          TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Know someone with outrageous behavior?

          In the video above, Dr. Phil speaks with Danielle, who says that extreme anxiety has taken over her life. She says she monitors her blood pressure multiple times a day, checks her blood pH and has been rushed to the ER 15 times for severe panic attacks. Once known as the life of the party, the mom of three says she can no longer drive or work, and can’t take care of her children on her own.
