Leah Messer's daughter Ali suffers from muscular dystrophy – and her condition is getting worse. On this week's Teen Mom 2, Messer opened up about her daughter's struggles.
While on vacation in Hawaii with co-star Kailyn Lowry, Messer explained how Ali "has had a lot of trouble recently."
"Her challenges are more visible than they have been before," she told Lowry. "She's been getting really, really tired, needing her wheelchair more."
Messer added how she is even bullied at school.
"Kids have been making fun of Ali at school to Aleeah," Messer said. "'Your sister walks like this.' Aleeah got angry, punched her book and was crying. Aleeah is having a hard time understanding what's going on. She needs a lot of our attention so she's being mean to Ali."
She then admitted, "I don't know how to raise a special needs child."
When Messer called baby daddy Corey Simms to check in on the girls, he told her how she got sick while she has been gone.
"She hasn't been feeling well for a while," Messer said. "This has to be the most f**ked up disorder."
Lowry then confided in Messer herself. She explained how the father of her youngest son Lux, Chris Lopez, asked about their son. In seven months, it's the second time he's asked about their child.
"That's horrible," Lowry said. "I made sure I arranged Chris to get his supervised visit tomorrow. He posted a picture with the baby in my bed when the baby was a month old. He just posted it the other day. Please don't be an Instagram dad."
Also on the episode, Javi Marroquin showed up to ex-girlfriend Briana DeJesus' plastic surgery to take care of her. But she wasn't happy with the surprise, as she already asked her ex-boyfriend Dre to help her after Marroquin went on ex-wife Lowry's podcast to discuss their split.
"I'm sorry for the podcast," Marroquin said, as she responded, "I don't know why you went on there. You hit her up."
Marroquin the fired, "How am I not allowed to get mad at you when you have your ex-boyfriend come and take care of you when it should've been me?"
She explained how she only called him because he went on the podcast.
"I'm doing a lot of fighting for whatever it is that's left," he said. "I have someone saying they will move to Dover to give us a shot."
She then told him to leave and called him a "piece of s**t."
"You gave me a ring, you said you want me to move down there, then all of a sudden you throw it in my face that you have someone willing to do the same thing," she said.
He replied, "If I wanted to fill that void I can, but I'm not settling. I'm here for you. If I wanted to settle I can, I don't. No one makes me feel like you make me feel."
"I don't feel safe with him around the other person," he said of Evans' husband David Eason. "I want to fight for him and go head on."
Griffith then got a call from Evans' mom Barbara who told him, "Jace came home from Jenelle's and told me David got very angry at Kaiser. Kaiser said, 'I have to pee,' and David said, 'No you don't.' He peed on David. Jace said he spanked him so hard, Kaiser was crying. Jace said to me, 'He spanks him all the time.'"
"Kaiser told me several incidents, I don't know how to deal with it," he told her before making lunch plans.
At lunch, he said how Kaiser never wants to go home because there is "no yelling or screaming" at his house.
"I want more visitation, I don't want supervision," he said. "I want Jenelle and David to pass a psychological evaluation and a drug test. I think David needs a psychological evaluation."
They then brought up Eason's gun use.
"I am strongly against unless a kid can understand the consequences of guns," Griffith said. "I try to keep calm. I'm extremely pissed off. I feel like a horrible dad. I'm hopeless."
"It's been four or five months since they've seen each other, which is a long time, but it's better than nothing," Houska explained.
