I have watched a few episodes. I saw the one about the lady who wouldn't throw away food and the one that had all the dead cats.

I have seen one episode. It is sad. I am a packrat and this show is an eye opener for me. My aunt could be on this show, she is getting that bad.

I have watched this a few times and am completely amazed at what filthy, disgusting living conditions theses people subject themselves to! I can't even begin to imagine the smell...

I watched the new episode last night and felt sorry for the the couple w/ the teenage girl who had to live in absolute clutter. How embarrassing for her...

Maybe we will see Themeanjillybean on this show at some point...............

I hate clutter and go on a rampage about every three months throwing things away. Most of my things go to donation though.

Yep, I watch it too. It's sad.

But, I still can't stop watching.

I fell asleep watching that last night. What really freaked me out is that there will be an episode next week of a 7 year old hoarder. I didn't know the illness was that prevalent.

Like Jasmin, I am a pack rat and this show is definitely an eye opener.

I don't understand how they have food, beverages and trash every where. I definitely don't think less of them though, obviously it is an illness. When you listen to their personal stories you can sometimes figure out what triggered some of it. I have to say the sceariest was the woman who kept the food. That was dangerous. So sad.

A good chunk of AF'ers would probably fall into the category of hoarder.

I have a neighbor who hoards things that can be put on top of other things. He has huge stacks of these things sitting on top of other things everywhere in his house.

It would probably depend on who was judging. Someone who keeps barely anything and doesn't know about the illness of hoarding might consider some here to be hoarders. But the illness is "Compulsive Hoarding". Compulsive Hoarding is when you can't help but get more stuff despite having no room left. When you have near break downs while trying to throw something away or trying to give something away or sell something, etc. So a professional probably wouldn't. I'm sure we have quite a few pack rats but very few if any would be considered a Compulsive Hoarder.

It's good that they're talking about this so we know that it's not just someone who shops a lot, or keeps everything, etc. Kind of like how OCD isn't just fearing germs or washing your hands all the time or needing things in a particular order, etc. It's a lot more then that.

yes, i think there are many compulsive hoarders here as well. not as many as there are pack rats.

^It makes me clean too, that is so funny. I was going to mention that in my first reply.
Anytime I should be cleaning but just want to lay around and watch TV I should watch this, lol.

haha same here... I can't stand when stuff is left out and looks messy. I like it when people can come over and say "wow you have a nice place!" not the opposite.

i am curious how much more prevalent this disorder is in Western society compared to the rest of the world. But there doesn't seem to be any data that I can find.
