          Teen Says She Wants To ‘Strangle The Hell’ Out Of Her Mother


          April 18, 2017

          Samantha claims her mother, Krystina, was drunk and neglectful while she was growing up. The 19-year-old, who is six months pregnant, says the two have a contentious relationship and she just wants her mother’s support.

          “My mother is very negative. She has to dominate and control everything I do. In many ways, she’s a crappy mom,” says Samantha, claiming that her mom often starts arguments with her after she’s been drinking. “She calls me names — whore, tramp. She’s told me before that I’ll never amount to anything but a stripper.”

          Samantha says that when she became pregnant, her relationship with her mom worsened. “She threatened to push me down the stairs and stab me in the stomach. That made me so scared,” she claims.

          Samantha, who suffers from type 1 diabetes, says she considered a medical abortion due to the complications she or her child may experience from the disease, but she chose to keep her child.

          “Very much, I am stuck between a rock and a hard place. I needed my mom’s help but I’m worried how she’ll parent my child because she’s parented me in the wrong way,” Samantha says. “I want to strangle the hell out of her and never see her again.”

          Krystina says she tries to help her daughter by providing her with food and enough money for her insulin because she is extremely worried about her daughter’s health. She admits that she likes to have a glass of wine when she gets home from work, but denies drinking to excess.

          On Tuesday’s episode of Dr. Phil, hear from Krystina, who says she fears for her daughter’s life and the life of her unborn grandchild because she claims Samantha is not managing her disease and is putting both their lives in danger.
