FANS of Welcome to Plathville were concerned for show star Olivia Plath after she revealed she sometimes feels "suicidal" amid her family feud.
The third season of the reality series shows Olivia still at odds with her mother-in-law, Kim.
Olivia shared a video slide show of contrasting pictures- somewhere looked glamorous and poised and others where she was feeling far from her best.
She wrote over the snaps: "This posed portrait where I'm sucking my stomach in can also look like… side rolls when I lay down because I'm human.
"This seemingly confident person… felt like committing suicide in this moment.
"I have a beautiful sexy body and yet I have an unhealthy relationship with food where I always feel "fat" and starve myself.
"I look like a badass who has my life together… but I gave myself this burn in a panic attack induced car accident.
"I'm often happy and hull of laughter… "But there are a lot of times I lose it when I'm overwhelmed.
"I have a lot of photos taken from good angles… But not all angles are flattering, and that's okay.
"I'm human. Social media is often a highlight reel, but just know that you aren't alone.
"We all cry, we all break sometimes, we all have imperfect bodies and are doing the best we can."
Olivia captioned the post: "No matter what social media leads us to believe, we are all imperfect people trying to figure life out as we go. You are not alone. I’m human too."
Fans commented: "Please reach out… there are so many people you can talk to, including me. Hang in there fellow photographer! You are meant to be here, your life has purpose, and you are loved."
Another wrote: "Sending you lots of love and support if ever you need. Don’t give up on today because you never know what tomorrow will bring."
A third added: "Remember you aren’t the only one that has these kinds of feelings. You are beautiful! My daughter struggles with depression and anxiety. I do too. I take meds for it. They do help if you consistently take them. I understand you have some major in-law problems. Remember they aren’t worth ruining your life and marriage over. I wish you all the best."
Season two of Welcome To Plathville ended with a blowout between oldest son Ethan, 23, and his dad, Barry over how they had treated his wife which ultimately led to his decision to walk away from the family.
Prior to the start of season three, Ethan's younger brother Micah gave Us Weekly an inside look at what has really been going on between Kim and Olivia.
The 20-year-old started by addressing Ethan and Olivia's wedding, saying that his mother was a bit controlling.
“I think a lot of it was my mom trying to make it her wedding almost,” he recalled.
This tension between the two has gone on long before now.
Back in 2019, Olivia, 23, first addressed the tensions between her and Kim in an interview with People magazine.
“I have felt very negative about Kim,” she told the media outlet.
“Because even when Ethan and I were dating, I was criticized for what kind of toothpaste I used, or what I ate, or what I wore, or what I did. I feel like I was constantly critiqued. Literally, every time I get in my car to go over there, my stomach is in knots.”
