Leah Calvert recently revealed why she chose to expose her prescription pill use on Teen Mom 2.

On Wednesday night's episode of the hit MTV series, Calvert was seen taking medication for her anxiety and stress, and admittedly feeling "druggy," and while it may not have been her best on-camera moment, the mommy of three has no regrets when it comes to exposing her issues with fans.

"Thank you guys! For your love and support I know I can always count on each of you! Xoxo," Calvert wrote on Facebook, according to a July 31 report by Wetpaint Entertainment. "I'm not worried about the episode tonight I want to bring awareness to those that are afraid to admit they have anxiety, but also to make sure they are on the right medication for anxiety."

During the episode, Calvert, who had been stressing out over her daughter Ali's health and mounting medical bills, began taking prescription pills. Unfortunately, they only made things worse.

In addition to feeling like she was on hard drugs, Calvert told her husband, Jeremy, that she was "freaking out" and about to cry.

"I've never felt like that ever in my life. I don't like feeling like that," Calvert explained. "I feel like I'm slurring, I just feel really weird and I'm freaking out. It helps me at first and then I start feeling like a damn druggie."

Also on Wednesday night's episode, Calvert and her husband feuded over money, specifically her constant spending of Jeremy's hard-earned cash.

After Calvert put out $2,000 to get started as a consultant with Mary Kay, Jeremy accused her of overspending and expressed his disappointment that they've been unable to save, despite his high-paying career in pipe laying.
