Tyler tweeted, “Honestly, I wasn’t even planning on releasing that info, but once Cate mentioned about my recent diagnosis, I figured “what the hell!? Like why am I so against telling anyone!? It’s actually been a little easier to digest since I have been talking about it more.”

He also admitted to refusing medication, citing that he wanted try natural remedies first.

He wrote, “Well tbh it’s still so new to me. So I’ve been doing non stop research on the diagnosis, the different remedies to combat the symptoms, & how to better understand it. I did refuse medication, but only because I wanted to try all of the natural remedies first. It’s a journey!”



As fans of Teen Mom OG well know, Catelynn sought treatment for her own mental health issues in November of last year after confirming she was suffering from suicidal thoughts on Twitter.

Catelynn and Tyler have had a rough year. In addition to the confirmation of their mental health struggles, the couple endured a tragic miscarriage at the end of 2017.
