I started watching Hoarders as something to do. I had kept the exerience with my mom in the back of my mind for several years. After it started sinking in to me I realized the reasons why she turned into a hoarder. It was very revealing and educating.
I know why people turn to hoarding. Hard lessons in life, unresolve issues with family, heart breaking episodes, loss of loved ones. I have had some devastating episodes happen where I have wanted to just give up. I have been looking around my house today
