We can barely keep up with the baby mama drama on MTV's Teen Mom 2, and next week's all-new episode promises to be even more OMG-inducing than usual. Why? Because southern belle Leah Messer is cracking under pressure, and she makes the bold decision to take medication!
Leah's under huge amounts of stress taking care of three young children — one of whom has a developmental disability — and the fact that her hubby is MIA 24/7 doesn't help. In a sneak peek clip from MTV, this gal opens up about her experience taking medication, and it isn't pretty.
"I'm about to start crying on you," Leah tells her husband, Jeremy Calvert — who's wearing not one, but two, man-necklaces. "When I first take that medicine, I feel calm and I feel like I can do stuff. I took half this time instead of a full one, and now I feel really messed up."
Leah says she feels as though she's "on drugs" saying, "I've never felt like that ever in my life. I don't like feeling like that. I feel like I'm slurring, I just feel really weird and I'm freaking out. It helps me at first and then I start feeling like a damn druggie."
So, how does Jeremy react to Leah's slurred speech? After telling her to call the doctor and lower her dosage, he agrees to help Leah as she tearfully pleads "be there for me, be supportive, talk to me. Be there when I need somebody to talk to."
Aww, poor girl! Hopefully Leah adjusts to her meds, and let's not forget, if Jeremy isn't around for her to talk to, she can always hop on Twitter!
