Why Mom Fears Daughter May Spiral Out Of Control

Jerry and Kristi say they noticed their daughter, Jamie’s, anxiety starting when she was 7 years old and would call them in the middle of the night from a sleepover to ask for help. They say it got worse after the family was affected by Hurricane Katrina, and once she went to college, they say they really understood how her anxiety impacted her. “It was getting worse. She would get inside her head, and she would spiral out of control,” Kristi says. “My biggest fear for Jamie is that she’ll be spiraling one day, and she won’t be able to get out. The fear will be too great and that she’ll commit suicide.” In the video above from Wednesday’s episode of Dr. Phil, "'I’m Afraid My Phobia and OCD Will Ruin My Wedding!'," the parents discuss what they say they believe may have been a trigger for Jamie's behavior. On Wednesday, Jamie shares that she fears throwing up so much, she has up to seven panic attacks a day and says that her OCD is “ruining” her life. Does she want to change?
