She's staying with it until it's done!
Mental illness is not the same for everyone. Each person has their own struggles, strengths, and decisions to make when it comes to fighting these battles. A treatment that works perfectly for one person may be completely useless for someone else, and vice versa. For Catelynn Lowell, she decided to go away for treatment.
Catelynn’s mental illness problems have been a focus of her Teen Mom OG storyline ever since she had Nova. After falling into severe postpartum depression, Catelynn began to explore her options for treatment including therapy and medication. But things got more severe when she suffered from a miscarriage that ended her third pregnancy.
Now, Catelynn has revealed her decision to go back to a treatment center for the fourth time in less than six months, making it clear that things are more serious than many may have thought.
When Catelynn Lowell sets out to do something, she sees it through. It’s no doubt that improving her mental health will have a world of benefits for herself, Tyler Baltierra, and their daughter Nova, so it’s hard to blame her for putting her health first. She made her opinion on the matter clear when she announced to fans that she was getting treatment for having suicidal thoughts.
Since November, Catelynn has been in and out of treatment to improve her health. However, when a recent Teen Mom episode aired, the reasons for her breakdown became painfully clear. During the episode, she and Tyler revealed to fans that they had lost their third pregnancy.
“It was very traumatic,” Tyler recalled while cameras rolled on Teen Mom OG. It was clear that he was extremely shaken by this update as well. “You see her shaking and she got blood everywhere, you don’t know what to do.”
After Catelynn stopped losing blood, it became clear what had happened. “She kind of cleaned herself up and we figured what was going on.” Then, the couple shut down. “We sat in the bed and cried. Just held each other. There’s nothing you can really do.”
Not long after, Catelynn revealed that she was suffering from suicidal thoughts. Tyler revealed that it was taking a huge toll on him as well. “I really wanted that baby,” he said through tears. “LIfe’s just not giving me a break right now.”
After all of this hardship, fans were surprised that Catelynn was going to make another public appearance. She revealed that she was leaving treatment to film for the upcoming Teen Mom OG reunion special. “Catelynn’s treatment team has given her permission for her to travel to New York City for the Teen Mom reunion to be filmed in New York City on March 3 and March 4,” a source told Us Magazine.
But now it’s clear that this appearance will only be temporary.
