Siblings Say As Children Mom Created Non-Existent Illnesses In Them, Put One of Them Through Painful And Dangerous Medical Tests
Annie and her brother, Josh, say their mother, Shauna Taylor, made them sick as children. They say she created non-existent illnesses, and Josh says he was put through dangerous and painful medical tests, such as spinal taps and endoscopies.
“I read that Shauna put insulin in my milk,” Annie says.
“Shauna physically abused me, neglected me and mentally abused me,” Josh claims. “On a regular basis, Shauna would force-feed me pennies, nickels and dimes. Shauna put my oldest brother and myself in a dog cage and threw it around the room.”
Taylor was eventually diagnosed with Munchausen syndrome by proxy, and the siblings were removed from their mother’s care. Hear more of what they say they experienced in childhood in the video above.
On Thursday’s episode of Dr. Phil, hear what Taylor’s then-husband has to say about her behavior. And, hear from an international expert of factitious Disorder. Check here to see where you can watch.
