Just watched ‘Britain’s Greatest Hoarders’ on BBC iplayer.
It is just astounding. I never ever thought that such a problem existed. The amount of ‘stuff’ that these people accumulate is just amazing. And I’m incredibly impressed by the way the professionals handled the issue. They treat the ‘hoarders’ with so much respect and are really interested in working together with them to solve the problem.
My heartfelt admiration goes towards Marion for her incredible patience towards her partner, or at least that’s how BBC showed it.
I do think that ‘hoarding’ should be recognised as a psychological problem. People should be able to get treatment for it. If we can treat things like ‘stress’, we should be able to offer treatment to things like ‘hoarding’.
Do you know anyone who has a problem with hoarding?
