The Truth Behind What Catelynn Baltierra’s Husband From ‘Teen Mom’ Really Thinks of Her Returning to Rehab
Catelynn and Tyler Baltierra have been fan favorites ever since their first appearance on 16 and Pregnant. Now, we’re all rooting for their health and happiness. But it seems Catelynn’s mental health continues to be a serious struggle for the young mom.
The Teen Mom star recently decided to return to rehab once again, which totally surprised her husband. Here’s how her mental health battle is panning out, including what he really thinks of her decision (page 5).
1. Catelynn was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder
Catelynn’s struggled with depression and anxiety through many seasons of Teen Mom. And People reports in March, she was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder. “It surprised me to know that I was diagnosed with PTSD. I was really shocked by it. But it makes a lot of sense too,” Catelynn said.
In November 2017, Catelynn was admitted to rehab to deal with her suicidal thoughts. She’s since been back again in 2018 to work through her childhood traumas.

2. Her mental health went downhill after the miscarriage of her third child
We remember when Catelynn and Tyler made the difficult decision to give their first daughter up for adoption. And a few years after the birth of their second daughter, the two decided they’re ready to expand their family once again. Sadly, People reports Catelynn had a miscarriage in 2017. The loss was tragic for the couple, and it may have been the trigger for Catelynn’s mental health spiral.

3. She wants to return to treatment just a few weeks after leaving
Catelynn returned from her most recent stint in treatment in late February — but it turns out she may be going back sooner than anyone expected. Us Weekly reports she told Tyler she wants to go back to rehab, as she’s having a difficult time adjusting to life at home. She explained to her husband that her anxiety in the mornings is particularly bad, and she has to force herself to go about her daily routines.
“I just feel like, I’m like, letting people down for some reason,” she told Tyler through tears.

4. Catelynn told Tyler she understands if he wants to divorce her for her issues
While Catelynn was telling Tyler she’s going back to rehab, she also threw out this shocking confession. Us Weekly explains Tyler tried to reassure Catelynn that she wasn’t letting anyone down with her mental health issues, but she wasn’t believing him. Instead, she said, “I didn’t even want to tell you that I thought about going back to treatment because I was like, ‘I wouldn’t blame Tyler,’ seriously, if you wanted to just divorce me.”
Tyler’s as supportive as he can be, of course. But his wife’s comment cut deep.

5. Tyler’s questioned whether he’s really the right man for Catelynn after all
While going out to eat with his sister, Tyler aired his frustrations with Catelynn, Us Weekly explains. He told his sister Catelynn was “speaking out of ignorance” when she chose to go for inpatient treatment instead of outpatient, as inpatient is hard on their 3-year-old daughter. And when his sister suggested that Catelynn might just be scared to open up to Tyler, Tyler suggested maybe he’s not the right guy for Catelynn after all.
“OK, then maybe you should not be with me. Maybe I’m not the right guy for you is what I’m saying. Maybe I’m not good enough for you,” he said.

6. Tyler’s troubling tweet has us wondering about his mental health
In the beginning of April, Tyler wrote a tweet saying he felt “so empty” and “so alone,” People reports. The tweet describes Catelynn sleeping next to him, his daughter in the other room, and his dog cuddled nearby, and yet he’s still struggling.
Catelynn responded to the tweet, saying she’s “so sorry” and that she’ll do anything to help, but perhaps it points to a breaking point for the couple in the future. And it’s not the first time Tyler’s opened up about his own mental health struggles.

Catelynn received a number of negative responses from fans angry with her decision to leave her family and go back to rehab — but she’s not having any of it. People explains she tweeted that the ignorant comments she received “are the reason mental health still has this huge stigma.” She then added, “Some of you people disgust me.”
