Teen Mom’s Amber Portwood: I Have Bipolar Disorder

Troubled Teen Mom star Amber Portwood recently told E! that she has been dealing with a serious mental illness for several years. "I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder three years ago,” Amber said in December of last year. “I struggle with it. I hate it.”

The 22-year-old went to rehab following a suicide attempt in June 2011. "When I went to rehab for two months, they diagnosed me with dissociative disorder too, which makes me black out. People don't understand what it's like."

Unfortunately, things have only gotten worse for Amber, who was arrested in December 2011 for violation of her probation, failing to complete her GED, failing to take anger management courses, and failing to set up a college fund for her daughter Leah. She was also found with pills, which she failed to provide a urine sample for.

Amber is currently serving a 5-year jail sentence in Indiana after turning down a plea deal to reenter rehab.
