There were plenty of shows on TV that depict people who are hoarders.
I doubt there is anyone alive who doesn’t suppose what hoarding is? I knew what it was from the time I was old enough to talk.
My aunt had a menagerie in his house. It was cluttered everywhere, however it wasn’t the familiar hoarder type of clutter. Each pile of clutter was set up as a living picture. He even had a bunch of old HVAC parts in the kitchen. They were set up like they were in an old cabin. I noticed that there were weird types of HVAC systems in every room. While my aunt was in the hospital, his son decided to surprise him as well as have the home cleaned while he was gone. He wanted there to be a study room downstairs so he didn’t need to climb the stairs. That’s when we realized his different habit of showcasing HVAC parts, spread to the upstairs. My cousin said he had never HVAC parts like this before, as well as he had been an HVAC tech for twenty years. I often wondered why he never came home as well as noticed this, so I asked. He said my aunt had started his hoarding when his mom died. He couldn’t change things back then, as well as his Mom told him to transport out. Although my aunt went to visit him, he wasn’t allowed to come back to this house. After all the HVAC parts were taken to the recycling center, we had enough money to install a current HVAC plan into the home as well as get the home livable again.
