          Woman Claims She Suffered Horrific Sexual Abuse, Was Kept In A Basement And Forced To Watch Animals Being Tortured


          January 18, 2019

          Alicia claims that starting when she was a little girl, she was sexually abused and made to witness horrific things.

          TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Life in crisis?

          “I would be playing in the basement, and he would take me into the laundry room and he would abuse me there,” she claims. “He would take me to a big house that was surrounded by woods where I would be abused by not only him but other men, too.”

          Alicia claims that she was gang-raped, run down in a forest by these men and forced to watch animals being tortured and mutilated. Now, she says she suffers from extreme PTSD which has caused debilitating health issues.

          “I have a lot of nightmares, night terrors, so I usually sleep with one of my parents,” the 24-year-old says. “Sometimes, I’ll wake up from a nightmare and I’ll be having an attack. Sometimes, it turns into uncontrollable vomiting and seizures.”

          Alicia also says she has started to dissociate and act out.

          “My biggest fear is not getting better, staying like this -- that I won’t be able to ever get a normal life,” she says.

          On Friday's episode of Dr. Phil, hear from Alicia’s aunt who claims the young woman likes the attention and that her parents’ coddling her is the real problem. Plus, Dr. Phil tells the young woman how he believes she can begin to heal. Check here to see where you can watch.
