The other night I checked Discovery Health to see if any of my shows were on, and there was a show about hording. In the show, they had done kind of an intervention of sorts and had brought in a guy to help these people. The one guy’s house was so packed full of stuff that you had to walk on stuff to get around. The guy had a path that you were allowed to walk through, marked with bags and such. You could hear him telling the therapist and the camera crew where they were allowed to step.
I looked it up and found an interesting site, where it talks about the beginning studies of hording and such.
I tend to hang on to stuff that has some sort of sentimental value, but it’s nothing like what these people suffer from. Hording is definitely a paralyzing affliction.
