Life hasn’t been easy for Rain Brown recently. The youngest Alaskan Bush People star has experienced online bullying while her mom battles Stage IV lung cancer and now the 14-year-old is opening up about her battle with depression.
Earlier this month, Rainy dropped the bombshell on Instagram, and now she’s revealing even more details to her fans. She wrote, “For the past few days, I’ve been struggling with some things, such as my depression, life, and some teen girl probs too (ya know a broken nail???) and I couldn’t figure out why I was in such bad shape.” She continued, “I stayed in bed for about four days with minor aches and pains and I couldn’t find out a reason, it bothered me so much, I lost any want to be healthy or motivational; I was just a husk. But just now, in the middle of the night, it occurred to me: Sometimes you don’t have to have a reason, sometimes you don’t have to be perfect and somedays you just feel like staying in bed and watching old @simplynailogical videos and that’s OKAY!” She also added that her mom gave her some panaway oil now her aches feel better. “Thanks mommy!!! #staystrong #stayhappy #momsrock #dailyquotes #rainspiration”
Last month, Rainy took to Instagram to share a video of herself singing “I’m Moving On” — a tune made popular by country group, Rascal Flatts, and quickly received backlash from Internet trolls. “You should take singing lessons,” one person commented. Prior to that, she was slammed for taking selfies while her mom is dying of cancer. She quickly clapped back, “Yep another selfie❤️ you gotta love yourself kids no matter who try’s to push you down, you wouldn’t believe the people I have had trying to make me mad and a bad person but I just throw love they’re way along with a witty remark ?,” she wrote. “Anyway my point is always remember love is never wrong❤️??? just be and love yourself the rest will fall into place.”
As previously reported, Ami was diagnosed with lung cancer earlier this year. In a recent interview with People, the reality TV matriarch opened up about why she is remaining optimistic even though she only has a three-percent chance of survival. “I realized early into this that it’s very easy to want to give up and just die. And on the pessimist side, it could be my last days,” she said. “But I have the will to fight.” She added, “Worrying about it only makes it worse. There is hope and that hope is having faith in God. You can’t give up. I tell people be happy. Just be happy. It’s a choice. Things can be hard and you just want to curl up but you have to shine.”
