Teen Mom OG star Catelynn Lowell recently returned home after a six-week stint in treatment, and she is determined to change some habits that she says were bad for her mental health. The reality star checked into rehab for the second time back in November after experiencing suicidal thoughts, and just like the first time, she is being candid about her struggles.
The last time she left treatment she decided that she had an unhealthy dependence on marijuana, and this time she’s realized that she needs to stay away from alcohol.
Fortunately for Lowell, she has the full support of her husband, Tyler Baltierra.
“He said he’s going to be with her every step of the way in terms of her working the steps, staying on top of her therapy session and not missing any days of her outpatient treatment,” says a source close to the couple.
Lowell also wants to lose weight, and Baltierra will join her in the effort. He says that he has gained a few pounds this past year and he is unhappy with his appearance. So, he and Lowell will be making some major changes as a family.
The 25-year-old concerned fans when she left treatment ahead of schedule, but those close to her say she is fully committed to her mental and physical health.
She also knows when she needs treatment and is not ashamed to seek more help.
Lowell and Baltierra are extremely supportive of one another. After he dropped her off at rehab, he shared a message on Instagram, writing that after twelve years, his wife continues to amaze with her strength, vulnerability, and courage to get help.
Now that she has worked through some of her emotional issues, it seems that Lowell may be ready for another baby. OK! Magazine reports that a new Teen Mom OG sneak peek shows her going to the doctor to get her IUD removed.
When the doctor asks her if she is sure that this is what she wants, she happily responds that it is. She had canceled two previous appointments for the birth control removal, and Lowell claims it was because she got nervous.
Going from one kid to two is scary for her, and she was also worried about postpartum depression since she had it after giving birth to her daughter, Nova.
After giving Lowell some health advice she should consider before getting pregnant again, the doctor pointed out that she should be ovulating soon.
Catelynn Lowell smiled and said it didn’t need to happen that quickly, but the doctor joked that she should be careful what she prays for because she just might get it.
