Dr Phil Sends Amanda to PNP Center For Neurological Treatment
In 2010, Amanda was in a 72 hour detention and the doctor that released her diagnosed her as bipolar. She and her family have not gotten along in years and there are serious allegations of physical and emotional abuse in their home. Rianne is accused of kicking Amanda in the stomach when she was pregnant and Amanda is accused of being a horrible person. They’re such a jolly bunch of people.
Dr Phil: Undiagnosed Maladaptive Neurological Problem
Dr Phil told the family that their rage and their treatment is not constructive. If Amanda is bipolar, and Dr Phil has serious doubts that she is, then their behaviors border on abuse. What he does know is that Amanda has anxiety issues and suffers major panic attacks. He doesn’t have a label for it, but believes that she has a maladaptive neurological problem.
