Teen Mom star Amber Portwood was admitted to an Indiana hospital yesterday after the 21-year-old suffered a panic attack in her home. Portwood’s cousin Kathryn Zion was on-hand and able to notify emergency services immediately.
According to a source,
[Amber] has panic attacks all the time, but this time it was so bad that she couldn’t breathe… Some people are saying Amber was rushed to the hospital because of a drug overdose, but right now that’s just a rumor… The most likely explanation is that she forgot to take her medicine and when her panic attack came on she couldn’t catch her breath.
Sounds likely enough to me. I can’t image that after spending the entire summer in rehab, Amber would let herself relapse that quickly.
Thankfully, Portwood’s ex-boyfriend/fiance Gary Shirley has custody of their two-year-old daughter Leah at the time of the attack.
Wishing for a speedy recovery, Amber!
