There were plenty of shows on television that depict people who are hoarders.
I doubt there is anyone alive who doesn’t know what hoarding is? I knew what it was from the time I was old enough to talk.
My uncle had a menagerie in her house. It was cluttered everywhere, but it wasn’t the correct hoarder type of clutter. Each pile of clutter was set up as a living picture. She even had a bunch of old HVAC parts in the kitchen. They were set up prefer they were in an old cabin. I noticed that there were weird types of HVAC systems in every room. While our uncle was in the hospital, her child decided to surprise him plus have the apartment cleaned while she was gone. She wanted there to be a kitchen downstairs so she didn’t need to climb the stairs. That’s when the people I was with and I realized her weird habit of showcasing HVAC parts, spread to the upstairs. My cousin said she had never HVAC parts prefer this before, plus she had been an HVAC tech for twenty years. I often wondered why she never came apartment plus noticed this, so I asked. She said our uncle had started her hoarding when her Dad died. She could not change things back then, plus her dad told him to transfer out. Although our uncle went to visit him, she wasn’t allowed to come back to this house. After all the HVAC parts were taken to the recycling center, the people I was with and I had enough cash to install a current HVAC plan into the apartment plus get the apartment livable again.
