Dr. Phil, I had sent an email to you several times. We really need your help. My sister has been abused for years by the state of texas. They have been pumping drugs into her system for years. It started with them giving her meds for epilepsy, my sister had never suffered from this epileptic decease. They kept pumping her with so many drugs she has spent more than thirty years fighting to get off of them and they wouldn't stop. She has a dr. Now that is kind of helping her, but she's been taken to emergency twice hanging on by a thread. To night they took her in again. They have her in ICU. We need your help.
My sister has been a very loving caring person since I was an infant and before. She married the man that did this to her. Though we don't want to say anything anymore because of her son. He feels bad when we bring it up, (Rightly so, after all it was his father). But I am a witness of how her former husband and his family treated her before all this happened to her. Please help my sister, she needs some to fight for her that knows how to go against all these doctors and medical people that have been beating her up.
Dr. Phil, you are our only hope, please don't ignore this email. I hope we don't have to write and let you know she is Goin on our next email. I beg for your help. My sister lives with mom and dad, and my Handycam brother. My parents are in their nities and they can't do anything anymore. We have more pictures but I can't up load them. Don't know how, if you need them.
Help my sister "ome back to life, help her gain her fredom, P,EASE!!!

I was bullied for the majority of my schoo years. It was on and off in some ways. I grew up in a very small community and had no option to change schools. I shudder to think what I would have suffered if social media was available in the 80's. My suggestion is to explore the bullies themselves. Why do they bully?  What is dis functional in their lives to cause them to bully. Maybe they need therapy too?  Most of my bullies apologized to me later in life. I was quiet and chubby, an easy target. Then all off a sudden I developed overnight into a pretty girl, and the bullying changed. The girls wanted me to pay for that and the bo started to bully me in a sexual nature. However, I managed to have some fun high school days which I remember fondly. A show focusing on bullies and making them accountable for their actions and some therapy. Thanks for listening to my story. Anissa Holand.

In the 1960's,bullying was 98% of the time ignored by teachers and parents,and the bullies' targets were always shamed. I spent the majority of my childhood being bullied--the schools did NOTHING. After a particularly bad incident in a class in my 8th grade year,during which the teacher looked at me like I was the one with the problem, i just couldn't take it any more,and shouted at my tormenter to stop. Guess which one of us was sent to the school psychologist for "counselling"? This idiot then told me that my tormenter,a boy ,probably "liked" me,and that "boys always teased girls they like".
Needless to say,I've carried a great deal of anger over this for years,and also lost a significant amount of respect for those in the mental health field for a long time.
 Nowadays when I see the big hullabaloo over bullying in the media, I just can't help feeling resentment that nothing,Nothing was done to help my sisters and me.
I have nothing but admiration and respect for anybody who makes a stand against this problem.
Thank you for letting me share my thoughts.

I must be crazy to question "science" of psychiatry or perhaps by chance I have many valid points about wrongs of psychiatry. If I'm crazy and Dr. Phil as a psychiatrist is in the business of helping crazy people why wont he help me? 

Truth is Psychiatry is a non science as it does not folow proper procedures, does not like to have any one question "findings" of psychiatry. In the past psychiatry has done numerous documented horendous wrongs but psychiatrist will claim that is in the past and they don't do those things any more. So psychiatrist avoid talking obout the past when the subject is wrongs done by them but want to talk all about past of the so called  "mentally ill". My cry for Dr. Phil to help me goes unanswered . Help me Dr. Phil!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Lets discuss your your imaginary "science" behind psychiatry!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

From Dr. Phil Web site -“ he continues to offer his unique tell-it-like-it-is brand of advice on a full range of topics.” While Dr. Phil has made numerous statements supporting psychiatry as “science” … He and his show are not willing to debate psychiatry. Hmm wonder why. Oh I must be “mentally ill” like those that stood against witch trials and red scare must have been witches or communist a person that stands against psychiatrist must be “mentally ill”.

DSM “mental illness criteria voted on by psychiatrist not a product of scientific methods. While suicide is considered “mental illness father of psychotherapy committed assisted suicide! Hmm. Good show and public service would be to have public debate on “science” of psychiatry!

It is often assumed some one that speaks out against psychiatry is crazy as only a crazy person would deny “mental illness”. Similarly during witch trials any one that spoke against the craziness (lack of reasoning) of those persecuting so call witches must be a witch. During red scares, (McCarthyism) any one that spoke out against those persecuting so called communist must be a communist. This is essentially circular reasoning that diverts away from real issues and facts. To classify a person as “mentally ill” boils down to name calling and places the person being labeled “mentally ill” in position to have to defend them self from a charge that is difficult at best to defend (as those accused of being witches during witch trials, or communist during red scares). It should be up to those claiming some one is “mentally ill” to come to come up with irrefutable scientific evidence of “mental illness” . Because a person did something wrong such as mass shooting does not prove “mental illness” it proves a person can do something that is wrong. What is considered wrong changes as society changes. Rape of women has greatly change over the years from cave man times when it was more normal, a few years ago when it was not considered illegal for a husband to rape a wife to the present. Similarly definitions of “mental illness” have changed with time. With transparency into the psychiatric world – understanding that forced psychotherapy will most likely result in eventual psychosis it will be understood that the supposed cure for "mentall illness" is actually the number one cause of the illness.
