Tyler Baltierra wants fans to know he's grateful.

As exclusively revealed earlier this week, the Teen Mom sweetheart, 22, speaks out about being the victim of sexual abuse in his shocking new tell-all, Conquering Chaos.

Now he's thanking Twitter followers for their unwavering support.

"Honestly just talking openly about the molestation & hearing everyone's relatable feedback helps," he told one fan. "Means a lot to me."

He also told other supporters that he will continue to share his horrifying story in order to help other child victims.

In the new memoir, co-written with his fiancé Catelynn Lowell, 22, Baltierra claims he was molested by a friend of his older sister at just 9 years old.

"It was sex act after sex act after sex act. It went on all day," he recalls of the harrowing incident. "She had us doing everything she could think of, one thing after another."

He says he was initially confused by the incident, and sadly, it went on to affect his relationships later in life.

After a rough patch with Lowell, who gave birth to their second daughter Novalee Reign in January, a counselor connected Baltierra's obsession with sex on his trauma.

"She said, 'You're obsessed with this because of what happened to you when you were a kid,'" he writes.
