Carl claims that he is suffering from numerous medical conditions that are threatening his life. The former firefighter EMT claims he has lymph and liver cancer, had four heart attacks in four days and takes more insulin than his doctor has ever seen a patient take.

TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Know someone with outrageous behavior?

His daughters and sister claim that Carl is a manipulator and a liar; they say they believe he suffers from Munchausen syndrome. The women say they don’t believe he has been diagnosed with any illness and that he is running them ragged when he asks them to give him money and when he calls claiming he’s dying.

Dr. Phil speaks with the family and examines Carl’s medical records, and offers his thoughts as to what he believes may be driving Carl’s behavior – and a plan to get his life back on track.

After the show, Dr. Phil reflects on Carl’s situation. And, he shares a question to ask yourself to determine if you’re ready to make a change in your life.
