Hoarding in Cincinnati – Help with Junk Removal

The popular cable channel TLC introduced the phenomenon of hoarding too many Americans through their show “Hoarding: Buried Alive.” On this reality program cameras were taken inside the home of hoarders whose lives have gotten out of control through their obsessive-compulsive behavior. In most instances these hoarders were in complete denial as to their surroundings. Some of these stories were especially tragic when there were innocent animals involved like the house that was overrun with rats while another one was swarming with rabbits. It takes a lot of coordination between professional junk haulers and trained psychotherapist to help these hoarders regain a sense of normalcy. Sadly sometimes after a thorough cleanup these folks go right back to their old habits.

Now TLC has a new series called “My Crazy Obsession” that makes a distinction between a hoarder and a collector. To the casual observer these are indistinguishable. The folks featured on “My Crazy Obsession” have taken collecting to new heights such as the couple that have $1 million invested in their Cabbage Patch doll collection or the woman who moved from Puerto Rico to Orlando so she could be closer to the Magic Kingdom and the object of her collecting obsession Mickey Mouse.

There’s a little bit of a collector in all of us although we certainly don’t take it to such crazy heights. Thanks to the iPod we’ve all become well versed at collecting music and playlists. If you were to transfer these music collections into actual CDs or singles it might look just like one of those crazy obsessions!
