Amber Portwood: Still a Suicidal Wreck!

by at . Comments

Like the U.S. economy, Amber Portwood's recovery appears to have stalled.

Less than two months after checking out of a rehab center, where she was treated for both depression and anger management following a suicide attempt, the Teen Mom star was rushed to the hospital after suffering a severe panic attack.

"I couldn't breathe and I passed out," she said. "I stopped breathing."

Amber's issues, while serious and tragic, have done surprisingly little to inspire sympathy for the reality star, often criticized for partying and misplaced priorities.

"Honestly, I feel like I did two months ago. I'm still suicidal," Amber Portwood revealed to E! News yesterday.  "I'm f--king depressed. My family's not together."

Amber says she is most upset about "lies" reported by tabloids: "What hurts me the most is when people believe the lies about me. The bullying is too much."

"Look at the rate of teen deaths related to bullying. It's scary."

She insists, seriously, that she doesn't have a drinking problem.

"I went to rehab for depression and anger management, not for drug or alcohol abuse," Amber says. "I have been out twice since I left rehab and I'm 21."

"I take my medication the way I'm supposed to."

Nor is Amber relinquishing custody of her daughter, two-year-old Leah, to Gary Shirley, who she lets have custody now simply "to keep CPS off our backs."

"I see Leah whenever I can. I have stipulations as to when I can and can't see her," Portwood adds, noting that on the bright side, her own once-estranged mother "knows everything that's going on in my life right now and we're great."

That's good at least. She needs whatever help she can get.

I don't care how stressed you are or how tough life is you NEVER have the right to put your hands on anyone else. there is NO excuse for her behavior and i can't believe those of you that are sticking up for her. she is a drama queen and has to be the center of attention. she plays this poor pity me routine that is fake as h*ll. there are girls that have had a kid younger than her and were ten times the mom she is. she's lazy, violent, and pathetic and neither her or Gary should have that kid or she will end up as messed up as they are.POOR LEAH THE H*LL WITH AMBER AND GARY 8

So many people have stated about Amber and Gary with drinking and such, but you forget one thing..Their lives are thrown on tv, we see everything and we all judge away, but in reality teen mums and dads are doing much worse than this and just because its on tv we say nothing. How is that fair! Yes Leah does need stability, she needs love and most of all her parents, but again at least 50% of teen parents are not shown on tv and are doing much much much worse things!

WHEN YOU'RE A KID, AND YOU HAVE ALL YOUR DIRTY LAUNDRY AIR ON TV, WHAT DO YOU THINK A STRONG POSSIBLE RESULT COULD BE? WITH WHAT SHE'S GOING THROUGH NOW, WAS IS REALLY WORTH THE PAY CHECK? I WISH ALL REALITY SHOWS, WOULD GO THE WAY OF THE SOAP OPERAS.

I am not a fan of Amber, but what about Gary? He was hung over the day of Leah's birthday, Amber at least made an attempt. Gary had beer and condoms on the floor. His mother watches Leah more than he does. Gary is homeless...so in the end who cares about the 2 immature parents. Leah should be the most important thing in her parents lives. That is not the case and the saddest part of all.

@pak! she is on the show becasue MTV offers these girls so much money to stay on,a nd when they say they want to quit MTV offers them a pay raise, and makes it even harder for them to make the decision to be off the show. I mean if you were 16 and had a kid, and someone offered you 200,000 a year wouldnt you except! they are trying to make it in a harsh world, and look at the money as a opportubity to do things they couldnt if they didnt earn that moeny

@breezie, well I certainly wouldn't like it but at the same time I would NEVER put my life on the television screen. It's not like the tabloids found a random girl living her life in private somewhere and started bashing her....She put herself in the position. Why would any sane person do that??? I am not perfect, I will admit it. But I don't have a lot of respect for someone who is willing to give up their virginity at such a young age. Good girls don't act this way, good girls don't have their kids taken away. I do hope that one day she gets a good head on her shoulders and grows up.

@Crissy, aw...she can't do anything without the tabloids writing about it. Then why is she on the show if she can't handle the pressure of it??? No one forced or is forcing her to do this. That is why I don't feel bad for her. She's comparing HER situation to the other kids out there living life in the "regular" world as far as being bullied??? She's a celebrity, it comes with the territory. I know I am not supposed to judge her, but come on....she talks like a truck driver, she's violent, immature, etc. She needs to focus on being a nicer, sweeter person. I guess it's hard to do that when you have a child at such a young age, you yourself don't have time to mature.

Please stop using the Lord's word in vain "he without sin" is being abused on people that should do better. Amber has a problem and it's clear that she's not been parented. However, she's a mess! This whole leave Amber alone BS is just that BS. She needs to do better and she knows it! Cuz she's trying. But that doesn't negate the fact that she is a mess and all this pity party mess is keeping her down. The whole court thing kicked her butt in gear! I wish her well because she's proven she wants to do better....So get to getting Amber!
