          ‘I’m Terrified My 9-Year-Old Daughter Will Either End Up Killing Herself – Or Someone Else’


          December 13, 2016

          “I’m very frustrated because it seems nobody knows what’s wrong with Makenze,” says mom, Lisa, about her 9-year-old daughter.

          TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Is unbelievable drama dividing your family?

          Lisa says Makenze has seen five psychiatrists and three therapists since the age of 5 and has been put on a number of medications over the years to treat everything from A.D.H.D. and O.D.D (Oppositional Defiance Disorder) to Disruptive Mood Disorder. She says a recent MRI indicated there was nothing physically wrong with her child’s brain.
