    Basically I need some advice with regards to my family.
    They call me O.C.D because I don't agree with hoarding and leaving mess in my wake. They will hoard everything from papers, receipts, letters, tickets, stupid cheap meaningless figurines and junk items to clothes which never get worn, to c.ds never get played, to stashing food items. They also have a habit of leaving kitchen cupboard, wardrobe and drawers open, and bathroom doors open especially after going. That wouldn't bother me so much but we are getting pests everywhere and their habits I feel just perpetuates and encourages such problems. When I get fed up and start cleaning everything, they whisper about me and call me mental. However how would you react seeing bugs daily coming out of cupboards, on clothes and sofas and trying to fly everywhere
    all im doing is trying to establish basic hygeine principles but I feel it will never be enough as they outnumber me.

    Am.i in the wrong, are they? Would you grin and bear a situation like this? Please..opinions and advice?

    Could you not move out and let them suffer in their squatlike conditions themselves?
