Amber's side of things!

It’s been a long, hard road for Amber Portwood to get where she is, and she’s had some very low points along the journey. She revealed that she was diagnosed with bipolar disorder as well as borderline personality disorder, and her mental health problems might explain for some of these lows.

Amber was arrested on charges of domestic violence against her ex Gary Shirley as well as drug possession after she began abusing her prescription medication. She has since been released and just got out of a controlling relationship with Matt Baier, but more people have been touched by her struggles than just her and Gary. Throughout Amber’s difficult times, she was notably absent from her daughter Leah’s life, and some fans are upset with her for her approach to parenthood.

Now, Amber is speaking out about her absence from Leah’s life, coming back at fans who have accused her of being a deadbeat mother.
