          “You have lost yourself.”

          “I’m not the crazy one.”


          Bipolar Opposites

          Dr. Phil continues his conversation with Charles. Find out what Dr. Phil says is in the couple’s past that should draw compassion, but Charles uses as a reason for his attacks. Plus, Dr. Phil explores a theory as to why Charles was attracted to Renee.
