TEEN Mom’s Taylor Selfridge has admitted she was traumatized by her daughter Maya’s health struggles.
Taylor shared an emotional TikTok video where she looks a little somber.
“Telling my daughter’s health story… ‘at least she won’t remember anything,'” she wrote of the clip.
“I’m fighting back tears knowing how traumatized I am by this,” she continued in a second line.
She added her captions to the clip, which removed some of the color from the image to give it a more dramatic look.
The 29-year-old’s daughter, Maya, has struggled with a number of health issues over time.
Maya’s diagnosis of tricuspid atresia has worried her since birth.
Since then, she has had multiple surgeries, most recently in January, which entailed a three-week hospital stay.
Taylor put on a brave face as she addressed her daughter’s health journey.
But this TikTok made it clear that even with the support of her boyfriend Cory Wharton, 32, she was finding it difficult to get through it all.
