Lola16 April 1, 2014 Share April 1, 2014 Quote Fifty-year-old Dee says that at 17, she was drugged, kidnapped and forced to work in a brothel for three months — and she fears her 20-year-old daughter, Lacey, may be headed toward the same fate. She says Lacey moved out of the house at 15, has been in abusive relationships, got pregnant for the first time at 16 and is addicted to marijuana and prescription pills — a habit Lacey supports by erotic dancing. She also says Lacey has anger issues and often lashes out at family members. What does she say started her daughter’s downward spiral? And, does Dee take any ownership in the situation? Lacey’s older sister, Devin, calls Lacey a “ticking time bomb” and says her lifestyle is putting a strain on the whole family. Who does she say she blames for her sister’s behavior? Lacey says she feels betrayed and misunderstood by her family and claims she’ll never make the same mistakes as her mother, because she’s smarter. Still, she admits she abuses drugs and needs help getting her life back on track. Dr. Phil digs into Lacey’s past and uncovers a source of pain. Will she grab onto the lifeline he offers and put an end to her self-destructive behavior? http://www.drphil.com/shows/show/2197 Holy moly. This was a shitshow of epic proportions. Phil laces (ha!) into the mother for being a dumbass enabler and she was completely blindsided. Then the methy daughter comes on and goes on about how everyone in the world betrays her (even the McDonald's worker who forgot she didn't want onions) and that's why she does drugs (not a lot, just a little, all the time, you know, it's not a problem, but it is, but rehab is for junkies and I'm not one, but I need help, and I'm not on any now, except all the ones you found in my drug test this morning) and that's why her life isn't good. Dr. Phil has her older sister on and she barely says anything. Lacey turns to her, glares and mouths "I warned you". The sister looks shaken. The mother thought Dr. Phil was going to nominate her for saint of the year. Boy, was she shocked. The daughter thought Dr. Phil was going to baby her and tell her she was right about everything and wave some magic wand. The daughter is now 20 and is so angry. Her life experiences suck big time. She keeps putting herself into situations where bad things are inevitable. Then she gets to cry victim. Phil wants to do out patient therapy with Lacey. It will be interesting if they do a follow-up in a year. 2 Link to comment
