Vanessa says she’s “knocking on death’s door.” She says she’s physically and mentally afraid of food, weighs only 90 pounds, and is convinced if she eats most foods she will choke and die. Her husband, Michael, says he’s at his wits’ end because Vanessa is slowly killing herself. Michael says he wants her to seek help now. Can Dr. Phil help Vanessa before it’s too late?
