Karla wrote to Dr. Phil 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, 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. However, even though the demons are gone, Karla says Abby can have a seizure-like PTSD episode at a moment’s notice.
