She is lazy. Reply Maxwell Lynch says: February 26, 2020 at 2:17 am Burden to society including your daughter. If your not a productive member kick rocks. People like her want socialism. They want those who are productive to give up to “help” them. She should be branded “LAZY”. Reply awesomeness122 says: February 26, 2020 at 2:18 am 1:55 I don’t really feel sorry for the mom as much as I do the daughter, she looks like she really gone through it 😕 Reply Emmanuel Phanord says: February 26, 2020 at 2:20 am Mom we really appreciate and ♥️♥️♥️ your gratitude but you deserve more even though we will never ever be able to pay back what a mom have done in our life I only speak for her and myself and also for the one who loves and respect their mom.

Especially for someone so young, I speak from experience. EDIT: Help is one thing but to completely depend on such a young child… you aren't going to say "no" to your parent… Reply justin miller says: February 26, 2020 at 2:34 am I think she thought this was the Oprah show and she would get a check for $50,000 Reply Helen Vivas says: February 26, 2020 at 2:45 am Dr Phil is trending Reply Comrade Ivan says: February 26, 2020 at 2:45 am Imagine finally graduating collage or university with dreams of starting your life as a independent person, maybe with dreams of finding a partner and starting a family, only to have that all shattered as your mom with (correct me if I'm wrong) a self-diagnosed disesse, wholly depending on you for money and shelter. Jesus H. Christ, I really hope that doesn't happen for me.

Reply Lindsay Moss says: February 26, 2020 at 3:08 am My sister has been formally diagnosed with EDS, and even on her most painful days goes to work and lives on her own. While it is true it can be debilitating, people still go on. And when they cant, they get help so they can go on. I just….don't think this woman has EDS. Reply J Diddle says: February 26, 2020 at 3:11 am Please. Doctors don’t say anything without documenting it. Never. Reply StuffedBox says: February 26, 2020 at 3:16 am Her daughter needs a life of her own and she's dragging her daughter down with her misery.

Take the Ex to court for what is rightfully yours. Reply Justin Brazelton says: February 26, 2020 at 3:36 am lazy. Reply Jane says: February 26, 2020 at 3:37 am I feel bad for her as she's depressed from the divorce, and you know, as she was settled as a stay at home mother with no job, being dependent on her ex-husbands financial efforts was the norm. But as soon as they divorced, she didn't know how to cope with it and how to adjust. So she depended on her daughter(s). BUT she's those people who believe the internet and think that the internet is the real doctor… So her naive state, kinda led her to this as she thinks her "disease" is disabling her from adjusting or doing stuff. Reply Travis T says: February 26, 2020 at 3:37 am Wow what a trash mom. Good on that kid for raising a child while she should be enjoying her young adult life. Reply Texas Tea says: February 26, 2020 at 3:39 am I'm 43 and try to stay in shape, watch what I eat and go to counseling to care for myself mentally as well. I hope I never have to depend solely on my kids like this =( Reply Kill Kia says: February 26, 2020 at 3:47 am I feel bad for her daughter hope she stays strong and she needs to get her as up and get a job and work out Her daughter's not a slave Reply Sheal Berube says: February 26, 2020 at 3:47 am EDS can mimic lots of things (she shouldn't be saying she has it when she isn't diagnosed officially). You need genetic testing for that. There are other diseases like MS, Lupus, Lyme's, CFS…she should be going through the process of diagnostic tests. She latched on to a genetic syndrome to make excuses for herself. Thanks for giving the rest of us a bad name!

Reply Lorraine Pierce says: February 26, 2020 at 3:49 am She needs to lose 100 pounds and she'd be in far less pain. But that's not going to happen on the couch.

Reply Cassandra F says: February 26, 2020 at 3:54 am I have an older brother like this woman, my mother took care of him until she passed away, I disagreed with it, I told her he needed to take care of himself. If he doesn’t want to work then he needs experience what not having a job entails……now that she’s gone, he’s astonishingly found a woman who’s willing to take care of him, so he stays home all day. I do wonder what would happen if she decides to put him out or she dies or something Reply Lorraine Pierce says: February 26, 2020 at 3:55 am The daughter is NOT RESPONSIBLE for her care, wether she's sick or not. Momma needs to do what she can to be independent. Reply asspounderify says: February 26, 2020 at 4:03 am I don't wanna do anything. Guess I got EDS too. TFW you're so lazy that you'd rather look for diseases you might have as a crutch rather than job openings and applying….

Please understand just cause someone doesn’t have a diagnosis doesn’t mean they aren’t in pain and disabled Reply Latina_17 says: February 26, 2020 at 4:17 am She needs to eat healthy, lose weight so she can get off her breathing machine at night. This woman will end up with heart failure if she does not start doing for herself n get healthy. I think she has read up on EDS n is psyching herself in believing she has the disease….an excuse for self pity. Reply ŁĕmonTårť says: February 26, 2020 at 4:27 am My sister has arthritis had it since she was 2 she is in constant pain but she takes meds to tone down the pain. My sister would never be this depended on me my mom or any of my siblings. This mom is ridiculous. Reply TheCuddlebun says: February 26, 2020 at 4:30 am I don't believe this so-called mother is being honest about wanting help, nor about wanting to stop being a burden upon her daughter. Since this woman can talk, use her upper arms, and wiggle her hands, she can still work at many jobs out there. Every USA state offers assistance to help people become hireable and get a job, as long as you put in the effort to prepare for and chase the said job. Most places also have specific programs to guide adults who are displaced homemakers, making the transition easier toward working for large companies etc. She'll most likely qualify for some kind of welfare-funded mental health care, as well. If she needs some official diagnoses, she can try to get medicaid & get medical help. However, seeing the numerous pill bottles and that she owns a cell phone, I can assume that she needs no financial help to get herself properly diagnosed. I was a displaced homemaker (and mom of 5), who sought assistance and found little jobs that led to better jobs. When my health issues wouldn't let me walk or stand at a job, I got a desk job. When it became too painful to leave my house for work, I got work-at-home jobs via online & call center type services. Just like Dr. Phil said, lots of people are always in pain, but still work. Integrity is what she needs. Reply Hi Bye says: February 26, 2020 at 4:32 am I think she’s just overweight Reply Madison Riley's Spam/Channel says: February 26, 2020 at 4:34 am Oh my oh my oh my, this is making me PANIC! EDS does not need this lady! We don’t claim her, we don’t want her, we are suffering from a SERIOUS genetic condition (some of which even die young, thanks vascular EDS) and she’s mooching off off web MD. I’ve been to the new EDS center at IU University and it’s an EXTENSIVE process to get diagnosed, we went alllllll over my family tree, we had to study my entire medical records, my skin, my joints, had to do all these fancy tests to confirm it, and then my entire family was diagnosed too bc it’s genetic! No one in her family has any of the signs! Please, everyone, do not peg EDS as just a ‘whatever’ disease that people like this claim! I’m 16 and can hardly even walk because of it, it’s awful! Reply Destiny tran says: February 26, 2020 at 4:38 am Her daughter will eventually give up on her when she gets too exhausted. This mother is a lazy woman. She is addicted to drug. Reply Kate Millis says: February 26, 2020 at 4:47 am I have EDS as well as other things and deal with muscle and joint pain, dislocations and fatigue (as well as others), and it makes physical work very hard but people with EDS can still use their brains and aren’t completely dependent on other people.

Reply Brennen Wilson says: February 26, 2020 at 5:09 am This is so unfair. I lost my Mother at a young age very suddenly. My Mom loved life. She loved us. To see someone take advantage of her children like this is so unfair. Why did my Mom have to go. Obviously this person doesn't want to live. It breaks my heart knowing my Mom would want to be here so badly while this person lies & wastes the life they have so luckily been given. SHAME ON THIS PERSON. I can't even call it a woman, because all the women in my life are strong, brave, & compassionate! Do better! You don't know how lucky you are to still be here!!!

Reply Michael JM says: February 26, 2020 at 5:28 am Contrary to what a lot of people are saying, my wife has an undiagnosed fatigue disorder that is debilitating. I am still here to help her, but she can't work or barely walk. Can't drive… and Doctors who are unable to figure out what she has are sometimes jerks just like Dr. Phil is being to this woman. People don't want to be dependent on others. Reply Katie Jayn says: February 26, 2020 at 5:30 am I have doctor diagnosed EDS and this is absolutely disgusting. I spend every day working my butt off to try to fight the symptoms of this illness and I can tell you 100% a doctor will NOT help you with it.

We just dealt with the passing of my grandfather at 87yrs old whom we watched go from a healthy elder gentleman to old age and dementia catching up to him and him needing 24/7 care 365. We dealt with that for a little over a year. I couldn't imagine being 24 and my mom 56 and having to pretend the next 30 yrs that my mother is incapable of handling her own life and it now become my responsibility! Since when does it say upon getting married and graduating college you now have to take care of your parents. Her mom had her at 32yrs old she is more than healthy she is sour her first husband left her and misery loves company Reply Donna S says: February 26, 2020 at 7:03 am Go to an assisted living home.

Reply Ashley C says: February 26, 2020 at 7:53 am How about her mom lose some weight? Morbidly obese and dependent? Sad sad sad Reply Leigh Davis says: February 26, 2020 at 7:54 am hypermobility type EDS usually isn't even diagnosed by a gp and its hard to get a diagnosis since its not genetic like vascular type. I was told that i might have it by multiple doctors after explaining my pain and having tethered cord surgery which is often related to EDS. It took me 6 months to get an appt with a geneticist only for them to to a quick stretching test thing to tell me that my hypermobility isnt far enough for me to have hypermobility EDS and vascular type which they can confirm with a blood test really wasn't suspected. It's odd though because originally i was told i could only be diagnosed by one doctor in the state who is famous across the whole country and that it would cost 1,000$ and wouldn't be covered at all by insurance. So who tf knows. Reply Anthony says: February 26, 2020 at 7:57 am SAD! Reply Rhonda Hanna says: February 26, 2020 at 8:18 am She seems like a nice lady so I feel a little bad at what I'm going to say. I think she is just overweight, and possibly has some mental issues.

Reply DesignWorksDW says: February 26, 2020 at 8:50 am Well she is a burden but so was the daughter when she was a child, its just paying it back and paying it forward. nothing wrong with that at all and nothing to be ashamed of. Reply K Wright says: February 26, 2020 at 8:52 am I believe her. There are many unknown/misunderstood illnesses in the world. Not just Ehlers Danlos. Lyme Disease and hyperparathyroidism are just two other possibilities that have the same symptoms most doctors don’t even test for. Invisible illness is common unfortunately these days. Doctors are taught to treat symptoms rather than get to the root of the problem. Reply Tsunauticus III says: February 26, 2020 at 9:31 am Sadly… this is the world we live in today. So many self diagnosed individuals looking for an excuse to be lazy. Reply Kerry says: February 26, 2020 at 9:31 am Just watched the full episode and MY GOD. Mental abuse. Financial abuse. That poor, exhausted girl. I have EDS and several comorbid conditions. It’s been years of pain, surgeries, doctors, managing new problems as they pop up and managing the depression that inevitably accompanies it. So I get what it’s capable of doing to a person. If she truly believes she is ill, she HAS. TO. FIGHT. We all have to fight through a variety of life factors. Even if she cannot get into a geneticist for a while, there are things she can do in the meantime to improve her quality of life, but it seems like she’s more content with claiming a debilitating illness for convenience while slowly killing that poor girl with exhaustion and guilt. Really hope this works out for both of them, but especially the daughter. Too young to be subjected to this. Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
