Teen Mom 2 alum Kail Lowry shared a vulnerable moment with her fans, detailing how depression affects her life and her kids’ lives.

Kail has been open with her fanbase about her struggles with depression. Kail took a break from social media and even from work to take care of her mental health in recent months.

Kail Lowry: ‘Depression makes the simplest things seem so heavy’

The 30-year-old mom of four revealed over the weekend that she almost didn’t take her kids to a birthday party because of her depression. But, she was able to push through and shared her story with her followers.

Taking to Twitter on Saturday evening, Kail tweeted, “Depression makes the simplest things seem so heavy.” A few minutes later, she returned to the social media platform, this time tweeting, “But I took my kids to the birthday party today. I was so nervous – literally think I’ve developed anxiety bc of my depression.”

A third tweet from the New York Times best-selling author and podcaster revealed that despite her depression and anxiety, she was able to get out the door with the kids and allow them to enjoy the party.

“I feel this,” wrote another follower who resonated with Kail’s struggles. “Take it one step at a time.”

Kail’s tweets come on the heels of the end of her lawsuit shenanigans with her former Teen Mom 2 co-star, Briana DeJesus. Kail’s defamation of character lawsuit filed against Bri was dismissed in April, but the two have been getting in occasional jabs at each other on social media.

Briana’s latest shot at Kail was directed at her mental health, in which she took aim at her for taking antidepressants in a now-deleted tweet. Briana’s remarks prompted Teen Mom 2 viewers to call for her to be fired from the franchise.

Teen Mom: The Next Chapter is currently in production and is slated to premiere in the near future.
