Catelynn Lowell is excited to be heading home after receiving treatment for suicidal thoughts.

On Saturday, December 30, the MTV personality, 25, tweeted a GIF of a penguin with a hat and briefcase with a caption that read, “On my way home!” with heart emojis. She also posted a picture from the airport on Snapchat along with a 4:24 a.m. timestamp.

Just a day earlier, the Teen Mom OG star tweeted, “I’m going home tomorrow! So excited for the future and seeing my family!! Six weeks of treatment and I feel good! Gotta work it when I get home thanks for all your support!”

Lowell’s husband, Tyler Baltierra, shared with fans how excited he is to be reunited with his childhood sweetheart, also tweeting on Saturday, “Throwbacks of me & my wife at 15 when the duck face was all the rage & I bought glasses that were too big for my peanut head lol! Seriously though, Cate comes home today & I can’t wait to just hug her for as long as I want. I am so incredibly proud of her & the work she has done!” The Tierra Reign CEO also shared past photos of the lovebirds when they were teenagers.

As previously reported, Lowell revealed she was entering treatment on November 17 when she wrote on Twitter, “Well today I thought of every way to kill myself.. so I’m going to treatment.”

She later told Us Weekly exclusively, “I’m taking the time I need right now to take good care of myself…On November 17th I thought of every way possible to commit suicide… from wrapping a belt around my neck to just running my car into an electric pole… THANK GOD I have a support system and a HUSBAND and a DAUGHTER… thank god I am self aware… I’m seeking treatment and I WILL get better… anyone feeling alone you ARE NOT ALONE! This world needs all of us! We are all here for a reason…”

The Conquering Chaos author, who suffered from postpartum depression in 2016, has been open about her mental health struggles on Teen Mom OG and on her social media accounts.
