Amber Portwood, who appears on MTV’s popular show Teen Mom, is going through another rough patch. This past year Amber has faced losing her daughter, due to battery charges, and then she entered rehab after a suicide attempt. Keep reading to find out what Amber has to say about her current emotional state.
After only six weeks of post-rehab life, Amber was rushed to a local hospital because she was suffering from an extreme panic attack. Amber described the attack to E! News as, “I couldn’t breathe and I passed out. I stopped breathing.” So what is causing Amber to suffer these debilitating panic attacks? It could be all the pressure the media is putting on Amber, portraying her as a bad mother who just wants to party.
This teen mom has regressed back to where she was months ago, before her stint at the Malibu rehab. Amber is extremely depressed and shares that she is actually still suicidal. She said, “I’m f-cking depressed. My family’s not together.” This definitely sounds like a call for help, so hopefully her family is listening to her.
Amber’s mother has definitely been there for her daughter in her time of need. She shares that her mom is the one person who knows everything that is happing in her life right now. Her brother, Shawn Portwood, has actually appeared to be against his sister in the media. He shared a story in Life & Style magazine, that Amber goes out drinking all the time and doesn’t see Leah as much as she should.
As for Amber’s response to all the naysayers about her parenting skills, she says it hurts. She goes onto say, “The only reason I am letting Gary have custody of Leah right now is to keep CPS off our backs.”
