The ‘Teen Mom’ star said she became so depressed in the years after her daughter was born, that she wanted to take her own life! Read on for all the details.
Farrah Abraham opened up about falling into a deep depression a couple years after giving birth to her daughter Sophia. The reality star said she turned to alcohol and drugs, but she ultimately thought suicide would be the best option. She even plotted out a specific way to kill herself.
“I figured I would drown myself in the bathtub — that seemed like the easiest way to go,” she told In Touch magazine in an interview to promote her book, My Teenage Dream Ended. “‘All I could think about was killing myself.”
The Teen Mom star, who got pregnant at 16, said her deepest depression happened when her daughter was a toddler. That’s when she turned to drugs and alcohol for relief.
“When I drank, I’d be happy for 10 minutes,” she said in the interview. “When I got high, I’d feel a sense of nothingness for about an hour. But in the end, my negative emotions always came rushing back.”
After struggling for so long, Farrah finally decided to seek help. She sees a therapist and takes medication, and says she’s more focused than ever on taking care of her young daughter.
Farrah reveals more about her depression in her upcoming book, My Teenage Dream Ended, which comes out on Aug. 14.
