          "My Lazy Son Has No Empathy for My Cancer" And "My Mom Acts Like My Sister and Not My Mother"

          January 11, 2019

          PLAYING “My Lazy Son Has No Empathy for My Cancer” And “My Mom Acts Like My Sister and Not My Mother”
          Vera says her 22-year-old son, Michael, always had a comfortable life. But when she got diagnosed with breast cancer in 2011, her son’s life was turned upside down.

          She says Michael is now negative, lazy, hates rules, and spends days lounging on the couch and watching daytime TV. Vera says now she’s dealing with stage-four cancer and she’s worried Michael will end up homeless after she passes away. Can Dr. Phil help this family?

          Then, Isaac says his mother, Christina, has told him multiple times that he ruined her life. Christina was just 15 years old when she gave birth to him. Christina says the problem is Isaac’s lack of respect. She claims he has sent her horrible texts calling her a monster, snotty, not wife material and saying she was never a mom to him. Isaac says their relationship is dysfunctional but this is the closest they have ever been.
