Two wrongs don't make a right
It’s undeniable that Tyler Baltierra has survived a lot of bad circumstances that he was against. He was raised by a father who had substance abuse issues and was in-and-out of jail. Tyler got into drinking and drugs when he was a young teen himself, then met a girl who lived under similar unstable circumstances. They got pregnant when they were way too young to be parents, but giving up their child for adoption allowed them to decide that they wanted to get healthy and stable for their own sake.
Despite all of the work Catelynn and Tyler put into changing their situation, Catelynn developed severe depression and anxiety. Now it looks like Tyler is heading down the same dark path.
Catelynn Lowell believed that she needed serious professional help after she started feeling extremely sad and depressed a few months after giving birth to her second daughter Novalee in 2016. She checked herself into a month-long rehab for postpartum depression, and she came out feeling much better… though she claims to have moments of anxiety and self-deprecating thoughts.
Walking on Eggshells
While Tyler was overjoyed to have his wife feeling better, her inner turmoil did start affecting his own mood. He felt that he had to be careful about everything he said to Catelynn because he didn’t want to send her into a panic attack or depressive state.
Tyler was also upset about his father Butch’s recidivism, so Tyler decided to seek professional help to deal with his own feelings of sadness. While he said that he felt like it helped, it didn’t seem like anything within the home was changing.
Now Tyler claims that he just can’t sleep at night. Insomnia can certainly be a sign of severe depression. See what he had to say about his problems next…
