“Tyler is still struggling with depression, but writing is a big outlet of his,” a source close to Baltierra told Radar. “He’s in the midst of writing a self-help book for mental health that he wants to release in 2019.” The insider added he will include his "own experiences" regarding his marital issues with wife Lowell.
During marital issues with Lowell, Baltierra posted a series of poems on social media to help cope.
On the most recent season, Baltierra asked Lowell to split for a month so they could discover who they are outside of the relationship. The insider revealed the time apart has paid off.
“Tyler seems the most confident he ever has in their relationship now that he knows that he can be 100 percent honest with Cate about how he feels,” the insider said. “They’re both really well.”
On part one of the Teen Mom OG reunion, Baltierra opened up about their relationship problems. “I had resentments,” he said of her post-partum depression. “After a certain time yeah I blamed her. You have to take accountability. ‘Cate did you not notice you haven’t changed in three days? Did you not notice you haven’t gotten out of bed? You’re in a robe on a couch.’ I know it sounds insensitive.”
He explained of their separation, “The goal is to figure out who we are as individuals. We got together super young. We use each other as survival. You lose who you are as an individual. Who am I if I’m not Catelynn’s husband? It should be an easy answer.”
