          Admitted Hoarder Says ‘I’ve Put Up Quite A Few Walls’

          Tracy says her mother, Robin’s, rented home is so overrun with animals and objects – including trash – that she’s being evicted.

          TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: At your final breaking point?

          Robin, 71, admits she hoards animals and objects and says she is “appalled” at the way she lives. She says she was physically and emotionally abused as a child, and that her mother wouldn’t allow her to have any possessions of her own; so finds it “nearly impossible” to throw anything away now.

          On Wednesday’s episode, Coach Mike (Mike Bayer), a life and personal development coach, Dr. Phil Advisory Board member and author of the upcoming book, “Best Self: Be You, Only Better,” visits with Robin at her home.

          “How is it for you to accept help?” he asks Robin.

          “I’ve put up quite a few walls because in the early days I was the target child,” she responds.
