I haven't ever posted my opinion before with regard to Dr Phil's treatment recommendations, but I wanted to say something regarding the second half of today's show. The woman who appeared with anxiety and panic attacks in regards to her fear of germs.  

My daughter, age 23 suffers from the same fears, along with the woman's son's fear of vomiting, called emitaphobia. My daughters anxiety could very well be genetic, but I believe that certain traumatic events play a big role on her fears. My daughter has been treated with  counseling and is on medication.  Shenis going much better and is able go lead a normal life   

Having said all that, the advice and result that Dr Phil prescribed just didn't seem right. He was so focused on her doing away with getting rid of germs and being exposed to the outside and dirt builds immunity and if she just realized that and embraced it, she would get better. 


I hope that Dr Phil prescribed some type of psychotherapy for that women to face her fears and any past trauma or upsetting event in her life.  

Thank you for reading, Respectfully,  Sandra

I really love your show. I've watched since you were on Oprah.  Recently I see that your family has taken up different endeavors which seem to have become quite successful. Examples: Dr. on Demand, Robin's skin care line, etc.  

My issue is with the 15 minute infomercials that are thrown in at the end of the show.  It is REALLY a turn off and for a quite a while I stopped even watching..It seems w/all your success, you must have a healthy income and are quite well off...Can't Robin afford to pay to hawk her stuff on QVC or some such similar outlet.  Many feel you're contaminating your show by throwing this stuff in at the end.  I actually just turn off once I see you're going that route again near the end of a show.  

In closing, respectfully I know you have helped many people and I think that is great. You have contributed much to humanity by doing so and I applaud all you have done.  Please try to keep the show pure and intact for those of us who watch to learn about issues that are important in today's society. Don't push that tacky commercial stuff down our throats.  


thanks....

I wouldn't do it.  it sounds like he wants a mommy or parent to "take care of him" .  Guard your privacy and your life. Letting someone move in is a BIG committment and could forever change ur relationship w/ that person.  Good fences makes good neighbors which is a good way of viewing it.  He is looking for an enabler..Don't do it..Just my advice..Good luck

Now he wants to come stay at my new place when I get there 2-3 nights a wekk all because he hates where he is living because he wont find his own place to live. What should I do with him?

I love watching you everyday since I am disabled & home most of the time. I have enjoyed seeing Robin's products become successful. She is such a poised, beautifully spoken lady. It is always fun to see you all do a giveaway, involving the audience.  I would like to make a suggestion that, on days you do an audience giveaway, you give your at-home viewers the opportunity to win the same product you gave to the audience. Robin's products are very high-end and expensive, making it difficult for some people to be able to afford them. To win one, would be like winning the lottery! Thank you so much for your consideration.  Have a fabulous day!

In reference to today's show, what is the statute of limitations in the state where this abuse took place and why aren't mother and daughter pursuing pressing charges now?

Mother really needs a parenting class and a good slap. Daughter needs to be put in a strict boarding school and should be absolutely ashamed and embarrassed of her bahavior. I hope no one give these two fools any attention!!!!!

Dr. Phil,


Looks like I am not the only one that agrees you should stick to your show and professional advice and stop promoting your son's book, your others son's music and most recently, Robin's skincare line. Let them all earn their accolades by themselves and stick to your degree and professional education. 


I enjoy your show so much and value your advice but I feel like you are now a marketing quack for your your family and are doing this for the best interest of them.


Don't loose a good thing!


Thanks,


Tracy
