Lori and Bob say they are living in a cluttered mess. They say they haven’t unpacked in the seven years they’ve lived in their home, dishes are piled in the sink, and their smoke detectors have been beeping for two years because they can’t get to them to change the batteries.
“Bob does not believe he’s a hoarder. It’s not up to me to tell him that, but the signs are everywhere,” Lori says. “I have never seen Bob intentionally get rid of things. Even if they’re broken, he keeps them thinking maybe we’ll fix them.”

“I don’t have time to do what I need to do,” Bob says.
Hear why Bob also blames their cat for the way they live in the video above.
