The Teen Mom star is really opening up

It’s no secret that Amber Portwood has struggled with mental illness over the years. The star first opened up about her bipolar disorder in 2011, revealing that she had been diagnosed three years prior.

She has continued to be open about it, as well as her struggles with substance abuse, over the years and seems to be committed to staying healthy. But sometimes on Teen Mom OG it is easy to forget that Amber is struggling with anything, as she appears to be really happy with her life.

On this week’s episode, Gary made a bombshell statement that Amber hadn’t seen her daughter, Leah, in a month, which spawned the star to explain what is really going on inside of her.
