          Is This Normal?

          September 11, 2009

          If your friend or family member has an unusual behavior, does that mean he or she is not normal? Dr. Phil’s guests question the extreme behavior of their loved ones and want to know if it’s normal.


          Dustin says his wife, Gina’s, obsession with buying and returning items is not normal. Her behavior has become so extreme, he’s threatening divorce. Gina says she just can’t stop.

          What’s driving Gina’s behavior?

          Find out what brings Gina to tears.
