A True Statement?

I have a decent knowledge of psychology and I have seen a great number of reality shows about hoarding (including Hoarders and Hoarders: Buried Alive) and based on this, I am prepared to make a blanket statement:

All hoarders feel starved for physical affection, specifically sex.


A) If the hoarder is married, the couple should enter therapy immediately if not sooner. Most often the two should spend some time apart.  Usually hoarding means your marriage is dead and you ought to seriously consider divorcing.

B) If the hoarder is single, he or she should enter therapy

C) Most likely, the hoarder needs to lose weight, or at the least regularly engage in some light exercise.

D) The hoarder needs to have sex.  Details are secondary.

These are the FIRST FOUR THINGS that should happen within a week or so of beginning treatment for acute hoarding.  Then bring in the professional organizers and 1-800-GOT-JUNK?
