- Create a harm reduction contract with your hoarder.And put them where? Because I still live in the hoarding house. [Passive-aggressive rant about my morning removed because I am trying NOT to to be a passive-aggressive patootie-head.] I feel like that kind of situation wasn't really addressed. There was one bit about being assertive where it was, "[Hoarder relation], we agreed that you wouldn't store things in my room, and you broke your agreement. Please remove the newspapers from my bed before nine tonight or I'll move them into your room" (pg. 67). Otherwise, the book seemed to assume that the hoarder lives alone. Or possibly with another hoarder. But not with a (mostly) non-hoarding person who just wants to do stuff NOT on her bed once in a while. And definitely not with more than one (mostly) non-hoarding people who just want to eat breakfast at the same time.
- Enforce a harm reduction contract with your hoarder.
- Revise the harm reduction contract with your hoarder.
- Call a bunch of people and try to get them to help with the creating and enforcing the harm reduction contract.
- Remove any belongings you may have in the home.
