          "Help, Dr. Phil! My Father Has Extreme Munchausen and It’s Destroying the Entire Family"

          March 26, 2018

          PLAYING “Help, Dr. Phil! My Father Has Extreme Munchausen and It’s Destroying the Entire Family”
          Carl, a former firefighter EMT, says he can’t seem to pick up the pieces after a tragic car accident 20 years ago that left one of his daughters dead and the other three heartbroken.

          His oldest daughter, Melody, wrote into the show claiming her father has “extreme Munchausen.” She says he recently told the family that he had four heart attacks in four days and his liver is dead from liver cancer. His youngest daughter, Hilary, says she is running ragged helping him the most with his ailments. Meanwhile, Heather, his middle daughter, says she has already put up some serious boundaries with her father. Carl’s sister, Teri, says she has also felt the fallout of Carl’s medical mayhem and she’s very concerned about her nieces. The family comes together to confront Carl and to see if they all can return to good health again.
