How does my Husband feel about my Hoarding?

This is question I get asked a lot:  “How does your Husband feel about your hoarding?” My husband is patient, laid back and supportive in what I do.  Except my hoarding, he hates my hoarding.  He gets very frustrated with it and told me the top four things that frustrate him.  First, he has a difficult time finding things because nothing is organized.  Sometimes he has to purchase something we already have because it will take him “months” to find it again.  And wasting money is not one of his favorite things.  Secondly, he gets very upset tripping over piles of crap.  That one REALLY frustrates him.  Thirdly, he just gets tired at looking at all piles of clutter.  Then he gets upset that it doesn’t bother me! (Until recently when I started this journey) Lastly, he wishes he can help me clean my piles but he cannot.  He can’t because it will always create a fight between us.  I always get overwhelmed and anxious and he just wants to keep cleaning.  So he gave up on helping me clean so I would not get upset from my OCD hoarding panic attacks.   Attached below is my vlog where I give more details about our relationship and the strain it has on our marriage:
