Michelle lost her fiancé, James, when police shot and killed him as Michelle looked on. Watch as Dr. Phil helps Michelle understand how her grief may be the source of her tumultuous relationship with her sisters.
“Here’s the thing: You’ve lost your fiancé, and one thing that everyone agrees about is that this was a good man,” Dr. Phil tells Michelle. “You lost this man whom you cared very much about. Then you lost your mother to cancer shortly thereafter … Sometimes, grief can turn into depression and sometimes, it can start to unravel … You have a daughter and you owe it to her for her to have the best mother that she can have and 100 percent of her mother. You have to take care of her mother.”
