Success Stories
Robin from Southern California says, "Your show has had such a huge impact on my life, especially all the shows you've done about domestic violence. Thank you, and God bless."

Missy shares, "The greatest inspiration in my life came from an episode from your show about a young woman named Kathy. Like me, she suffered from anorexia nervosa. Since watching that episode, I've
gained 25 pounds. Thank you, Dr. Phil."

"Eleven months ago, my 18-year-old daughter, Keisha, was tragically killed in a horrible car accident. I was devastated. I didn't feel like life could go on," Linda reveals. "There was an episode on w
here you were counseling people who had lost loved ones. I just thought, I can grasp everything that Keisha meant to me, and I can run with it, and that's exactly what I've done. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for what you've done for me."

Susan says her life was on a downward spiral, and she was considering end
ing her misery. "I went out, and I bought Life Strategies, and I read your words, and I started watching you all the time, and my life got better, and better and better. What can you say to a guy who saved your life?" she asks. 

Dr. Phil addresses Linda, who's sitting in the audience. "I can't tell you what it means to watch that tape," he says. "What does it feel like to you to watch it now?"

"I feel like I was drowning, and you threw me a lifeline," she says. "I didn't think life could go on, as I said, and you said, ‘You have to make a decision: You either concentrate on the one day you lost them, or you think about all
the memories and all the times you had with them, and you celebrate who they were.' That's what I've done."

"I know it's painful to share those things, but people will hear you and I talk about that right now, and it will make a difference," Dr. Phil tells her.

Dr. Phil faces Susan and says, "It meant so much to me to hear from you."

She smiles.

"When I hear stories about you fighting for your life, and Missy, you dealing with anorexia, that's why we do this show," Dr. Phil says. "I take this very, very seriously. We talk about serious things here, to people who care, and I didn't know you three when I was doing the shows and writing the books that impacted you, but it does me a lot of good to hear from y'all to know what is out there."
