Erin is a self-proclaimed exercise addict.
The 39-year-old from San Diego, California reveals on Tuesday�s episode of�the syndicated daytime series The Doctors�that she builds her whole life around fitting in workout sessions.
�I exercise eight�hours a day,� she says in an exclusive clip. �I never get tired, I don�t get sore.�
They do not make her feel good.
�I�ll cancel plans, I�ll cancel appointments. It�s been controlling my life,� she says. �I just can�t stop. It�s not giving me the rush that I used to feel just doing three to four hours.�
Erin says she squeezes in early morning workouts before work, and then returns to the gym when she is done for the day.
�Around 5 o�clock is when I work out, and then I go to work, and then I work out for another two hours,� she says.
But Erin also reveals she has been using exercise to avoid a painful trauma she experienced in the past.
�Eight months ago I got a message from a girl. It triggered a memory that I had suppressed for 30 years,� she says in the clip.
Host Dr. Travis Stork commends Erin for seeking the help she needs to fight her addiction.
�Before we get into where we need to go from here, we have to acknowledge where we are right now,� he says. �I�m so happy you realize that you need to change, because when I saw those blood pressure readings, there are things in medicine we call hypertensive urgency, and those blood pressure numbers [are] quite alarming.�
Gastroenterologist Dr. Jorge Rodriguez, who is working to treat Erin, says he was also alarmed by the results.
�In the six years that I�ve done the show with you, Erin is the most ill person, the sickest person that we�ve had on the show in my opinion,� he says.
