Today, Matt Paxton, Patty's Organizer will be a featured guest on our boards.
Matt will be here posting replies to your questions and comments throughout
We will be having featured guests come to the board to answer your questions the day after each Hoarders episode premieres.
I just finished watching the show and I was so impressed with both stories. I have been watching for several seasons but never knew the difference between Hoarders and Hoarding:buried alive until recently. What's the scoop? Not to put down the other show (because I'm a "Hoarder show hoarder"!!) but there seems to be so much more depth to your show. I found myself laughing and crying and I felt like the people had a better chance of recovery after being on your show. It just seems like two completely different shows. Can't wait for next week! Thanks!
Matt, the best thing about your spending part of the night in the hoard was locating the "safe spot," lying in it, and seeing the world from that view point. I felt the impact of your exclamatio
Thanks for doing this for us!

It was incredible to watch you attempt to spend the night in that hoarded house -- alone! I agree with the poster who said that this show added an incredible depth and dimension to the understanding of what hoarders live with. I can't believe you had the courage to confront this reality "up close and personal" and survived a part of the night there.... I also can't believe what hoarders themselves put up with and get used to over a period of time, in the name of this disease which you called a "pile of sadness, a pile of quitting.." in your book. It would be hard to find a more eloquent description than this one of yours.
I was wondering if there is a single house which stands out above the rest in your memory as the most densely cluttered? I still think that Arlene from Hawaii (whose husband slept in the car) had a home with the least living space imaginable left in it, but was curious how common it is to find homes like hers?
Thanks for all you have done and are doing to help shed the light on hoarding!
