Reasons People Hoard And How You Can Learn More About It On 2 Television Shows

By Guest

Compulsive hoarding is an illness that actually also is called disposophobia which is the excessive accumulation of possessions and the inability to get rid of any of them. This is a much more severe case of someone being a pack rat as a real hoarder will have this issue get in the way of their relationships with others, their ability to cook, bathe or even sleep in their own surroundings. Some say compulsive hoarding is its own disorder while others contend that it is a type of OCD. Each person that is a hoarder may find value in acquiring various items and some of them once they fill up their homes will go out and rent mini storage buildings with roll up doors to save even more things that they collect. This problem has been recently brought to a lot of people’s attention through a couple of different shows about this problem.

One program that is opening up the dialogue on this more than once realized disorder is the A & E channel with a new program titled Hoarders. This show usually will follow 1 or 2 hoarders in an episode to show what their homes are like and ways they can get help for this problem. A lot of times, it is friends or relativesfamily members that contact the show asking for help for their loved one who has a hoarding problem. It is shocking to see how many hoarders live in rooms that are filled from floor to ceiling with stuff they have accumulated.

Most hoarders understand they have a problem but seem helpless to fix it. Professionals on the TV program explain that it is not just about cleaning out all of the things and making their home clean and tidy again but it is about finding out the psychological reasons they hoard. The majority of them have a physical reaction when the cleaning out of stuff begins and they panic at the idea of getting rid of anything. The reasons for hoarding have been a mom who had trouble dealing with being an empty nester once her children left home or a person that grew up with nothing and wants to make up for that.

Another show that is addressing this issue to the public is on The Learning Channel better known as TLC and has a show named, “Hoarding: Buried Alive”. This too films the horrible living circumstances that some hoarders live in. Sometimes hoarders are even afraid of getting rid of garbage and so the homes are full of trash and all of the bugs and animals that go along with that making it a huge health hazard. Most hoarders are ashamed of their homes and never have anyone to visit because then their truth is discovered.

There are psychologists and doctors that specialize in hoarding and that is what people suffering from this affliction need. Some people have claimed that these television programs have saved their lives which are pretty powerful. Hopefully, shedding light on this problem will assist more people with this debilitating problem.

Connor R. Sullivan has decided to use roll up doors in the steel building he is erecting. He is renting mini storage buildings across the country to house his extra inventory.
