I find it hard to identify with people on shows like Hoarders, even though those people living with hoarders have probably had similar experiences to me. I think it’s because in those shows you see a fast transformation from a messy, unhygienic, dangerous environment to a clean liveable home.
Every item in my parent’s home feels so immovable and permanent.
No one in my family even bothers talking about solutions anymore. I think they’ve just resigned to living that way now.
