Messer went on to say she “did hit rock bottom” but came out of it and was “willing to air it all” in the hopes that she could helps viewers who might also be struggling.

“If just ONE person watched and reached out for HELP even when they feel so alone that’s all I cared about because I could NEVER imagine ANYONE feeling the pain, hurt, depression AND anxiety that I WAS suffering from,” Messer wrote.

“It would break my heart! I wanted to bring awareness and HELP others and if MTV couldn’t share that then I will do it on my own the way God wants me to!!!” she continued.
