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.”
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.
