Sandra claims her 44-year-old daughter, Shaela, became irrational, paranoid and started exhibiting “off the wall” behaviors following a medical emergency four years ago.

“Shaela’s entire world completely fell apart,” says Sandra. “She was no longer able to work and had to resign from her job. Child Protective Services got involved. Her daughter was emancipated and her son lives with his father and also spends time at our home.”

Sandra’s husband, Bobby, says they stepped in to help. “She couldn’t pay any of her bills. We paid her bills. She was finally evicted from her home. It’s heartbreaking.”

Sandra says they bought her an RV to live in but claims she’s destroyed it – twice.

“We’re at our wits’ end now,” says Bobby. He says they don’t know what Shaela might do – or when. “You have a conversation and you don’t know if she’s fixing to explode; if she’s going to get mad, how she’s going to take it - and you’re walking on eggshells when you talk to her.”

Why does he say Shaela is no longer welcome in their home? Tune in to Thursday’s Dr. Phil.
