Have you ever all a sudden started to feel claustrophobic and not be able to do anything about it? Ever feel like the world is closing in on you and you can't escape it? Ever feel like you are gasping for air and there is no end in site?
Well, that is how I feel every day. I started to wonder why I was having these pseudo nervous breakdowns and finally was able to diagnose myself with an acute disorder called: Smallclosetasideous (small-closet-a-side-ous).
My medical dictionary defines it as:
A disorder typically common among women. Persistent or recurrent feelings of not having a big enough closet for all clothes purchased. Typical symptoms include: 1) excessive shopping, 2) inability to throw old clothes away because at one time, they were considered cute, 3) thinking white and black shirts are a staple and one can NEVER have enough, 4) closet envy for closets bigger than one that person currently has.
Here is a picture of my current closet. I feel claustrophobic just looking at it. Now, please tell me that if this was your closet, you wouldn't come down with smallclosetasideous too?
One day, I am going to have a HUGE closet with lots and lots of room for future purchases. Until then, I have grounded myself from shopping. Well, ok, maybe not. I do need a new pair of boots....
