is killing me.. so death will do us part....sooner than later.

I can understand how you feel. I had a boyfriend that was like that once, any piece of junk working or not working he would save and actually have panic attacks if he didn't. His ba<x>sement was so bad, just junk. When he was gone I started throwing things out and finally he started to notice and I told him I am not going to live like this anymore. He would then start to look everyday down there. Then he would come home and check the garbage. I finally got a lot of stuff gone, and the last straw before I left him was my computer printer broke and was about 5 years old and they didn't even sell ink for it anymore. He refused to throw it away because "I may need it sometime." I couldn't take it any more.

I have read your stories and think you and wiffy must sit down and talk about what you both want in relationship and see if its worth saving but you have child to consider too.You both have to compromise and your wife has got to slow down on things she brings home unless your going to start garage sales or E bay auctions.Clutter is not ok but well hope things work out.If you were in my area would come and sit down with both of you and help you but your to far away.
