A new group is born!

Two years ago, Ceci G stood in the driveway of her mother’s recently cleaned out hoarded home. The house was empty, and her mother had agreed to get ongoing treatment and to allow others to monitor her status on an ongoing basis, and yet, Ceci felt as though an even bigger burden than her mother was on her shoulders.

With her mother’s recent admission that she did, in fact, have a problem and needed help, Ceci realized that she had a problem herself. Her childhood had been less than ideal, almost unbearable at times, and she had left home as quickly as she possibly could. However, the effects of her upbringing in the hoard, raised by a mental ill mother who placed things in the place of people and relationships, left Ceci unprepared to live a “healthy” life, even when she was out on her own.

Ceci acknowledged that she had learned some habits, thought patterns, and compulsive behaviors that hurt her as she made her way in the world. It was easy to blame her mother for having taught her these things, to blame others who should have seen and intervened, but she knew that as an adult it was now her burden to acknowledge and find something new, something healthier. So she set out on a journey of personal recovery, looking at the things that had wounded her during her formative years and putting together hurts and broken habits. Ceci sought to be brutally honest with herself and others about the things she was doing now that were less than ideal, and to experiment with new ways of thinking, behaving, and being.

Her journey led to the formation of this group, for Adult Children of Hoarders, in Spokane, WA.
