Revealing family secrets

With your encouragement, I put in a call to their doctor. It isn't easy to reveal these things I've been conditioned from childhood to conceal. Because it's always been a problem. It's just gotten steadily worse since I moved out until I now really think it affects their health. I don't know if he'll think it's a problem, but at least I'll know that he knows.

But on some level it is so very scary to *tell*. We're all terrified of my mother. My father, all of us. And growing up seeing my father scared of crossing my mother's will and unable to do anything about any of her behaviors made it some sort of enormous monster in our house. Not only the results of what I know on some level is a mental illness on her part, but the secrecy surrounding it. For example, when I used to live there, the hoarding was confined to nonpublic areas. I took pictures once to show my therapist.

I can't help but think she's going to wreak some horrible justice on me for telling.
