Nineteen-year-old Haley claims that when she was in rehab, a doctor diagnosed her with paranoid schizophrenia. She says that her first reaction was to say, “I’m not crazy,” but she says once she looked up the symptoms, she could relate.

“I finally had to come to terms with myself that I did have these things and I started noticing things like I cannot walk into a room without having to check everywhere – the closets, underneath the bed, in the bathroom and stuff like that -- without thinking somebody’s in there,” she says to Dr. Phil on Wednesday’s episode. “It’s all the symptoms of paranoid schizophrenia.”

However, Dr. Phil says that he has examined her medical records and there was no such diagnosis. “I’m not saying it’s wrong; I’m just saying it’s not written down,” he tells Haley.
Haley’s mom, Kristi, concurs with Dr. Phil. “She’s never been diagnosed. She diagnosed herself,” says Kristi, who claims her daughter is a “compulsive liar” and “delusional.” She claims her daughter lies about everything from claiming that the rapper Eminem is her father to donating a kidney to her brother to being 9 months pregnant with a baby whom she claims is Jesus.
