Grisly Hoard of Cadaver Pads

Dr. Becky Beaton is one tough psychologist who has assisted authorities in treating people who have psychological problems.  She is a leading expert who helps severely disturbed people to get through. She thought she has seen it all.

That is, until she saw the house of a woman who was suffering from hoarding disorder. In that house they found a collection of pads used in funeral homes for absorbing fluids from the dead bodies. It was quite gruesome and disgusting to say the least.

Here is part of an article by Debbie Emery for the, “She would do it at a funeral home and gather pads that were used for cadavers to absorb the fluids and was bringing them home and putting them on the floor so that the dog could go to the bathroom on them – it was disgusting!” revealed Dr. Beaton, as she described her worst case to date.

Like many sufferers, a lot of times there are mental illnesses that accompany the hoarding. In this case, “she was bipolar and it had gone on for so long that she had become disillusioned.”

When it comes to treating the condition, experts have to treat both the desire to hoard and prevent them from repeating their dysfunctional behavior. “You have to teach them not to acquire things, then you have to help them with the anxiety of letting go, then you also need to find out if they need ongoing therapy and medication,” explained the psychologist.”

I am so impressed with the job that Gregg and Karen did for my aunt's home. Not only did they take the time to explain thorougly what they were going to do, but they did EXACTLY as they promised.

We never expected to get the sales price for the house that we ended up getting. If you had seen my aunt's home before they started, you would know why. By the time the job was done, the house looked totally transformed.

Needless to say... I highly recommend their services!
