The reality TV star is struggling with ‘horrible’ mastitis, and she has been keeping her followers posted about it on Twitter for the past few days. ‘Mastitis is no joke,’ one post reads.
In case you do not know what mastitis is, Mayo Clinic explains that it is a painful clogging of the breast milk ducts.
A new mother dealing with it generally suffers from the swelling and tenderness of her breasts as well as a burning sensation while breastfeeding the infant.
A lot of Houska’s followers were quick to leave her positive and encouraging comments, some even relating to her struggle.
‘I’d rather give birth all over than have mastitis again,’ one user wrote under her initial tweet.
‘I literally JUST said this to cole [DeBoer]! I never knew it was this awful!’ Houska replied to the fan.
Then, yesterday, the Teen Mom star took to the platform again to share that she was feeling better.
‘This is the first day that I don’t feel like I’m dying since Thursday. I never knew how horrible mastitis could be. Aaaaand I never want to go through it again.’
As you are probably aware, the woman gave birth to Layne, her third addition to the family, last month.
Furthermore, she and her husband Cole DeBoer welcomed the child on August 29, which so happens to be Houska’s birthday as well! What a great present she received!
Cole was quick to share a pic of the newborn on Instagram that he captioned: ‘Happy birthday to my sweet, perfect wife Chelsea DeBoer @chelseahouska who just gave our family this beautiful blessing! Sharing the same amazing day I’m so in love with our family! Our newest edition Baby Layne!!’
