Jen says Emma has anxiety, depression, and has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder. “It’s heartbreaking,” she says.
The couple says they give Emma the medication that she was prescribed to treat her issues, but claim she also chooses to self-medicate with “weed,” and they can’t stop her.
Jen insists they’ve been trying to get Emma to stop using “for years” but claims Emma says it helps her live the way she’s “supposed to.”
When Dr. Phil tells them, “You’ve got the tail wagging the dog,” how do Bill and Jen respond?
