This Ain't My First Rodeo: How Dr. Phil Got Anorexia Wrong

This Ain't My First Rodeo: How Dr. Phil Got Anorexia Wrong

I'm sure it is difficult for the family. I feel horrible for my family for what I put them through, but I know they now understand I did not do it to them out of malice. I was sick.

I thank God every day my family and friends stood by me and still love me after the hell this disease wreaked on us.

But Dr. Phil, this ain't my first rodeo.

You're doing it wrong.
