I just do not understand hoarding/hoarders. I am watching the show and I have no sympathy for these people. They live in mice feces and piss!
I do understand it is a mental illness, but these people are rude, selfish and uncaring for their families. Some of them lose their children, rather than get help.
**EDIT After posting this and reading the replies, I do understand a bit more and certainly do not mean to hurt anyone. I apoligize for speaking and not truly knowing where the person comes from. Maybe the show stages way more that we do not see and makes these people seem way more selfish then they are. But I still will not understand choosing things over your children and family. But I can be more compassionate about it.
