Cashmyer’s life was troubled; she admitted herself to a rehab facility in June 2016 at age 21 after she injured herself in a drunken stupor, TMZ reported at the time. 

An insider for the gossip site claimed that the incident – which left her with a concussion and black eye -made the reality star realize it was time to ‘get her life together.’

During her time on the hit show, crews documented the Baltimore, Maryland native’s struggles after she became pregnant while dating Derek Taylor.

The couple became homeless during the pregnancy after Cashmyer’s’ parents kicked her out of the family home and Taylor refused to get a job.

The couple split following their baby’s March 7, 2014 birth, and Cashmyer later revealed that she suffered from postpartum depression and attempted suicide shortly after.

She shared in a post to her official Facebook page in November of that year that ‘there wasn’t much of a reason to live anymore,’ Radar.com reported.

‘I have been struggling with a lot of different things emotionally since I had Genevieve,’ she wrote. ‘I was diagnosed with post partum depression and was on medication for a little while for it, but I never followed up with my appointment… My mood wouldn’t stay stable for very long, I was extremely impulsive, couldn’t focus, the smallest things would set me off, and my anxiety got worse, as did my depression and OCD.’

She added that she was given new medication that helped turn her mood around. 

‘I feel like my normal self; happy, smiling, talkative and thinking clearly… Things really are looking up and I am set on having the best possible future for my daughter and I.’

Years later, she walked back the ordeal and claimed she was actually hospitalized for an accidental overdose.

‘I was depressed due to the issues that were going on in my life at the time and was using drugs and drinking,’ she tweeted. 

‘A family member decided to tell the hospital that I attempted an overdose because they believed that would get the proper treatment I needed.’
