Thanks for posting Hepcat, that was really interesting. Freaky, but interestingOriginally Posted by hepcat;4065447;
As for the other hoarders, I think I'm definitely in the minority from a lot of the posters on this thread because I feel sorry for the ones living in filth. It's way more than just massive laziness. Really, we're all disgusted by it, but who indeed would live like that without some serious mental issues? Dead animals, rotting food, feces? It's so far beyond "I don't feel like taking out the trash today" or "I'll get the toilets next week." That's not just letting things get out of hand and giving up, that's a disease. To be in such denial of the extent of the problem...as most of them seem to be...just underscores how serious the problems are. It almost seems pointless to go in there and do the massive clean-up if there is not some sort of agreement they will get therapy afterwards...'cause you just know without that component of "help" those people are going to be stuck right back in the same situation. All it will take is time.
