I'm very new to this forum, so I hope what I say is ok here and not a problem for anyone.  I have a friend I've known all my life.  She has come out of 2 recent relationships where there have been major issues.  The first, her marriage, he tried to kill her and she had me cover it up.  She is no longer with him, but he's dropped off the face of the earth and she can find him to divorce him.   The second, she was beaten 3 times before the police became involved.  He is facing serious jail time and within the last 3 months she's moved on to someone else.  He seems ok, but I'm nervous.  I don't know if she's moving on to have a man in her life, if she really loves him, if she needs psychological help...I'm feeling like I'm the one who needs the most help now.  Anyone with advice, please don't hesitate.  I promise to listen to it all.  Thanks

Really...Brittany??? You are a mother with a child and you are on the show laughing about what this monster is doing to you...you should be embarassed and ashamed of yourself for acting so foolish on National TV...Not to take away what Tim did to you...He needs help and if he dont get the help he deserves he gonna be in the jail having inmates beat him up in jail anyway..Tim is a loser anyway. Brittany, you NEED to move on and try to make the best life for you and your daughter. I am just real brother telling it like it is....I KEEP IT #ONEHUNNID

I live In Oklahoma and I gues these two are from Oklahoma. I do t know if Tim did what he was suppose to do or not. The show aired on Monday and Tim was arrested yesterday on 7 felony counts of assault,  battery, and strangulation. Now maybe she can get away and save her and her baby!!

They all say they will never do it again, but trust me, they will do it again before the next day.  I went through it for 3 years and finally walked out and never looked back.  There is still life after that.  You will find someone who will be good to you and treat you nice.  You just have to be patiend.  It took me 10 yrs, but i now have a real keeper.  They don't come any better.

i was disgusted and it chilled me to look at him.  Dr Phil showing the interrogation tape was profound.  That IS his future.  All i can hope is that she sees the light and gets as far away from him as possible.  She deserves so much better.  And he is not capable of loving or caring for anyone unfortunately.  He is too sick.
Honestly, i dont think Dr Phil thinks he can be helped.  I think he did what he could to get this man away from her the only way he could.  I do not believe he will change at all.  I believe he should be committed to a psycho ward or prison.  He cant help it but he should not be allowed to be free on the streets. he is too dangerous to the community, women and children.  He does not love her.  Don't fool yourselves people.

i agree Dr Phil went too easy. but he really had no choice in dealing with someone so sick.  He knows what he is doing.
