If you have never watched this show on A&E, you should try to tune in for an episode. Every time I watch it I want to wash my house down in bleach. I understand that hoarding is a form of mental illness but the last couple of episodes have literally made me sick to my stomach.
This man has 5 billion rats just running rampant in his home. His back story is heartbreaking but man…rats chewing up the walls, mattresses, furniture?? Oh no no no…..I end up talking to the TV every time I watch it. I could never live like that.
Have any other bees watched Hoarders, and if so, thoughts?

Oh I know! Every time I see it, it makes me so sad! Because I know it is an actual problem and they can’t do anything about it with out help and even then… I could never live like that, or at least thats what I would like to think. Have you seen the animal hoarders? Even more sad =(

@cyndistar3: The lady last week with all of the animals and birds in filthy cages was unbelievable. I think my mouth was open in disbelief for most of that episode.
@UpstateCait: Me either…it’s just so mind boggling.

Yea I can’t watch it either. My FI worked on an ep of Oprah with a couple who were hoarders; they had so much stuff their bedroom was literally soundproof…like a tomb, because of all the STUFF they had. The episode had someone help them clean out their house, and they arranged it all in a warehouse [they ended up having a dollar sale to get rid of the sellable stuff]. Anyway, there was so much stuff it took up 2 whole rooms of the warehouse. It was crazy!

OMG…YES!! I’m watching it. It’s FREAKIN’ disgusting.
It’s one of those things that you can’t watch..but you can’t look away either. I just don’t understand how it gets that point from some clutter here & there to having trash/stuff EVERYWHERE and you can no longer walk around your house. I feel so bad for the family members, esp the kids, who put up with that and have to live in those conditions.
That would NEVER happen in my house. I get pissy whnn the FI leaves a empty soda can on the counter or coffee table. LOL!

I was actually talking to my dad about this the other day. I have it set to record on the DVR and I haven’t seen the rat one yet but I have seen several where the people end up pooping in bags and filling up rooms with them. They say it just got to be too much, etc. How does it get to that point?!?

Yes, it is fascinating show.

I stopped watching it after seeing an episode where a lady had been pooping on the floor because she couldn’t get into her bathroom. It’s sad, but my stomach can’t handle it.

There are no words to describe the rats. Or poop bags. None.

@Aubergold: yes ma’am. This one lady was staying at her mom’s old house or something like that and began pooping on garbage bags and filled up the whole bathroom or something. Matt Paxton always get stuck in the nastiest situations.
