          Dr. Phil Shares Theories As To Why Woman May Believe She Is Going Blind


          December 3, 2017

          Jonathan says that his ex-wife, Jessica, believes she’s going blind. He claims she’s taken more than 900 pictures of her eyes to prove they have “shifted” and that she has episodes where she rocks back and forth and walks in circles to ease the pain in her head.

          TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Is your family a stressed mess?

          Jonathan, however, says he doesn’t believe his ex-wife is really going blind and he says multiple doctors have agreed. His mother, Kathleen, claims Jessica may be faking the whole thing” because she wants attention.

          In the video above from Monday’s episode of Dr. Phil, Dr. Phil offers Jonathan and Kathleen theories as to why Jessica may believe she is going blind.

          “I believe she believes this 100%,” Dr. Phil says. “I wrote a book a long time ago where I talked about the 10 laws of life and Life Law number 6 is there is no reality, only perception. Her reality is what she perceives to be going on. She perceives she is going blind.”
