          How Anxiety Can Change Your Internal Dialogue


          September 4, 2017

          Ryan says he has suffered 100 panic attacks in the last four months. The 27-year-old police officer who spends his days lying on the floor wearing a nasal strip and essential oils because he believes that will control his symptoms, says doctors tell him there’s nothing wrong, but he disagrees.

          TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: I’m living a nightmare!

          His wife, Teri, says he’s changed from being the “life of the party” to having “zero personality,” and she says it’s time he “gets control” over his anxiety.

          During his appearance on Dr. Phil which airs Monday, Dr. Phil tells Ryan, “These doctors that are telling you there’s nothing wrong with you; I don’t know what the hell they’re thinking. There is something wrong with you.”

          In the video above, Dr. Phil explains how Ryan’s autonomic nervous system is out of control – which may be the result of Ryan being electrocuted while fixing Christmas lights in the rain – and how it is negatively affecting his internal dialogue.

          “When you start having anxiety, your internal dialogue is very fatalistic,” Dr. Phil says. “It’s fear driven, bad things could happen.”
