Amber, a 24-year-old mother of three, has said that when life gets tough, she checks herself into a mental hospital. Amber says that during her four hospital stays in the past eight years, she’s been diagnosed with “20 mental illnesses.” Amber says she does not believe any of her diagnoses nor take prescribed medication because she says nothing is wrong with her.

Amber’s parents describe her as “manic, crazy and volatile,” and they say they want her institutionalized. Amber’s sister claims Amber is a “psycho, manipulative, drama queen” who could be lying about her diagnoses.
