Back in November, Catelynn Lowell checked into rehab to be treated for emotional issues and recurrent suicidal thoughts.
It was Catelynn’s second stint in a treatment facility, and just like the first time, she’s being admirably candid about her struggles.
“Well today I thought of every way to kill myself.. so I’m going to treatment,” she tweeted just hours before she checked in.
According to Radar Online, Catelynn recently returned home after a six-week stay, and she’s resolved to change several habits that she’s learned are detrimental to her mental health.
The last time that she sought treatment, Catelynn decided that she had an unhealthy dependence on marijuana and decided to swear it off.
This time, she’s also decided to forgo alcohol and commit herself to a healthier lifestyle.
Fortunately, it seems Lowell has the full support of her husband, Tyler Baltierra.
“He said he’s going to be with her every step of the way in terms of her working the steps, staying on top of her therapy session and not missing any days of her outpatient treatment,” a source close to the couple tells Radar Online.
“He said he’s going to be with her every step of the way in terms of her working the steps, staying on top of her therapy sessions and not missing any days of her outpatient treatment.”
Apparently, Baltierra has decided to make some changes of his own.
“Tyler will be joining her when it comes to losing weight! He’s admittedly gained a bit of weight over the past year and he’s unhappy with his appearance. He’s been wanting to lose weight for a while now, so they’re making major changes as a family.”
In the past, Tyler has been accused of fat-shaming Catelynn and being unsupportive of her efforts to lose weight.
Tyler visited Catelynn in rehab several times, so her decision to get sober likely didn’t come as a surprise to him.
Fans were concerned when Lowell ended her treatment ahead of schedule, but those who know her best say the reality star is fully committed to maintaining her physical and mental health.
Most importantly, she’s reportedly self-aware enough to know when she needs treatment.
And she’s aware that there’s no shame in seeking further help.
