I really enjoy watching Dr. Phil. He's one smart man, and his in-your-face delivery of common sense is what some people need to get it to sink in. It's sad, but seemingly true. Some folks just don't get why their life is so awful. When he can turn their view inwards at themselves and allow them to see that they're the ones controling the buttons of life, well that's a good thing.
I like the Family in Crisis II series with Chris and Stacey. I would like to smother Stacey with a pillow! That woman is so easy to hate! I wish her hubby would just run away. Now, SHE'S Satan! I also was able to lose 15 pounds on Dr. Phil's weight loss challenge diet. It's nothing drastic; just sensible eating tips. It helped me plan my meals and count calories. Everything in moderation, that's my belief. And it worked!
Dr. Phil was on Larry King last night, and it was perfect timing, as far as my family was concerned. My stomach has been in knots after hearing about the horrible beheading incident in Iraq, and my 14-year-old daughter was very upset and concerned about it, but I was at a complete loss at what to tell her. (Parenting is the hardest job in the world.) Dr. Phil sat with Larry King and discussed helping parents explain things like this to their kids. He helped the viewers understand their feelings of anxiety, depression, anger, etc., and made me, for one, able to deal with my emotions a lot better. I'm very grateful for Dr. Phil and that interview.
