“90 Day Fiancé” star Larissa Dos Santos Lima is seeking treatment for anxiety and depression.
TLC’s breakout star from season 6 revealed she’s been struggling with her mental health ever since her first arrest for domestic violence against her ex-husband Colt Johnson.
Speaking openly about her mental health issues on social media Wednesday night, Larissa stated that she’d seek ways to numb the pain, even when filming “90 Day Fiancé.”
“l was devastated, emotionally exhausted, and my entire body ached from depression,” she wrote in a since-deleted IG post. “Sometimes, I was filmed while being on pain killers. I couldn’t move, do basic activities, or take care of myself.”
Adding the woes of her crumbling marriage to Colt didn’t help the situation.
“You all know how may marriage started, and how it ended in the worst of ways,” Larissa said.
Larissa, who is now divorced, added that she’s trying to turn her arrest into a positive.
“I now see that my being attested was a blessing, as l have the knowledge now to give back in a way that would not of been possible if it didn’t happen to me,” she wrote.
“I am so pleased to say, and so grateful, that the Discovery Group owner of TLC has offered me treatment through this difficult journey,” Larissa added.
Fans were confused by the star’s message because she started her post by talking about her weight loss journey.
When “90 Day Fiancé” enthusiasts asked for some clarification on the topic, Larissa was happy to chime in.
One fan in particular asked her if she was seeking treatment because she was addicted to pain medication.
“pill addiction? I am not addicted, I am doing my treatment for depression and anxiety,” Larissa responded.
The star has been through a lot since her first arrest for domestic violence.
As The Blast reported, she was arrested on January 10th and charged with domestic battery in the first degree for allegedly assaulting Colt.
Instead of jail, the judge handed her community service and ordered the star to pay some fines.
Colt filed for divorce following their fight and Larissa has since moved on with a new man.
