Hoarders. So many of us watch shows about hoarding and find a little guilty relief in realizing we're not as bad as those people. At least, we don't think we are. Or are we?
Hoarders syndrome is a documented neuro-psychological disorder closely linked to Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder. What's that mean? It means that if you hold onto items for sentimental value, it's probably not a problem. People who suffer from hoarding aren't just "messy by nature." They need professional help and probably won't get better without it.
