Childhood abuse survivor Lauren says she can’t listen to country music because that’s what her mother and stepfather played to drown out her screaming. “When I hear it, it just all comes back.”
On Wednesday’s Dr. Phil
, Lauren talks about her ongoing struggles with addiction, anxiety, depression, paranoia, and multiple attempts to commit suicide because of the trauma she suffered as a child.
Lauren’s girlfriend, Janae, is also brought into the discussion. Then on Thursday, Lauren’s older sister, Blake, discusses what she knew about Lauren’s ongoing abuse, and why she felt powerless to help.
