He’s had it. Tyler Baltierra tells his wife, Catelynn Lowell, that he is nearing his breaking point when it comes to dealing with her depression in a preview for the Monday, September 10, episode of Teen Mom OG.
In the clip above, Baltierra, 24, enters his living room to find Lowell, 24 — with whom he shares daughter Novalee, 21 months — lying on the couch looking dismally at her cellphone.
The young dad asks Lowell what she’d like to do that day, to which she somberly replies, “There’s nothing to do around here.”
Baltierra — who supported Lowell’s decision to enter a monthlong Arizona-based treatment facility for mental health issues and marijuana use, as documented on TMOG — bluntly responds, “You know what? I am sick of hearing that. Is that phone interesting?”
Clearly hurt, the 16 and Pregnant alum tells her man to “quit it with the cockiness.”
However, Baltierra isn’t done: “You know what, Cate? You better figure something out to do. What do you want to do?”
Lowell continues to scroll through her phone and quietly says, “I don’t know.”
After her hubby encourages her to “think hard” about an activity that would get her on her feet and out of the house, she remains silent. But Baltierra doesn’t.
“The facility told me not to say nothing, so I’m not saying anything,” he says, to which Lowell demands, “Just say it!”
With her permission, Baltierra goes all in. “Well, I mean, I hope you wouldn’t let yourself go back to the way you were — your old patterns, behavioral patterns or whatever. However you, like, say it.”
Lowell listens and responds, “Panic attacks are always gonna happen. I can’t control that part of it.”
According to Baltierra, she missed the point. “Well, no. I’m not talking about the panic attacks. I’m talking about the repetitive behavior, walking through life like a log,” he says. “It’s more like a fear of even saying it out loud. Like, I can’t do this forever. There’s no way. Not like this.”
Baltierra then suggests that he isn’t afraid to call it quits with her if she is unable to change her ways. “I guess that would be a way of losing you, like, I guess, you know, if that ever happened,” he says in the sneak peek. “Like, listen, if you go into this thing again, I have to check out because I’ll get hardened. I’ll close everybody off. It’s safe that way.”
