Karla wrote to the show saying she is terrified for her daughter, Abby, who she says is dealing with debilitating episodes of PTSD from being possessed by demons for over a decade. Karla says that at times during her possessions, the demons would beat, stab, and rape Abby multiple times a day, every single day.
Karla says she was forced to contact a Catholic priest who performed three separate exorcisms on Abby and was able to finally remove the demons for good in 2015. But even though the demons are gone, Karla says the family’s lives completely revolve around Abby, who can have a seizure-like PTSD episode at a moment’s notice. Abby says one year ago, she began having traumatic PTSD episodes that mimic her possessions. Abby says she’s positive she’s no longer possessed by demons because prayer and Holy Water no longer affect her.

Abby says she is turning to Dr. Phil for help, as no one in the medical or spiritual field has been able to help her. Is there any hope for Abby? Can Dr. Phil solve this supernatural crisis? Plus, Abby has an episode onstage.Read More
