As fans know, many Teen Mom stars have struggled with their mental health, but this newest announcement really shocked us! This star opened up about how she has been feeling lately, and we hope she’s going to seek the treatment she needs.
Keep reading to find out more about this bombshell announcement, and what we can learn from her struggles.
Teen Mom fans know no one is perfect. I mean, that’s the whole point of the show right? Well, this Teen Mom star has gotten extremely real about her mental health, and fans are happy she’s being candid.
On a recent episode of Teen Mom 2, Chelsea opened up about having panic attacks, and Cole DeBoer suggested she see a therapist. Chelsea wasn’t sure about it, but eventually came around to the idea of seeking help.
A fan on reddit posted a recap, alongside their opinions on the episode.
Aubree suggested that “maybe we could go together, mommy!” and that’s where things went awry for fans. Cole and Chelsea seemed uncomfortable with the fact their daughter wanted to go to therapy, and asked “you want to go to a therapist?”
Cole then said, “For what? You guys can just talk to me!”
Fans felt this was an incredibly insensitive way of handling the situation, especially one that was originally framed as a positive conversation surrounding therapy. The original reddit poster also presumed that Aubree telling her mother that she would go with her was probably her way of trying to make her mother feel more comfortable.
“I think it was obvious that Aubree could tell that Chelsea was nervous, but that Chelsea had said it could make her better, so Aubree was offering to go with her to make Chelsea feel more comfortable,” they wrote.
“It was such an insensitive way of handling things. Aubree is trying to help her mom get better and instead it’s being looked at like some out-of-left problem,” the fan concluded about the scene. “It was just really disappointing that they didn’t encourage her act of love and bravery.”
Other commenters saw the situation in another light.
“I saw it completely different. I saw Cole supporting the idea for Chelsea but then thrown for a loop when Aubree said she wanted to go,” they wrote. “I think therapy is good but if my child randomly said they wanted to go, my first thought would be that I missed something and she doesn’t feel comfortable talking to me and I would probably blurt something stupid out like Cole did.”
