“Tyler’s okay,” David told Radar. “I talk with him and he’s been through stuff. He has a great support system, so if he needs help he'll surely go to therapy himself and we'll all support him, if that's the case.”
He added, “He’s strong and very wise for his age. He’s brilliant. His mind thinks deeper than most.”
Baltierra has been leaving fans concerned with his cryptic poems. “It’s like my brain is so scattered that the moment I feel like I get what I’m after while climbing this ladder this person in the mirror just smiles through laughter,” he wrote. “Then smacks me in the face which starts the chase to this inevitable race to feeling broken, beaten, devalued, out of place and now I’m all off pace.”
The poem continued, “It just leaves me shattered and every time I think about my life, my brain becomes battered with only one question, does my life really even matter?”
But Baltierra reassured fans he is okay. “Listen guys, I write when I feel the emotional pain that comes from an emotional rage,” he tweeted. “I write to put some of these dark thoughts somewhere else besides my brain. This is not something to get all concerned about. This is healthy for me & an outlet to let these emotions out.”
In his memoir Conquering Chaos, he revealed how he tried to commit suicide when he was 12 years old. “I tried to hang myself in the backyard of my house,” he said. “Being so young, I was naïve on how the process actually worked. I thought if I jumped, it would snap my neck and I would die instantly. I didn’t think about the struggling and choking and while it was happening, I realized it wasn’t going to be quick. It gave me time to think. I grabbed the rope and got it out from under my neck. I ran into the house.” He recently revealed on the Teen Mom OG reunion that he has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder.
Baltierra’s wife recently completed two rehab stints for suicidal thoughts after suffering a miscarriage. David told Radar she is “doing wonderful.”
