Shortly after Robin Williams' tragic suicide, Teen Mom star Catelynn Lowell took to her Instagram page to share a message about depression and revealed that she struggles with both depression and anxiety.

We knew that her boyfriend Tyler Baltierra had battled his own inner demons as he revealed his heartbreaking past and that he'd attempted suicide twice in a poignant Twitter post last year.

Turns out, Tyler's own struggle helped him recognize that Catelynn needed help. "Tyler has battled depression and knows what it looks like, so he made my first appointment," Catelynn reveled to In Touch.

Catelynn also told the mag just how bad things had gotten before she decided to seek help. "My depression and anxiety were so severe, I didn't want to live another day," she explained. "I started having severe panic and anxiety attacks in the middle of the night, which led me into a deep depression...I couldn't stop crying. I felt I'd be better off dead. I needed help."

That was over a year ago and Catelynn says that with the help of her psychiatrist and some anti-depressant medications, she's feeling much better these days, which is awesome because she has so much to look forward to.

Catelynn and Tyler are expecting their baby girl this winter and are rumored to be planning their wedding, which will happen sometime after the baby is born.

She admits that she does worry about postpartum depression, but it sounds like she knows what to do and who to call if she starts feeling that way at all.

Catelynn and Tyler will both be returning to TV in 2015 with a brand new season of Teen Mom. Hopefully their baby girl will be appearing on the show with them!
