Catelynn Lowell Says She's 'Thankful for Life' After Seeking Treatment for Suicidal Thoughts
Catelynn Lowell Baltierra has a lot to be thankful for this year.
The holiday sentiment came after she announced on Twitter that she was seeking treatment after having “thought of every way to kill myself.”
Following the reality star’s revelation, her husband, Tyler Baltierra, took to social media to declare his support.
“Incredibly proud of my wife…when she thought she had no choices left, she reached out & decided to LIVE today! My life would be desolate without her in it. You are beautiful, strong, worthy, & loved @CatelynnLowell #KeepTalkingMH,” he wrote on Twitter.
And he continued to support her the following day, sharing an update alongside a silly selfie of the two of them on social media.
“We just dropped her off,” Tyler, 25, wrote. “We haven’t held each other & just cried like that for a long time. Even after 12 years, I continue to be AMAZED by her strength, vulnerability, & courage to get help.”
“ ‘As long as I am alive, you will never be alone’ – It is my call to arms & I will fight this war with her right by her side, we will not surrender to this…I will go to battle EVERY TIME for her!” he added.

The Baltierras — who have been happily married since August 2015 and are parents to daughter, Novalee Reign, 2 — have been through their fair share of difficult times during their over a decade-long relationship, including the decision to give up their firstborn daughter for adoption when they were teenagers.
“I’m seeking help for myself and my family,” she told MTV News at the time, stressing that her treatment will focus on mental health issues and not drug use. “Thank you to all of my supporters. My family and I would appreciate some privacy at this time.”
Speaking with PEOPLE this past April, Catelynn opened up about her battle with mental health.
“I’m doing very well. Two years out, you know, since birth, so I’m doing — I actually feel really good, I do. I had a panic attack this morning, but I worked through it. It’s just knowing the things that you have to do to work through it. But yeah, I’m doing way better,” she shared.
