Amber Portwood is going through a difficult time.
Of course, as many fans have pointed out, it seems that Amber is pretty much always going through a hard time.
Though many of her problems are self-inflicted, and she seems reluctant to atone for her abusive and violent past, Amber's struggle with postpartum depression has earned her the sympathy of many Teen Mom OG viewers.
However, many of those fans have been discouraged by Amber's continued tendency to blame others — including her employers — for the state of her mental health.
Take a look:
1. Amber’s Angst
Amber has been quite open about her various mental health issues, including her struggles with postpartum depression.
2. Tough Times
Amber has been struggling with depression for years, and she said it’s hit particularly hard in the months since her son James was born.
3. A Shocking Scene
The latest episode of Teen Mom OG showed Amber confessing that she had recently considered taking her own life.
“I didn’t accept that I had postpartum in any way,” Amber told her cousin Krystal of that dark time.
5. A New (Bad) Feeling
“I just didn’t know what it felt like because I had never experienced that before,” Portwood continued.
6. Taking a Toll
Asked how her mental health is affecting her relationship with Andrew Glennon, Amber revealed that she and Andrew have endured several rough patches in recent weeks.
