    Dear USMB,

    I confess that I am addicted to the show "Hoarding: Buried Alive".

    It is a horror show.

    The hoarders lives are so out of control and messy it give me anxiety attacks, which are relieved only when the pack rats start to get rid of their crap. I have even had a nightmare after watching one episode - but I can't stop! I want to see more hoarders go through interventions to tidy up their lives.

    *shamefully*

    My wife watches that one. She calls it therapy.

    I watched it and it reminds me of growing up with my manic depressive mother.

    I guess that's why I tend to go on throw everything away binges every couple of months. I tend to save everything digitally instead. My new computer has a terabyte of internal memory and i have another 1.5 terabytes of external hard drive storage. No clutter on my desk.

    It is therapy! I cleaned all the junk off my coffee table after watching the last episode.

    My mother is like Felix on the Odd Couple - our house was so clean when I was a kid that one friend said it was "Scary"! I'm not nearly as compulsive about neatness as my mother, but I do find it calming to have the house in reasonable tidy shape.

    I also feel inspired to go through the closets to make a run to Salvation Army soon.

    Seeing how the kids are affected by their mothers' hoarding is beyond sad. (Same thing with that program "I Eat 33,000 Calories A Day".)

    I am addicted to Real Housewives of New York City, and New Jersey.. The women are idiots, and immature, but I love it. :redface:

    I've never watched those - but it certainly sounds like "Guilty Pleasure Viewing".

    I tend to like programs where the person gets some help, i.e. What Not To Wear. Watching idiots continue to be idiots without learning anything get dull quite quickly.

    I like watching Holmes for Homes on HGtv.. He fixes bad contract jobs, for either little or no cost for the homeowners. ONe episode the person who did the remodel pretty much made on big fire hazard in these people's basement. They had little children, and their house was very close to catching on fire.
