Dr. Phil: Feeling Completely Betrayed
Dr. Phil has been sitting down with a woman named Dee, who says her daughter Lacey is completely out of control. Lacey has already said she’s felt betrayed by everyone. Her mother, the police, the people at the rehab. Dr. Phil said there’s only one common denominator and that’s Lacey.
“How do you think your life is working for you?” he asked her.
“Not good at all,” she said.
Dr. Phil: Pregnant Three Times By 20
Lacey has been pregnant three times in her life, the first when she was 16. But she has no children. Lacey explained that the first pregnancy was a miscarriage. The second pregnancy there was multiple complications with twins. One was stillborn and the other was in the NICU. But neither one made it.
Dr. Phil: Losing Control Of Life After Losing Her Twins
When Lacey was pregnant with her twins, she turned her life around. She got her GED and tested out of school with honors. But she had major complications with her twins.
Dee said that when you lose babies in the hospital, they dress them and let you hold them. So Lacey held her babies in their nice clothes in the hospital.
“After I lost my twins, I didn’t care. One week after the funeral, I didn’t have a hope, driving around drunk,” Lacey said.
“All of her dreams and all her hopes all her happiness that she had was gone,” Dee said.
Dr. Phil: Abused While Pregnant
Lacey said she was abused while pregnant. She was thrown on the concrete, shook, and punched in the mouth and had her teeth knocked out. She jumped out of a moving car to get away from an ex-boyfriend who kidnapped her as well. The abuse was to blame for the complications of her pregnancy.
Lacey’s story of how she was abused was very hard to follow and full of painful and traumatic experiences. It’s not clear who she was talking about, but one of the men in her life even talked about killing her.
