Teen Mom 3 alum Mackenzie McKee has always been open about her personal life with her fans. Recently, we caught up with her exclusively to talk about a time in her life when she was suffering with bad postpartum depression (PPD).
“It’s for sure something that took me a while to open up about,” McKee began with sharing. “People take my stories and twist them and people can have such rude things to say about touchy and personal subject.”
“It was the worst case of PPD I knew could exist,” she continued. “I am not a negative person, I’m not crazy, and the actions I was making was just not me. Nothing in me felt worthy anymore, I stopped having a passion for working out (big sign something is wrong with me). I had given up and just wanted to die. It got to a point when I wrote everyone notes because I knew I was coming to an end and needed to figure a way out to end my life.”
“I found myself in my own home, my husband was gone, kids were gone, my parents had had it,” she added. “I was alone and the amount of pain I felt is unbearable.”
