Many fans of Teen Mom: OG may have been shocked by the tweet Catelynn Lowell posted moments ago.
But ultimately, they rallied around the beloved reality star, offering crucial support as she faces the struggle of a lifetime:
Last year, Catelynn checked into a rehab facility to be treated for depression and anxiety.
Today, she revealed that she'll be seeking further treatment following a recurrence of symptoms:
"Well today I thought of every way to kill myself.. so I'm going to treatment #makeChesterProud @TalindaB #KeepTalkingMH #thiswontlast," Catelynn tweeted Friday afternoon.
Catelynn tagged the wife of late Linkin Park singer Chester Bennington in her tweet.
Bennington took his own life in July at the age of 41.
Catelynn did not reveal how long she's been struggling this time around, but she seems hopeful about her future.
She posted the above photo of her daughter's toy on Instagram, along with the following caption:
"Well Nova buddy is coming with me... and I'm gonna hold it close to my heart the whole time... #thiswontlast #thiswontstopme"
Again, fans responded with an outpouring of support.
"Oh Catelynn. You are a strong, amazing woman. I’m so glad you’re getting help with this. That makes you even stronger to admit that you need it. I know you will get through this. Sending so much love and support your way." commented one fan.
"Just being open about it proves to me that you are incredibly strong! You can overcome this! I wish you all the best."
Other stars of the Teen Mom franchise have publicly offered messages of love and encouragement to Lowell, as well:
"Thinking of her," Javi Marroquin tweeted, linking to an article about Catelynn's struggle.
"Incredibly proud of my wife...when she thought she had no choices left, she reached out & decided to LIVE today!" tweeted Catelynn's husband, Tyler Baltierra.
"My life would be desolate without her in it. You are beautiful, strong, worthy, & loved," he added.
