A Mother's Struggles



Dr. Phil explains that Robin lost her mother when she was 58 because she didn’t take care of herself. Robin talks about it in her book, Inside My Heart.

“When my mother passed away so suddenly at 58, it was a turning point for me because I didn’t realize how important it was for me to take care of myself,” Robin explains. “She did not do that. She did not put herself first. She took care of all of us first. She took care of my father. Everyone else but her. She never went to the doctor. She never had any kind of checkup, and she went with undiagnosed heart disease and died very suddenly while I was talking to her on the telephone at the very young age of 58. It’s very, very important for you to put yourself first, put your health first, so you can take care of your children and be here to see them grow up.”

Dr. Phil explains that it’s a good lesson for her kids too, that it’s not selfish to take care of her children’s mother.

“You’re absolutely right,” Debbie says.
