All of Jenelle's Psychiatric Issues

Teen Mom 2

If there's one thing Teen Mom stars love to discuss, it's their psychiatric issues.

Teen Mom OG star Catelynn spent quite a bit of her screen time discussing postpartum depression and bipolar disorder.

Teen Mom OG star Maci also had a lot to say about her own postpartum depression but also baby daddy Ryan's opiate dependence issues Now, Jenelle is talking transparently about her psychological difficulties in her recently released book, "Read Between the Lines."

First, Jenelle discusses the early abandonment by her father. Jenelle's parents got divorced and her dad spent time with her until she was about 11 years old. After that, he disappeared from her life.

Jenelle discusses her tendency to chase boys her entire teenage life and the pattern she had of giving up her whole life for whoever she was dating at the time.

Surprisingly, Jenelle was able to make the connection between her dating patterns and the early abandonment by her dad.

Second, Jenelle discusses her troubles with impulsivity. She calls it "chasing danger" in her book - which meant doing drugs, having explosive relationships, and even fighting with close girlfriends.

As we all know, Jenelle has had plenty of trouble with the law.

After a stint of rehab, which she discusses in detail in the book, Jenelle talks about how she found out that she has the diagnosis of "bipolar disorder" and how much better it made her feel to know that she her troubles were a function of her brain chemistry.

Hmmm - does the diagnosis of bipolar disorder fit Jenelle or are her issues more related to her drug usage? Let us know what you think in the comments.
