Latest Entry: Entry Title
Hi everyone! I am so pleased to FINALLY be joining the Dr. Phil community. After watching his show for now going  on 16 seasons and having watched him on Oprah prior to him getting this show, you'd think it was about time! Anyway, I just want to introduce myself just a little. I am a 54 year old Mom and Mimi and Wife from south central Oklahoma. I live in the town where I was born and raised, but prior to 2012 I lived in Florida for 12 years and Ft.Worth, Texas for 4 years. I had a long and wonderful career as a trial paralegal until my health knocked me out of my passion in 2008. I do the best I can and try to always go through life with a smile on my face and am a "giver" at heart. I must have my daily dose of Dr. Phil and also read, watch anything about the law and solving tough cases. I love my little family (all 4 of us) and do everything I can to make sure that they know how very much they are loved and cherished. I have several "friends" but i have one friend who is my family and has been my loyal, non-judgmental, sister/friend for 38 yrs now. I am sure I will learn to better navigate this site in the coming days! Until then, y'all have a blessed and wonderful week!

OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!  I just saw the commercial for this.  I cannot wait to see her.  I love her.  What a tragic story.  I wondered what happened to her, I knew she had mental health issues, and didnt know what happened.  I hope she gets the treatment she needs. 

She has an amazing voice.  Please Dr. Phil, help her  We need her.

Latest Entry: Self Matters
I guess it pays to wait. I THOUGHT I was getting the book for $11.14, BUT I had Amazon credits worth $10 (that I didn't know about). So I paid $1.14 for the best darn e-book I have found! I am going to get it in hard copy and carry it everywhere!

I have been in talk therapy for 45+ years and medicated for the same. NO therapist ever asked me any of this. I blame that on "state funded insurance". Altho I am thankful for my insurance, don't get me wrong, but those therapist deal with SO many patients; I imagine it would be hard to individualize therapy. "Just keep them from killing themselves and move on" seems to be the norm.

I have been, what I call, "clear" for almost 5 years. No meds, no talk therapy. And I am miserable. So since I love Phil, I thought I'd give him a try. Frankly, I wanted to earlier but couldn't afford the book!! So, off we go!

Latest Entry: RED CROSS
I think it is aweful that you are donating to the Red Cross. Many people on facebook gave their opinions about the Red Cross. My mother said that when my father came back from the war and the Red Cross greeted them and welcomed them back but made them pay for the coffee and donuts.  I think that is appauling. Check out facebook and see what others experienced. I would never donate to the Red Cross.

Is this all there is? Work, home, a crappy marriage, uncertainty? Everyday is a struggle to be positive.

Latest Entry: Hello!

Hello all! I am new to this community thing. I am not even sure what I have to say about anything but figured I would at least share a few of my writings from recent things going on in my life (or not going on). So if you are intersted in reading my random ramblings (mostly poetic for some reason), then please feel free to read and let me know what you think. I haave never shared my stuff with anyone other than my husband. So please try not to be to bruttal. I happen to write for theriputic reasons for my anxiety, major depression, and ODD. I think that its time I try to share with some others out there. Thank you for reading if you are planning on it and read on in my next entry.

Latest Entry: Help me to understand
I can speak for myself in this issue and that is to say this. If I suspected anything like this was happening I would go to the authorities until something was done. I can not understand how these things keep happening. I see posts of complaints as to what DR Phill didn't ask or why three years yet I am not seeing people on here explaining what they are going to do from now on if they see or hear abuse. I am a mouthy person and If I see someone in a store or playground doing any kind of abuse I go to the people in charge of these kids and I do whatever in my power to find out who they are and stop them from abusing these kids and even animals. I will not sit back and allow it to continue and I have seen people just walk on by. There was an instance I came across in my neighborhood years ago I heard screams, crying and I heard what sounded like chains dragging across the floor. I was only 11 at the time. I told my mother and I told my sibling. I knew I wasn't old enough at the time to do anything and unfortunately, they laughed at me thinking I was joking. One day my sister heard the noise because at least she did listen to me. Later found out the girl in the chains was a mentally challenged child and for her protection, she had to be kept restrained is what we were told. So now what would you actually do in this situation? Walk away say nothing is wrong. Allow whatever is going on to continue? It is so sad to say but so many would be happy with the explzinztion and three years later find out the little girl needed our help.
