Why oh why do I watch these shows like Intervention on A&E? Does anyone else watch it? The new season starts next Monday but last night I was up until 11pm after getting sucked into watching back to back episodes.
Then....I go to sleep thinking about all of this.
Last night's 2nd episode featured a man named Brett who was an alcoholic who lost his family and job to booze but refused to go to rehab until they threatened to hospitalize him.
He got sober, much to his children's delight, but 80 days into treatment they found out he had cancer and went home and died 3-weeks later.
I'm not going to lie....I cried... All by myself(Brad refuses to watch the show)in my bedroom..crying..
The show ended with his son(who appeared to around 11-years old) saying that at least his Dad didn't die an alcoholic but instead he died a Dad. It broke my heart.
Did anyone else see this episode? My Mom has preached at me through the years not to watch trash like this because it's depressing and it does nothing to help foster a positive attitude.
Yet....I still watch it.
Another show I find myself watching is Hoarders(also on A&E). My blogging friend Mrs. Lenzer talks about this on her blog today saying she can't get herself to watch it.
So..why..why?? do I watch this trash if it does nothing but make me sad?
