Updated information re: hoarding

Turns out that hoarding behaviors may be more properly associated with depression than with obsessive/compulsive disorders. Also that hoarding problems tend to worsen with age. Read more in a National Public Radio report on a recent national meeting on aging issues.

Both pieces of news square with our observations. They also lead to the conclusion that simply conducting a massive clean-up may not only be ineffective, but also counterproductive.
