Amber Portwood isn’t holding anything back.
The Teen Mom OG star took to Instagram to shed light on her battle with depression and set the record straight on why she recently went weeks without seeing her daughter, Leah.
In a since-deleted Instagram video, she explained that she and fiancé Matt Baier were even considering “institutionalizing” the young mom in order to reassess her mental health.
“I want to make it clear that it wasn’t a month, that was an exaggeration,” she said. “In that time I hadn’t seen her, I literally didn’t know what was going on with myself, I was in a deep depression where I didn’t want to get out of bed. It was to the point where I was going to institutionalize myself — to the point where Matt was actually going to institutionalize me… I love my daughter to death. You see the relationship we have and that we’ve built. There is nothing that could ever break that bond.”
Amber has previously been diagnosed with both bipolar disorder and borderline personality disorder.
