It's been a minute since we've heard from Mama June herself, despite the whirlwind that has been her life for the past year. But now, she's reaching out -- and breaking her seven-month social media silence in the process. On Thursday, June took to Instagram to send out a plea to her kids, who she's estranged from, and despite everything that's happened, we really feel for her.

  • June shared a new selfie, and although she's smiling in the photo, her caption tells another story.

    June took the opportunity to admit that she's struggling -- and that she misses and loves her kids.

    She wrote:

    "Well decided to get back at it im not saying im.perfect as everyday is a strugglr n some days i just want to disappear n even though me n kids arent still seeing each other n its veen very hard on all of us but i hope one day that will cgange as i want them to know i miss n love them very much."

    This is the first time June's spoken out in months, so we have to assume something may be going on behind the scenes that we're not aware of.

  • June has been estranged from her daughters for nearly a year.

    Not long after June was arrested on drug charges last spring, Honey Boo Boo moved out, letting her mom know on an episode of Mama June: From Not To Hot that she wouldn't move back in until June decided to end things with boyfriend Geno Doak

    Since then, Honey Boo Boo has been living with her older sister, Pumpkin, and as far as we know, there's been very limited communication with June, save for an intervention that her sister, Dodo, seems to be working on. 

  • Now that June is back on Instagram, fans are rooting for her.

    Instagram comments

    There have been so many comments showing support on June's post, and we know that fans would be so happy to see her get healthy -- we would too! Maybe seeing that she has people cheering her on will help encourage her to do the right thing.

    After all, last we heard, June and Geno were getting fined for trashing hotel rooms, so hopefully, the only way June can go now is up.

  • We certainly hope June posts on Instagram again. 

    She has a lot to worry about when it comes to the future, between still not having a permanent place to live, her broken relationship with her daughters, and her legal trouble continuing well into 2020. We'd love to find out how she's doing, and hopefully, watch her put her life back together in the process.

    June can do this!
