Great article!

I can totally relate to it. My parents would try their utmost to prevent people seeing our house when I was younger. I've seen some clips of homes of the less extreme hoarders and the conditions are quite similar to my house in Canada! Although my parents claim things have improved since I left, so maybe it wasn't their problem afterall ; )
