Catelynn Lowell, star of Teen Mom OG, is doing her best to fight postpartum depression, she told In Touch.

"I recognized it nine months after [Novalee, 11 months] was born," Catelynn said. "It's a daily struggle." She's been open about her anxiety and depression before, saying in a previous interview that it got so intense she realized she needed to take action.

"My depression and anxiety were so severe, I didn't want to live another day," she said last year. "I started having severe panic and anxiety attacks in the middle of the night, which led me into a deep depression. I needed help."

Luckily she got it: her then-fiance Tyler Baltierra, who's also battled depression, called a psychiatrist after she had a breakdown last year. Now her husband, Baltierra has remained an ally in her fight.

"He's definitely helping me," she said. "I'm doing much better now." She said she's using exercise as a way of dealing with panic attacks.

Good luck Catelynn, and kudos to you for speaking out and getting help!

Season 6 of Teen Mom OG premieres Monday, Jan. 4 at 10/9c on MTV.
