As fans of Teen Mom must know, Ryan Edwards has spent time in rehab for heroin addiction but is the man actually sober now? During the latest episode, his wife Mackenzie opened up about her fears that he might relapse.
Following a short fight, Mackenzie told one of her pals that her hubby has been really short-tempered lately.
‘You can be angry, but you cannot talk to me like that. This is hard for me as well. I knew it’d be hard, but I did not know it would be like this. It is stress all the time. I am exhausted. I am sad and depressed and angry,’ the woman said.
She went on to confess that she is really worried he may return to his old destructive ways.
‘When Ryan was in rehab it was easy. I knew he could not get anything. He was safe. But when we came home life punched us in the face. If he wants it, he can go get it. It is scary,’ she lamented.
But while the two were out having dinner, the man said he was actually really relieved and grateful that he was no longer addicted to drugs.
‘It is disgusting I let myself go like that. It is just pathetic. I am so glad that I listened to you and got help. You have been very understanding. I could not have done this without you. Is there anything I could do to help you through this?’ Ryan asked Mackenzie.
His words made the woman break down in tears as she explained that while she struggled to stay strong for him and their family, she ‘lost’ herself.
Ryan assured her that he appreciates it, adding that: ‘You do not have to walk on eggshells to worry about me. Just because we fight does not mean I am going to do something crazy or stupid. I do not want to be selfish.’
