Dr. Phil full episode: Is Jake Sick or Just Lazy?

by Dr Phil Club

Susan and Randy both describe their 27-year-old son, Jacob, as “incapacitated” and virtually unable to do anything for himself, including showering regularly, making doctor appointments, filling out job applications, cleaning his bedroom … and the list goes on! Susan and Randy say they fear they will have to put off their plans of retirement and selling their home to take care of Jacob for the rest of their lives! But, there’s nothing physically wrong with Jacob! So why do his parents let him get away with living in their home in a filthy bedroom and jobless, with no plans to change anytime soon? Is Jacob lazy, or is there something seriously wrong?

I hate this episode. It’s so triggering. People don’t understand how hard it is to live with depression and anxiety.

Based on just looks, he doesn’t look too bad. Idk what his mom is talking about when she says he shouldn’t leave the house based on just that. Smell, maybe, but I’ve seen plenty of guys that dress like he does daily

He seems like an awesome dude to be around. Like I wanna be friends with this guy and help him clean his room. He just needs to take himself a shower and do some laundry lol. But like he’s hella talented, he’s just needs to straighten up 😄

I feel bad for him. I’ve struggled with mental health as well. Hygiene is important though so I get why they are frustrated. No one wants to smell a stinky person. Hope he can get help and take care of his appearance and health.

I get it, my depression is the same way. Best thing would be for him to go to therapy and maybe get on anti depressants, it’s helped me, I’m still not great but it helps
