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.

Besides the only reason you guys would be knocking her is because either you guys have more of a fu*ked up life then u say yous do all you really hate is yourselves cause wat did this girl to to you your the ones following her life... No one forces you to watch the show or anything about her but for most of u people to know that much about her u have to watch about her alot so therefore u cant hate her that dam bad... Either that or its just flat out that.. YOU GUYS ARE JUST JELOUSE THAT HER LIFE WAS ON T.V AND YOURS WASNT... THAT SHES IN THE SPOT LIGHT AND YOU AINT.. I mean dam get your sh*t together and worry about yourselves.. you act like sitting here raggin and dissin on her is going to make her suicide issuse even better!

If she was truly concerned about her well being, she should stop trying to cash in and have to expose herself to all these mean comments. Great therapy I would say!

Some of you "women" with and without kids are really rude, you should be ashamed of yourselves! People everywhere with and without kids deal with depression everyday some end up actuaqlly killing themselves and this is how you react?! What is it was your best friend, your family member, your CHILD would you still say "grow up"? Think about your words before you post them!

He wasnt her boyfriend. If you actually watch the show he tells her to piss off forever & leave him alone. Shes a disgusting person who treats her parents like trash. Spoiled rich twat. That baby is better off without her.

I'm not one to judge her because I've been there I was a single mother for 4 years worked 2 jobs and I was stressed out! And all the ignorant comments disgust me. Yes she may have slept with multiple men buy what does that have to do with her thinking of commiting suicide? You have no idea what goes on in her head so why all the rude comments. Many mothers go thru this and never speak out and end up killing themselves and the kids! Remember this before you talk bad about someone your words have an effect on their lives and don't judge unless you have walked a mile in her shoes!

First off I want to thank Farrah for speaking out! And for the women who want to judge her situation you don't know what's going on in her head to speak about it yes she's on tv but I'm pretty sure their is much more going on than what we know. Many women have this problem I'm a stay at home mother of 3 and I was a single mother for 4 years and a teen mom! I was alone working and taking care of my child also and every mothers stress levels are different. You never know how strong you are until your tested. Also do some research because many mothers have this problem she's just brave enough to admitt it don't judge unless you have the knowlege to back it up!

wow (farrahsucks).. Some people are just plain pathetic.. This girl has had it rough from before her boyfriend died cause apparentlly they were having a rocky relationship before the tragic accident... You want to knock her because shes taking a bartending class but atleast she is doing somthing to support her daughter because there are alot of mothers who dont do shit and u can make alot of money doing that sometimes... And because u work at a pharmacy u are so much better then her... Thats your opinion and for you to knock strippers and bartenters is plain lame low and degrading because let me tell u something i am a mother of 3 and i was 16 when i had my first.. Its hard and yes i am a dancer "stripper" but let me fill you in on something before u go knocking the occupation.. I MAKE A HELL OF ALOT MORE MONEY THEN YOU DO!!

I am a young single mom of 3 babies 5, 3 and 1 years old. I have a hell of a lot more problems then she does and not once turned to alcohol, drugs or thought about suicide.The fact that shes playing this up to sell her "my teenage dream is over." Or whatever it's called makes me sick!! Sounds like an immature drama queen to me. Drugs, alcohol and suicide thoughts as a mother all have one thing in common "SELFISH!!" GROW UP!!!
