Last month, Catelynn Lowell checked into rehab after publicly revealing that she’d been battling suicidal thoughts and severe depression.
Lowell has remained at the faciity ever since, and while she’s been unable to update her many social media followers, her husband, Tyler Baltierra, assures fans that she’s making steady progress and hopes to be home soon.
“My wife is incredibly strong & courageous,” Tyler tweeted earlier this week.
“She inspires me to just be a better human being all around & I’m so honored to share my life with such a selfless soul. I love her so much & can’t wait for her to be home."
He added the hashtag" #CatelynnStrong," which Teen Mom: OG fans have been using to discuss their own battles with mental illness and the strength that they’ve gained from seeing Lowell be so candid about her struggles.
The weeks since Catelynn checked into treatment have not been without their fair share of drama, but thankfully, Lowell has been shielded from it for the sake of her mental health.
Just this week, Catelynn’s cast mate Farrah Abraham attacked her on Twitter, claiming that she still smokes pot regularly (despite her claims to the contrary) and that Baltierra is secretly gay.
Tyler dealt with the situation himself on Twitter.
"Well today I thought of every way to kill myself.. so I’m going to treatment #makeChesterProud @TalindaB #KeepTalkingMH #thiswontlast," Catelynn tweeted just prior to entering treatment back in November.
She referenced the late Linkin Park Chester Bennington, who took his own life in July, and tagged the Linkin Park singer’s wife, Talinda.
"I’m taking the time I need right now to take care of myself for good,” Lowell told Us Weekly in a statement issued later that day.
“On November 17th I thought of every possible way to commit suicide … From wrapping a belt around my neck to just running my car into an electric pole.
"THANK GOD I have a support system and a HUSBAND and a DAUGHTER … thank god I am self-aware," she added.
"I’m seeking treatment and I WILL get better … anyone feeling alone you ARE NOT ALONE! This world needs all of us! We are all here for a reason … Thank you for your support during this tough time."
There’s no word yet on when Catelynn will receive treatment, but Baltierra says her treatment has been going smoothly, and
“We’ve been in Arizona for the past 2 weeks visiting her every Sunday,” Tyler recently wrote on Instagram.
“I have taken a break from everything & chose to really take this time for me and Nova … Without her mom around, she needs me & my devoted attention. Family always comes first!”
Here’s hoping Catelynn continues to receive the love and support she needs.
