Amber Portwood: I'm Going to Rehab

by at . Comments

Teen Mom star Amber Portwood is going to rehab.

“I am going to rehab for anger control issues and depression,” she confirms to Star (via Radar) and after the month she's had, it's a wise move.

Losing Her Baby FOREVER

“I’m on medication at the moment to just help me relax," she adds. "I’m in a vulnerable state right now. I know people want a lot of answers.”

Mostly, we just want her to live to see age 22.

Last week's meltdown was merely the latest in a series of ugly incidents for the Anderson, Ind., native, who has more run-ins with police than we can count.

News that Amber Portwood was hospitalized after a suicide attempt broke last week. She was found by police and later admitted she had taken pills.

Earlier, she had a disturbing conversation with baby daddy Gary Shirley, telling him she was depressed about her life and just wanted to end it all.

Shirley called 911 after this happened.

Rope was reportedly found at her home. Amber was held at a hospital on a 72-hour watch, pending a psychiatric evaluation, and then released.

The exact details of what happened aren't known, but Gary is on her team right now, and Portwood is heading off to rehab in the Golden State.

“Before I go to California I’m pursuing help with a psychiatrist,” said the mother of two-year-old Leah. “My daughter is keeping me strong.”

Based on this picture she is probably do way before Christmas if she is pregnant. I am 16 weeks pregnant and due a few weeks before christmas I am not that big and this is my 2nd child so I dont' think she can be that big that early on in her pregnancy.

Get a life? Isn't that just what she's doing? Trying to better herself for herself and her family? Kudos to her. Is a courageous decision. You should do the same. Get an education and learn how to write and to spell.

Honestly Amber needed help WAY before now. She beat on her baby daddy, yelled at EVERYTHING and acted like she had absolutely no brain inside of her head on teen mom and 16 and pregnant. I am happy that she is finally waking up to her personal problems and getting help but someone ((like her family) should have had her seen by a shrink right after she had Leah and starting going bonkers.

I just googled her and there is another Hollywood Gossip report that she is indeed pregnant and due around Christmas!!!!

id say preggers. it is a recent pic and i dont think a pic could make her look that pregnant.

It has to be a more recent pic when she was pregnet with her daughter she was much heavier, she lost the weight after her daughter was born. Either she is pregnet or its just the pic and if she is and she tried to commit suicide she needs more help then rehab!
