It has been a rough couple of days for Teen Mom OG star Catelynn Lowell and her husband Tyler Baltierra. Catelynn confirmed on Wednesday, march 16 that she was seeking treatment for mental health issues just one day after she and her husband posted a series of alarming tweets about Catelynn’s condition.
The 24-year-old first hinted at the decision to seek treatment after she posted an Instagram with a picture looking out of a plane window along with the caption, “Arizona here I come… I can’t wait to be back to my normal self… this is for me and my family.. Novalee and Tyler I love you both very much!!!”
Before the post, her husband Tyler had tweeted, “Please pray for my wife,” as well as, “For better or for worse…through sickness & health… I will NEVER stop fighting for my wife. Keep her in your prayers…thank you.” Catelynn also caused followers and fans to become concerned when she tweeted at the same time, “For everyone that thinks I’m so ‘strong’ and I’m really not… one day you will know why. I can also be very weak.”
Shortly after her Instagram post, Catelynn confirmed to MTV News that she was entering a treatment facility in Arizona to deal with her mental health issues which she has discussed on Teen Mom OG including anxiety, depression and postpartum depression. “I’m seeking help for myself and my family. Thank you to all of my supporters. My family and I would appreciate some privacy at this time.” As mentioned, Catelynn opened up more about her struggles in the most recent season of Teen Mom and on the reunion show even revealed she has contemplated suicide.
