Duh of the Day: Amber Portwood Admits She Has Mental Problems

Posted by PZ on June 13th, 2012

Amber Portwood has finally come clean. Not only has she candidly announced that she is very addicted to drugs, but she has also finally come to the realization that she is in fact, at least a tad insane. In an interview with ABC which streamed from jail where she is currently serving time, Amber said she would take drugs to kill her depression which would knock her out:

“The depression took over. I’d just take four to five at a time underneath my tongue, and nod out. I had more than addiction problems. I had, you know, mental problems, too”.

Explaining why she decided not to complete her stint in rehab, instead opting to go to jail, Amber said that she couldn’t handle the constant watching and just wants to do her time her own way because she felt too alone and struggled without her anti-psych meds:

“In my situation, I felt in the program there were a lot of eyes on me. And it was very uncomfortable. I was not using my anti-psych medication even.You know, I was very depressed, all alone, all bitter at everybody. I felt like that wasn’t the life I wanted to live, I felt like I’d rather do my time, and get it over with, and make the best out of the situation that’s been handed to me”.
