This shocked fans!

Ever since Amber Portwood first appeared on 16 and Pregnant, she’s had some obvious difficulties when it comes to her mental health. It wasn’t long after her screen debut that she sought out treatment for her anxiety, but many of her difficulties went undiagnosed for some time.

As the years went by, she received the diagnoses of bipolar disorder and borderline personality disorder. She has since received treatment and medication to help her. Unfortunately, as many people with mental illnesses know, it’s a difficult battle to fight, especially when you’re on your own.

Somewhere along the way, Amber developed an addiction to certain medications, which eventually lead to her being arrested for drug use compounded with domestic violence against her ex, Gary. Ironically, that’s something she bonded with her ex Matt Baier over when they met. Matt revealed that he had also recently kicked an addiction, so they powered through it together.

Apparently, they also had something else in common: depression. Now, Amber is dropping a suicide bombshell that brought her to tears on camera.
