For nine years, the family of a little girl named Aneska has been living in constant fear. It all started when Aneska was three-years-old. She crashed her tricycle and landed directly on her face. Her parents, Melanie and Dave, rushed her to the hospital because her face was swollen and she was bleeding.
“She had a quick examination by a doctor, and we were told to take her home. About a week later, we noticed a change in Aneska’s personality.” Melanie explained.
Dave added that it was like “somebody had flipped a switch.” Aneska was no longer their sweet little girl. With each passing year, her behavior has gotten worse.
At just 12-years-old, Aneska has kicked her brother, choked her sister, threatened to kill her mother, threatened the vice principal at her school, and snatched her mother’s credit card.
Even more troubling is her violent history with animals. When she was six-years-old, she reportedly bludgeoned the family’s pet hamster to death with a metal flashlight. One year later she killed a nest of baby birds with her bare hands.
According to Aneska, the voices in her head are telling her to do these disturbing things. “I’m having to keep an eye on Aneska all the time … She’s uncontrollable. Very volatile.” Her father revealed.
And if you’re thinking, “Well, geez! Why haven’t they tried to get this poor girl some help? Why blast her problems on Dr. Phil?”
Well, they have been trying to help her for years. Doctors have placed Aneska on more than 35 different medications. She’s also entered a treatment center nearly 20 times. Nothing has worked. Dave and Melanie believe their daughter will end up dead or in jail.
And it’s not like Aneska doesn’t understand she’s behaving badly, “My behavior is pretty bad. On a scale of a 1 to 10, I would think my anger would be 10. Violence makes me feel comfortable,“ she admitted.
