I am in the same state of mind. I had a massive heart attack at the end of Oct 17. I was brought back to life. Recovery is a long, slow process and I am doing well. I was in the process of piecing a queen quilt for a friend and quilting it for her. The top is almost all put together. I got it out the other day but we have had company/family here since before Thanksgiving. I have been ready to finish piecing the top and getting it on my Millie. However, DH has filled all my working space in front of my Millie with his stuff. I don't know where he will put it but it is going to have to be moved. He is an artist and he has many paintings stored around my Millie. He has two file cabinets full of stuff. Crap, stuff he needs to get rid of or move out from the frontside of my Millie. I cannot begin to quilt until this is all moved. I am a frustrated wife. Most of our home (including all of the garage) is his stuff. The front bedroom has become his walkin closet which most of needs to be thrown away. My husband is a hoarder and will not part with any of his ancient clothes that do not fit, over a hundred pantings that he needs to try to sell or paint over, tech coming out his ears (3 computers in this room).
Does anyone who is married to someone like this know how to cure him of his hoarding or need for new clothes? Help!
