'Teen Mom 2' reunion special: Catelynn Baltierra and Chelsea Houska share their stories about dealing with panic attacks and depression
In today's episode of 'Teen Mom 2', the cast got together for one last time for the third part of the reunion special. Chelsea Houska opened up about her struggle with panic attacks this season and was joined by 'Teen Mom OG' cast member, Catelynn Baltierra, and Tyler Baltierra.
Just like Chelsea, Catelynn too has had moments where she suffered from panic attacks but her struggle with depression had been a consistent one. At the reunion special Catelynn shed some light on how she dealt with depression and panic attacks while Chelsea shared her side of the story.
Chelsea recalled that there were moments where she felt like she would die when she was getting panic attacks. She also revealed that she reached a point where she felt scared to be left alone with her children because she worried there might come a time when she drops dead and no one would be in the house to take care of them.
The reality star even visited several hospitals and got tests done to ensure that there was nothing wrong with her but soon she realized that she was experiencing panic attacks. When Catelynn was asked how she dealt with panic attacks and depression she replied that she constantly visited her therapists, starting her trauma therapy and getting the right medication.
Catelynn was sure that the right medicine could do wonders and her husband, Tyler also weighed in on the same issue. He mentioned "genetic testing" and explained that it could change everything for a person who has been experiencing panic attacks or depression. Dr. Drew Pinsky added that genetic testing helps people to understand what would be the best medicine that would suit them.
Chelsea's husband, Cole added that he was trying to do everything he could to support her through this. Chelsea further added that Cole had been helping her get through a hard time and making things a bit easier for her. Meanwhile, Chelsea felt that talking to Catelynn made things easier for her.
