          ‘It’s Awful What I Go Through In My Head,’ Says 21-Year-Old With Social Anxiety


          November 16, 2017

          Tara says she often feels anxious, nervous, and has a negative outlook on life. “I talk myself out of everything before I even try sometimes,” says the 21-year-old, who says she suffers from severe social anxiety.

          TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: I’m Living A Nightmare!

          Admitting she calls herself names, Tara says, “it’s awful what I go through in my head. It’s torture.” She says she feels like she can never do anything right, and that nothing she’s tried has ever worked out.

          Raised by her dad, Jim, from the time she was 13, Tara says she felt empty, alone and “really confused” after her mother, Christina, left the family.

          Tara says she still holds resentment toward Cristina, who she admits, she feels abandoned her. Can Dr. Phil help this mother and daughter find a way to repair their relationship? Tune in to part one of a two-part episode airing Thursday.
