This a video of my daughter. She has been (mental hospital)hospitalized twice in the past few months. I have been reaching out to every avenue that I can to find answers for her. This is the video about her hoarding. It starts out kind of slow, but gets more in depth. You can read her history under the video. She needs some answers! Thank you!

Have you learned anything about OCD. I've seen a lot of connections between hoarding and OCD.
I've also seen a connection between OCD and anxiety.

It also seems that if she is self injuring, that could also be related to anxiety.

Although my son did not hoard or self injure, he did suffer from anxiety for a while. I was fortunate to find a wonderful child anxiety program for him. It helped tremendously.

I recommend that you look into OCD and anxiety programs and read whatever literature you can bout it.

I'm sorry, but I did not watch the video. I can't right now. I am basing my opinion on what you wrote. I am not a professional in any way. I'm just a mom who has a kid that suffered from anxiety and spent HOURS (by hours, i mean endless hours day after day for quite some time) researching the topic in order to find him help.
