Lately, there have been many rumors about Kailyn Lowry’s and Elijah Scott’s secret baby.
Is it possible that she and Elijah have split? Both? We don’t know, and she has not confirmed.
What’s truly no secret is that Kail has been grappling with mental health struggles. Specifically, depression.
In a new post, she is opening up about her severe depression and the ways in which she is prioritizing mental wellness.
“Prioritize your mental health,” Kailyn Lowry captioned an Instagram Reel video.
“Because if it [weren’t] for @kcorreia23 & @natalie_a_k,” she grimly acknowledged, “I don’t know if I would be here.”
Kail added: “They saw the signs, they were there in my dark.” She also included the tag “Lexaprogirly.” Lexapro is, of course, a prescription antidepressant.
That seems to be a very clear reference to suicidal ideation. This is dangerous and could have ended Kail’s life.
Not every depression is immediate life-threatening. Suicidal depression can cause death. Sometimes it happens without warning.
It’s definitely a good thing Kail’s friends saw the red flags, and helped Kail get help. Kailyn is loved by her family, friends, and fans. She also has at least four kids who love and miss her. (Photo Credit: Instagram)
As for the content of the Reel itself, it was mostly a montage of photos from the trip to Thailand.
It began with a simple message: “POV: your first flight and destination is Thailand after a year-long battle with severe depression.”
This was not actually a “POV” video, since Kailyn appears in the photos. The children of TikTok used “POV” to basically state the premise for a video or scenario. It is not clear why. Most of TikTok is just a baffling algorithmic nightmare.
We are grateful for two things in this Reel. The caption and the overall revelation from the Teen Mum franchise alum.
First, it is a relief that Kailyn is still alive.

The second really important thing about this is that Kail isn’t pretending that she gained her footing in her depression battle just by going to the beach.
Believe it or not, there are still some hellclowns in this world that will try to suggest that “going for a walk” is a magical cure for depression. It’s not. Yoga or a visit to the park are not options. Kailyn said that she is on antidepressants and that yoga and a trip to the park are her therapy. And she noted that she is, in fact, on antidepressants.
