      I am moving from Baltimore to San Francisco. I’ve been living with friends from my current job and will fly myself and my cats to the west coast in about 3 weeks.

      I fear my friends are getting over me real fast, because I look like I am not trying to get things together. I also fear that I will leave such a mess I will damage the friendship.

      They have been amazing, but really do not understand my emotional paralysis when I get overwhelmed. There are a million small details to manage for the move as well and I fear I will let something drop. I’m sorting donations and stuff I am shipping out (I don’t drive and we think this is cheapest) so I must admit I am getting a bit high strung about it all.

      Any advice you all might have would be greatly appreciated right now.

      Thanks

      Hire a professional organizer. It’s worth it!

      I have the same suggestion, hire someone to help. Or maybe someone to clean everything after you’ve left, so you’re sure you don’t leave a mess. This will show your friends that you care about the relationship and appreciate their generosity.

      Any thoughts on where to find a organizer on short notice. I think this is a brilliant idea.

      There are a few listed in the ADDItude Directory here:http://directory.additudemag.com/listing/guide/professional-organizers, but that doesn’t do you any good if they’re not in your area. I would google professional organizer and your city and I’m sure you’ll find many options.
