I was about as raw and real as I could be on today’s episode of my @9towineshow . I didn’t plan on sharing so much but I just know someone will relate and it’s part of where I am now. I talk about Antidepressants, Valium, severe weight loss, heartbreak, my bachelor audition clip, and more. I cried watching this episode back because I am so proud of myself for always following my heart. Please let me know if this resonates with you. This is why I did this digital series.

Where life lead her next
Kaityln’s boyfriend then got a job offer in Germany. She made the tough decision to go with him. Kaitlyn said, “Everything in me told me to follow my heart… but a small part of me was dying everyday that I wasn’t doing what I loved to do. And I think that was really hard for me and I think that would be really hard for anyone to lose that part of passion in your life, just to follow somebody else’s dream.”
She eventually went home and knew that life wasn’t for her. Kaitlyn moved home to her mom and dad’s. She was struggling with depression and not knowing who she was anymore. Kaitlyn went to the doctor and he put her on Valium. She liked it at first, but she also didn’t know what it could do to her. She began displaying some behavior that alarmed her family.
Kaitlyn said, “I had become addicted to Valium and I was about 93 lb and that is when somebody had to shake me and say you can’t live like this, this is not you. I’ll never forget my mom coming into the room middle of the night with YouTube videos of hypnotizing people saying, ‘You’re happy, you’re going to be okay,’ and she just played it in my ear as I slept.”
Kaitlyn’s life now
Of course as everyone knows, Kaitlyn made her way onto Chris Soules season of The Bachelor. Things didn’t work out between her and Chris and her next opportunity was to be The Bachelorette. She became engaged to Shawn Booth. The two stayed together for a few years then split. Now, Kaitlyn has fallen in love with fellow Bachelor alum Jason Tartick.
