'Teen Mom 2' Recap: Leah Calvert's Meds Have Seriously Scary Side Effects

leah calvert teen mom 2One word to describe tonight's episode of Teen Mom 2? Stressful. First off, Leah Calvert has been dealing with Ali's muscular dystrophy and continues to battle with the insurance company in order to get her daughter the wheelchair she needs. But all the stress of parenting three little girls, along with her job and Ali's additional needs, has caused so much anxiety that Leah decided to visit her doctor. And the results weren't good.

When she returned, she was prescribed some anti-anxiety medication, which immediately took effect on her body. She was drowsy, unable to focus, and essentially fell asleep at work in one of the scariest Teen Mom scenes ever.


She was on the phone discussing Ali's progress when she started to slur her words. Her thoughts were jumbled, her sentences unclear, and she couldn't form her words. Later, when she explained what happened to Jeremy, she realized that the drugs made her feel "messed up." Let's hope she manages to solve the anxiety issues before they get far more serious.

Meanwhile, Jenelle Evans was also dealing with her fair share of stress. Nathan was days away from going to jail to serve his 30-day sentence. They met with friends, who reassured her that everything would be ok, spent time with one another, and all seemed fine. Until the day before, it really dawned on her just what was happening. But we have to wait until the next episode to see what happens when Nathan actually leaves.

To keep the ball rolling (seriously, I wasn't kidding about the stress comment), Chelsea Houska is still figuring out the legalities surrounding her esthetician license and why it was taken away. She was finally able to meet with a lawyer who told her that it might take up to a month to get the case resolved. Better yet: she doesn't even know if she passed the test yet. So until then, she can't work. Perfect timing and all, especially since Chelsea just bought her first house.

As for Kailyn Lowry? Her worries were all about Isaac. Up until this point, Kail and Jo have managed to co-parent fairly successfully. But the next step was to bring in both new partners: Kail's hubby and Jo's girlfriend, Vee. So finally, when Kail and Javi went to go pick up Isaac from his dad's house, the two pairs of parents finally met face-to-face. Amicably, might I add. Guys, they even went out to dinner together. Steps in the right direction right here!

What did you think of Leah's "out of it" moment?
