          A Dr. Phil Checkup

          November 22, 2002

          Dr. Phil doesn’t do eight-minute cures on his show. The hard work begins when guests leave the studio. He checks back in to find out if his life strategies ” about sex, parenting, money, balance, obsessions and housework ” made a difference.
           
          Remember the newlyweds who weren’t having sex because the groom just wanted to cuddle? Did their sex life improve?

          Rod came on the show because he was addicted to spending money. At the heart of the matter, Dr. Phil pointed out, was his self-esteem.

          How is he now?



          Chet, a carpenter, left his own household projects unfinished. His wife couldn’t take it anymore. Is their marriage (and house) still intact?

          Vicki wrote in to Dr. Phil because her family’s entire life revolved around the Boy Scouts. She wanted a family vacation with plumbing!

          It was her husband’s obsession with paper that brought Jane to Dr. Phil. He’d even stash papers in hotels on business trips.

           

           

           
           
          How’s the paper packrat?


          "Overindulgence is one of the most insidious forms of child abuse," Dr. Phil told Deborah, who spoiled her teen. The point hit home. Justin has part-time job now, no longer gets everything he wants, and their relationship has improved.
