So heartbreaking. Catelynn Lowell has been fighting postpartum depression for over a year, and now it has become to much to handle on her own. The ‘Teen Mom OG’ star has checked into rehab for depression and anxiety.
Catelynn Lowell has taken a giant step towards getting healthy. On March 16, the Teen Mom OG star left her husband Tyler Baltierra and their daughter, in order to seek treatment for her depression and anxiety. On the March 7 reunion show, Cate admitted to having suicidal thoughts after having daughter, Nova Reign.
Catelynn revealed the news with a brief statement to In Touch, “Just let [fans] know that I’m just seeking help for my anxiety and depression at the moment.” She also uploaded a photo from a seat on an airplane 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!!!” As of right now, Catelynn is unsure of how long she will be away for.

This breaking news comes right on the heels of a handful of alarming tweets that were posted by both her and Tyler on March 15. It began with Tyler’s comment to fans to send prayers for his wife. Cate followed it up with her own tweet, “For everyone that thinks I’m so ‘strong,’ I’m really not… one day you will know why. I can also be very weak.” Both she and Tyler didn’t want to go into detail about what was going on, but Cate the night with a thank you to fans for lifting her up. Her strong hubby then made it clear to all of his fans that he will never leave Cate’s side. So wonderful.
Stay strong Catelynn, you have so many friends, family and fans rooting for you!
UPDATE: Catelynn told MTV News on March 16, that she is entering a treatment facility in Arizona for mental health issues. “I’m seeking help for myself and my family,” she said. “Thank you to all of my supporters. My family and I would appreciate some privacy at this time.”
