In a candid chat with Us Weekly, Miz Lowell explained that while she's "definitely feeling good" following her April release from a mental health facility, she's also taking it one day at a time. Catelynn explained:
"I've only had two panic attacks since I've been out, and they've been very easy to manage, which is good. And I'm just enjoying life. Taking Nova out right now and going to the beach and exploring. And starting to do things that I want to do. So it's been good.
But it's definitely just still a long road ahead. Lots of therapy. Lots of finding out more about myself and digging deeper. And that's only going to help the future, I think. So I've got to stay on that path and continue to keep doing that."
Now that's what we like to hear! In regards to her "amazing" treatment, the reality TV vet continued:
"It was amazing — I learned a lot about myself. They just gave me a lot of tools and a lot of the things that I needed. … I definitely got out feeling more stable."
AH-Mazing! Although, it probably helped her husband Tyler Baltierra and her daughter Novalee were able to visit her throughout her stay. In fact, the 24-year-old couldn't help but gush about her man as she added:
"I was like, ‘Wow, I'm so lucky to have him just to hold the fort down while I'm gone.'"
Regardless, Catelynn's concerns about having another kiddo in the future stems from her past with postpartum depression. Thankfully, it seems Lowell has a plan in place if she faces the same struggles next time around. Tyler's wife relayed:
"My counselor even said, ‘The next time that you're pregnant, you make a plan. Make a plan, and you tell people, ‘If this happens again, I need this from you.' You know? To help me through it. You just have to ask for the help and make a plan ahead of time. And it's definitely scary, and it's something to think, about but I know that it can be overcome."
Be sure to catch Teen Mom OG when it airs on MTV Monday at 9 p.m. EST!
