          TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Have family drama that needs that help?

          “She is very mentally and verbally abusive to me,” Jordan claims. “My mom has called me disgusting and unattractive.”

          The 23-year-old, who weighs 75 pounds and has bones protruding from her body, has been told she could be on the verge of death, but she says she wants to lose more weight. She also claims that part of the reason she hasn’t gotten better is because her mom triggers her disease, and she continues restricting out of spite.

          “My mom has made me feel unwanted,” she says.

          Angela admits that her relationship with Jordan has “hit rock bottom.”

          “I’m pretty angry right now because I really hate the way that she treats me,” Angela says. “Jordan’s called me a bitch, threatened to hit me … Jordan has told me that I don’t have a caring bone in my body and what a horrible mother I am.”

          Dr. Phil weighs in with his thoughts.

          “Her currency is to be unhealthy. Her currency is to be emaciated. Her currency is to be so shockingly thin that people go, ‘Oh my God, she’s sick,’” he says. “And she says she does it because it pisses you off, and there’s not a damn thing you can do about it, because it is the ultimate control.”
