Dr. Tolin asked Carol for an in-depth interview. He started with questions about her hoarding problem.
Carol: I don't know where to start. I don't know what to do and I don't know how it got this way. I swear it's like I went to sleep and I woke up and it was like that.
Dr. Tolin: Do you ever have times when it's hard for you to throw things away?
Carol: I don't believe in throwing things away or wasting things.
Dr. Tolin: What do you think would happen if you just got rid of some of those [things]?
Carol: I will grieve for a day or so and kick myself around for another day or so.
