In April 2021, Kailyn claimed that she was misdiagnosed with bipolar disorder. The MTV star recalled a fight she had with her ex-husband Javi Marroquin. She took to The Things That Shape Us podcast to share the details with her friend Toni.

“I haven’t struggled with that in a long time. That was something I more or less struggled with as a kid because I’d gone through so much trauma and when I was a young adult,” Kailyn Lowry explained. “Did I see you when I went through the doctors and they had me reassessed and re-evaluated and I ended up not being bipolar?”

According to the Mayo Clinic, bipolar disorder is a mental health condition that causes extreme mood swings. In a 2015 episode of The Doctors, she admitted that she stopped taking her medication after it stopped working. At the time, she shared that her mother was diagnosed with bipolar disorder, which is what she thought she had.

Kailyn shared that she went through so much treatment for different mental health conditions, such as anxiety, depression, and mood swings. After she went through a psychiatric evaluation, her doctor concluded that she was bipolar. She decided to stop going through therapy and taking her medications.

According to WebMD, depression and bipolar disorder have many similarities. But there are plenty of differences between them. Depression is the feeling of emptiness or sadness that you can’t get rid of. It often goes by its official name, major depressive disorder or MDD.

Depression often goes hand-in-hand with appetite, difficulty concentrating, and sleep problems. Meanwhile, bipolar disorder has great highs and great downs. This condition is sometimes called manic depression. While you can experience moments of sadness, you can also have great moments.
