Catelynn Baltierra will be home for at least one holiday.
The troubled Teen Mom star, who missed sharing Christmas with her family because she was seeking professional help in rehab, has confirmed some positive news via Twitter:
She’s outta there!
“I’m going home tomorrow!” wrote Catelynn on Friday, adding:
“So excited for the future and seeing my family!! Six weeks of treatment and I feel good! Gotta work it when I get home thanks for all your support.”
The mother of two precious kids (one girl, Carly, was given up for adoption) concluded her Tweet with the hashtag “KeepTalkingMH.”
We’re pretty sure that stands for Keep Talking Mental Health because Lowell did not enter rehab for any substance abuse problem.
She instead acknowledged the need for assistance due to a disturbing abundance of suicidal thoughts.
Back in mid-November, the MTV star surprised fans and concerned them greatly when she Tweeted the following:
Well today I thought of every way to kill myself.. so I’m going to treatment #makeChesterProud @TalindaB #KeepTalkingMH #thiswontlast.
She tagged the wife of late Linkin Park singer Chester Bennington in her Tweet because the Linkin Park singer, who lived with Depression most of his adult life, had recently committed suicide at the time.
Thankfully, fans responded to the 25-year old at the time with messages of support.
And the same held true of her husband, Tyler.
“It’s going to be a rough holiday without being able to kiss her & tells her how thankful I am for her,” Tyler said on social media the day after Catelynn checked in to rehab, adding:
“But we have a strong resilience crafter by our past, we got this!”
A couple weeks ago, rumors circulated that Catelynn was thinking of leaving her treatment facility against doctor’s orders.
She did then exit on December 14, just prior to the 30-day mark, only to return several days later.
No one is quite sure what happened there and why, although one report has claimed Lowell simply missed her daughter.
Fortunately, though, Catelynn has at least admitted she can’t overcome her mental health problems on her own.
Back in 2016, shortly after giving birth to Nova, Catelynn also sought rehabilitation help for post-partum depression and anxiety.
She’s struggled with Depression for at least a few years.
Why are fans hopeful that this time the assistance will take?
We sadly can’t say for sure. No one is ever fully cured of a mental illness.
But Lowell has sounded more open than ever before about relying on others and focusing on a bright future.
“I’m seeking treatment and I WILL get better,” she wrote back when entering rehab last month.
Continued the star:
“Anyone feeling alone you ARE NOT ALONE! This world needs all of us! We are all here for a reason… Thank you for your support during this tough time.”
We’re rooting for you, Catelynn.
We can only imagine how challenging this struggle has been, but please take your own advice and know you are not alone.
Tyler referred to his wife as “incredibly strong & courageous” just a few days ago, while Teen Mom viewers are only wishing the very best for Lowell.
She has two children to care for and many years ahead of her still to live.
Let’s all hope she makes the most of them and overcomes the scary thoughts that have been plaguing her mind for years now.
