She's opening up!
When you’ve been watching Teen Mom for months (or, let’s be real, years), there are a few things that you’re bound to notice. Obviously the big life events, drama, and feuds between the stars are notable. Those are the things that get you to turn it on, but when you watch hours of people’s lives condensed into minutes, you start to see something much more interesting: the stars’ quirks, patterns, behaviors, and mannerisms. Those are the things that keep you watching and endear the cast to viewers.
Leah Messer may not be the biggest fan favorite, but fans have been watching her for just as long as everyone else and it became impossible us to ignore her health woes. For years, fans have wondered whether or not she was completely healthy — especially during times rumors of drug abuse were flying left and right.
Now, Leah is opening up about the status of her health.
Ever since her first appearances on Teen Mom 2, fans have been talking about the… uh, unique way that Leah talks. While it’s not completely constant, there are many times when it sounds like her sinuses are totally clogged up, as if she’s under the weather and has been for the past seven years.
In fact, it got to the point where one fan on Twitter actually decided to take it to the source, and ask Leah what was going on. They wrote, “Why does Leah always sound like she has a blocked nose on #TeenMom2?” Leah responded with, “Lol. It’s funny how you said it, but yes there may have been a couple times I had a cold. I have severe allergies literally all year round and suppose to carry a epi pen and take allergy medicine and I’m horrible at doing it.”
Now, she’s finally given fans an update about the status of her allergies. She posted this picture of her arm on Snapchat earlier this week. Those rows of purple dots make it pretty clear that she’s undergoing an allergy test, so that doctors can determine what substances, if any, she has reactions to. She captioned the image, “My life right now,” with a shrugging emoji.
She then posted this image of another test, with small marks and numbers next to them. Although it looked like some of the sites were reacting, she captioned it, “I’m not allergic to anything at all…” with a side-eye emoji.
Although it’s unclear what Leah’s current status is, fans were relieved to see that she was getting tested to begin with. Reddit user tedsgrl wrote, “She needs to do this!!! Half of her segments leave me wanting to give her some tissues so she can blow her stopped up nose!!!! Hopefully they will figure out some help for it!!!” Others thought that Leah may have been doing it out of solidarity with her daughter Ali. User jiftar wrote, “I bet [Ali] has to do this with her reactive/restrictive airways and I can totally she her doing it for moral support.”
Meanwhile, Leah has also opened up about her daughter’s worsening health. Leah spent a recent episode chatting with her sister, Victoria, and filling her in on Ali’s doctor’s visits. “She had mentioned to us that she hadn’t been eating at school and that she was falling a lot,” Leah said. “She needs somebody with her, by her side, at all times. I’m fighting for Ali — I’m going to do everything that she needs to be done. We wanted her to be independent, and at the same time things are becoming progressive.”
