HD is also hereditary and is commonly seen in people who are above 55 and can get serious as you get older. It’s very easy to feel the urge of holding things when we go back to our childhood. Our parents used to take things from us because they were old and useless, but still, it was a pain, we do not want to see it in the trash. That impulse was intense and we used to cry for hours. We understand what you are going through and we are glad that we know how to help you. HD can be caused if you have a stressful life. You must mend your relationships no matter how bad they are, work with your job and lift your financial resources so that you can deal with life well.
