When the news broke that Nadya Suleman, aka Octomom, was entering rehab, some people were relieved, while others were left wondering if this was just another ploy for attention. In a new interview, Octomom shared some of her struggles, and dished about heading to rehab!
News of Octomom entering rehab, for an alleged addiction to Xanax, did not come as a huge surprise to most. While some have been speculating that Nadya actually suffers from a severe psychological disorder, Octomom says she did indeed have an addiction, and that is why she decided to seek help.
Just a few days before Octo entered rehab, she sat down for an interview with In Touch Magazine, where she shared her struggles with panic attacks. “I wake up at 5 every morning and take a five-minute shower,” she said, before admitting that she only sleeps a few hours per night. Nadya then went on to add: “I do the cooking for the next day in the middle of the night. It’s been exhausting.”
Just taking care of 14 kids must be exhausting, and Octomom has been plagued by financial woes as well, leading her take on whatever jobs she can. “I just do as much as I can to survive and generate as much revenue as I can,” she went on to reveal, as her reasoning for doing porn, stripping, etc.
And while Octomom may not be proud of things she has done for money, one thing she is proud of is that she took the first step to overcome her addiction. Nadya issued the following statement recently about her stint in rehab: “I chose to seek treatment for my recent use of Xanax, which was prescribed by my physician for panic attacks. I am working in therapy every day regarding the origin of these attacks so as not to have to rely on medications to handle it.”
Do you think Octomom actually has a drug addiction? Or does it matter, as long as she’s seeking treatment for her problems and leaving her kids in good hands? Share your opinion in the comments section below!
