It’s not uncommon for the Teen Mom stars to open up about some of the darker parts of their lives. In fact, viewing their hardships is what makes it easy for fans to learn and grow alongside them. Now, one star is sharing one of the darkest moments in their lives.
As more and more national attention is being placed on depression and other mental illnesses, it’s not uncommon for the celebrities and the Teen Mom stars to speak out about their own struggles with certain diagnoses. But sometimes, it’s not easy to keep your head above water. Now, one Teen Mom star is sharing that at a particularly low point in their lives, they considered suicide.
These days, it’s no secret that Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra have both experienced huge battles with seemingly unbeatable demons. After overcoming the struggles of facing a miscarriage, the couple have become advocates for mental health. But that doesn’t meant they don’t continue to struggle with their own mental illnesses.
Now, Tyler is revealing some of his darkest thoughts — in the form of expressive poetry.
“I know it’s getting deep out here, but hang in there, it keeps going & there’s more from my heart that I gotta pour,” begins one of his recent poems.
“Now imagine a little boy almost 12 years old with an angry core & he’s already smoking & trying to find a way to not have his mind collapse on the floor. He goes to school, no he’s not a fool, his grades are good, but he’s more comfortable with his attitude & uses his anger as his tool to get through.”
