There's no denying that Catelynn Lowell has had a rough go at it, right?
She grew up with an extremely dysfunctional family-- like, she started dating Tyler Baltierra in middle school and then his father married her mother, making them stepsiblings.
She's been through quite a bit.
Because of all the trauma she's experienced, she's spent some time in treatment centers, working on her mental health.
Most recently, she spent six weeks at a rehab facility in Arizona back in the winter, and then another six weeks shortly after that.
But judging by some concerning new posts she's made to social media recently, it looks like she could be headed back for another go.
How much is too much for one 26-year-old woman to go through? Ask Catelynn, she'd probably tell you.
Does she have the worst backstory out of all the Teen Mom crew? Yeah, maybe. She grew up with an alcoholic mother who, when she wasn't being emotionally abusive herself, allowed boyfriends to abuse her. Throw in the obvious trauma she experienced after Carly's adoption, it's a wonder she held it together as long as she did.
Although she had such a difficult childhood, Catelynn's big mental health struggles began after she gave birth to Nova in 2015. She had postpartum depression, and as we saw on Teen Mom OG, it was tough for her to even get out of bed some days.
She stopped taking care of herself, we saw her wearing the same clothes in several different scenes, and it seemed like a chore for her to do anything besides lie in bed or sit on the couch. Because depression is rude like that.
All Because of a Pig
Over a year after she had Nova, she was still dealing with all of this, and at one point, she decided to get a pet pig, but apparently she didn't think it through, because caring for the animal was way too much for her. Something about the way she felt then was enough to make her realize that she needed help, and that's when she went off to rehab for the first time.
She spent roughly a month at the treatment center in Arizona before returning home, but unfortunately, her stay there wasn't a total fix -- as we saw on the show, she was still very obviously depressed afterwards.
