          Weekly Ambulance Rides, Nearly 100 Doctors: "My Mother Thinks She is Dying But It’s All in Her Head"

          June 28, 2017

          PLAYING Weekly Ambulance Rides, Nearly 100 Doctors: “My Mother Thinks She is Dying But It’s All in Her Head”
          Adrienne says her mother, Cathy’s, severe anxiety has her believing she is dying every day from a life-threatening illness.

          Adrienne says in just the past six months, her mother has seen over 75 doctors and specialists, and called 911 and been taken by ambulance to the hospital repeatedly. After over 100 blood tests, CAT scans, and MRIs, Adrienne says Cathy refuses to accept the non-life threatening results. Adrienne says her mother refuses to live in her own home and has moved in with her Aunt Deborah because she believes she needs her vitals monitored by someone constantly. Adrienne says her mother refuses to believe she is suffering from anxiety and believing she is dying has become her identity. Deborah, who says she’s had enough of chauffeuring her sister to doctor’s appointments and following the ambulances to the hospital, is desperate for Cathy to move out. 

          Dr. Phil also meets two moms, Angie and Kathie, who say they both want to lose weight but struggle because they love eating together! Then meet the host of the Emmy Award-winning show, The Doctors, Dr. Travis Stork, who gives healthy advice based on his latest book, The Lose Your Belly Diet: Change Your Gut, Change Your Life.
