  • Are they afraid that they are being drugged? Ask them if they want to test it. Thats the only thing I would think of. But you can only test it relatively quickly after its stored- otherwise it dont work.

  • Hoarding behaviors, such as saving urine, may have no absolute motivation, however...this should be brought to your physician's attention if the action of saving urine is causing problems in the individual's life (for instance, worries about unfair treatment etc.)

  • Hi sweetpea, This person that you are talking about...You know this person for how long? All their life? 10 years, 20 years? etc. Is this out of the ordinary for this person..or has this been going on most of their life? What I am trying to say is...In order to help so one or to give good advice..a person needs some history on the person. What was this person like growing up? What was his home life like? What was his parents like? Did he have brothers and sisters? If yes, what were they like? Does this person take illegal drugs? Alot of people are here willing to help...but we need more information. From what little we know..I think that you should try and get this person some professional help..before something really bad happens! Maybe not right now, but in the long run this person will thank you for it! GOOD LUCK..TAKE CARE...SKEETER. :)
