Farrah Abraham Admits Drug Use, Depression, Suicide Plan in New Book

by at . Comments

Teen Mom star Farrah Abraham recently felt so depressed that she considered suicide, she admitted in an interview while promoting her new book.

"All I could think about was killing myself," she says, and she even mapped out some specifics. "I figured I would drown myself in the bathtub."

"That seemed like the easiest way to go."

Farrah Abraham Book

In My Teenage Dream Ended, the now-21-year-old single mother says her lowest point occurred two years after her daughter Sophia's birth.

Raising Sophia alone, coupled with the tragic death of her ex, Derek Underwood, in a car accident when she was pregnant, was too much to bear.

"We hadn't spoken in more than two months," Farrah says about her ex-boyfriend, "but crazily I had still hoped we had a future together."

Before she was diagnosed with clinical depression, Farrah Abraham says she coped with her issues via alcohol, cocaine and marijuana abuse.

Only after therapy and medication is she "back on track."

"I was being selfish," she says. "The most important thing is making sure that [Sophia's] well taken care of - how am I going to do that if I'm dead?"

A fair point. One that Amber Portwood, who's allegedly tried to take her own life as well, should consider as she serves out her prison sentence.

For any of you saying get over it; you obviously don't suffer from depression. It doesn't matter if she's a brat, suicide in any way shape or form is a call for help. Depression is mostly misunderstood as sad, or just upset. Depression is where you have absolutely no motivation. You're constantly torn and life sucks, you don't find anything fun anymore; it may be so bad that you want to end your life. It's most definitely not just 'get over it'. Just wanted to get that cleared. Whether she did it for attention or not, at least now she can get help.

If you had a mother like hers you'd probably feel the same way! Yes, she didn't do a very good job when Sophia was first born but I feel like she's more than stepped up to the plate as MOM. People bashing her online doesn't help matters either, so stop!! I couldn't imagine how hard it is knowing that Sophia will never really know her father, that alone has to be harder than anything and feeling like your mom is against you all the time can't help either. Cut her a break all she's trying to do is make the best life for her daughter and herself.

Farrah is a fake mother who has had mental problems even before her child. She is not a mother. Lets say you put Farrahs child in the center of Farrah and her mother, the child will most likely go to Farrahs mother. She is not a mother to her own child yet she uses her like bait. She now has a book out about being pregnant and even the tv show. Well all of the was a publicity stunt. Look at Farrah now, where is her daughter at? Sorry folks but she is living her dream without a kid. Not living in reality with her baby girl.

To everyone bragging about how you managed to have kids in your 20s without becoming depressed, hurray for you. You probably had a better life growing up and I'm sure it is a lot more difficult to go through this when you are a teen in high school. When you reach your 20s you are usually more independent as it is. Not to mention, you didn't have a messed up childhood, you didn't lose your significant other, etc. Farrah seems to do whatever she can to take care of her daughter and she obviously cares about her. Depression is a serious illness and people without it don't understand what it is like. It's not just a matter of "get over it."
