ABOUT THE SHOW
Each 60-minute episode of HOARDERS™ is a fascinating look inside the lives of two different people whose inability to part with their belongings is so out of control that they are on the verge of a personal crisis. Whether they’re facing eviction, the loss of their children, jail time, or divorce, they are all desperately in need of help. In a fly-on-the-wall style, we’ll capture the drama as experts work to put each on the road to recovery. But cleaning is just the first step, like taking drugs away from an addict. The healing won’t be easy. For some, throwing away even the tiniest thing — a sponge, a button, an empty box — is so painful that they will not be able to allow the cleaning to be completed, no matter the consequences. For others, professional help and an organizer’s guidance give them the strength to recover. At the end of each episode we’ll find out who has been able to keep their hoarding behavior at bay and who, despite help, is still lost inside this painful disease.
Now listen I don’t buy into all of the darn reality shows out there I actually can’t stand them. There are just too many on way too many subjects… but this one, I’m really addicted to.
It’s like a train wreck, it’s so bad but you just can’t turn away. I never realized that people live in such unsanitary conditions and don’t seek help for their issues until it’s to late. There have been shows that I was just sickened by and truly saddened. I always ask the question, why in the world do most of these folks have pets? One episode had a family of three women and 10 yes I said 10, cats! On this same episode one of the women had carpet beetles on her bed that she slept in every night and didn’t even know that it was contaminated. One family had so much nastiness going on that the husband tried to commit suicide and the children were going to be taken away. Now do you see why I’m addicted?
I know that we all have obsessions and some people even have hoarding or pack rat tendencies. It’s really important that you realize your issues and address them before it’s too late.
Addiction is real and I have one….
