          A Day In The Life Of A 31-Year-Old Who Claims She Rarely Leaves Her House


          November 29, 2017

          Kayleigh says she’s struggled with body image since she was a teenager and has extreme anxiety about everyone looking at and judging her. The 31-year-old claims things have become so bad, she can’t even leave her own house.

          TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Know a total train wreck?

          “The outside is my enemy,” she says. “I don’t leave the house ever because I feel like everyone’s going to stare at me, and judge me and think ‘This girl’s ugly.’

          Kayleigh claims she stays in bed 90% of the day; can spend 18 hours (or more) in her room, and that leaving causes her to have panic attacks.

          “When I get ready to leave, you know, I get my camera phone out and I’m trying to take pictures from different angles to see what my makeup looks like, my hair looks like. Then I’m thinking in my head, ‘This doesn’t look like this girl on Instagram,’ so then I get more upset,” she says.

          Kayleigh says she feels like people see her very differently than she sees herself. “I can’t talk about it to other people because they just see it as me being vain and not really how I feel about myself deep down.”

          Watch the video above as Kayleigh documents her daily struggle for the camera. This episode of Dr. Phil airs Friday. Check here to find out where you can watch.
