          Assault Survivor: ‘I Would Really Like To Get Back To The Healthy Person That I Was’


          January 4, 2018

          Tammy says even though her former fiancé, Chris, is currently in prison for assaulting her with a meat tenderizing hammer two years ago, she hasn’t been able to move past the trauma of being attacked.

          TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Life in crisis?

          “For the New Year, I would really like to get back to the healthy person that I was,” she says. “I want to feel confident at work. I want to be able to sleep in my bed. I don’t want to be afraid to leave my house.”

          “I would like my mother to push herself to be herself again,” says Tammi’s 19-year-old daughter, Taylor, adding “I just want my old mom back.”

          When Dr. Phil refers Tammi to the Lawlis Peavey Psycho Neuro Plasticity (PNP) Center to help her in her journey toward recovery, does she agree to go?
