          20-Year-Old Who Claimed She Was Pregnant With Baby Jesus On Time In Treatment: ‘It Was A Waste Of My Time’


          February 3, 2017

          When Haley first appeared on Dr. Phil, she said she was convinced she was pregnant with baby Jesus and was going to give birth days later. After speaking with Dr. Phil, she agreed to go to inpatient treatment to address her mental illness. Haley said the facility was supportive and her medicine was helpful, but now her mom and sister say she appears to be returning to her old ways.

          In the video above, hear why Haley now says she doesn’t think the treatment program was helpful to her.

          “I don’t think it helped at all,” Haley says. “I’m so tired of being stuck in a rehab center and then go to another one, and another one and being diagnosed with the same thing. It’s a waste of my time and it’s not helping me at all.”
