DP Family Returns: Alex Excuses: Moving Forward

"Where Do You Think Your Life is Headed?"

Alexandra describes a normal day in her life. She says she goes to sleep around 12:30 or 1:00 a.m., gets up at about 9:30 or 10:00 a.m. and loads up on breakfast that the motel serves. She usually spends the day by herself, watching TV or doing crossword puzzles, unless she has somewhere to be. "I have to wash my clothes in the bathtub," she reveals. "It's rather aggravating and irritating." She adds that she plans to register for school.

 

Dr. Phil asks her, "Isn't there a part of you that says, ‘Dr. Phil, I will do whatever it takes, if you're telling me I can get my life back. I can get out of the alley, out of the gutter, out of the truck. I can have a good, healthy life with my children'? Wouldn't you do that?"

 

Alexandra nods and says, "Yeah."

 

"Where do you think your life is headed?" Dr. Phil asks.

 

"For me, I have everything I need for school, except a piece of paper, from my mom, which I will have, and I will be attending classes this time next week," she shares.

 

[AD]On video, Alexandra visits two schools. She reveals, "I could have been registered and been ready to start class on Monday, but I needed a simple tax information paper from my mom, and she is too busy to grab it and fax it. Now, I run the risk of not fitting into the class, because she wants to be a pain in the ass."

 

In an attempt to find a new place to live, Alexandra visits three houses. Will any meet her standards?
