Anderson Cooper Show, “Hoarders & How To Free Yourself From Clutter


MI Association of Code Enforcement Officers


OCD Foundation Michigan
October 6, 2007, 11:30-3:00 p.m: Rainbow Luncheon, Warren, MI
Featured Speaker:  Elizabeth Nelson
“Children of Hoarders:  The View From The Other Side”

News-Media-Educational Videos

Pictures that Nelson showed Newschannel 3 of the inside of her mother’s home show the disturbing and complex issues associated with the disease. Trash is piled so deep that her parent’s basement can no longer be used. Upstairs, the family room that was once a place for the family to get together is now off limits to anyone except Nelson’s mother and father.

“I realized that my mother had completely blocked my father’s access to a bathroom in the house,” said Nelson. “It’s a complicated story, but he was using a portable urinal in the living room, and talking to her she seemed to rationalize, this was perfectly okay.”

      Check the Resources page on this site for some info/links. If there are kids involved and you are concerned about their safety/welfare, you could call the local child welfare agency and file a report. Good luck and let us know how things turn out, if you want to.

    I am the daughter of a hoarder, but it is to late for him. He died 01/07/2012.
    Now I am left to clean it up, I have some help from friends & family. But what
    I don’t have is a truck & a place to haul off all that I can’t sell or give away.
    I live in Homer, Louisiana. I have filed 4 trash cans + extra every week since
    Thanksgiving. Also someone is hauling off all metal items. I have a little more
    in the house to do, then I have to work on the Attic, 2 car garage & 2 car
    carport & storage shed & 2 acre yard. generalstore213@att.net

    • He Generalstore213,
      My condolences on the loss of your father.

      I’m sorry you are now facing the task of cleaning things out.
      Is it ok for me to post a  request for a truck and dumping help for you wherever I can? Donna
