Let us pray for Honey Boo Boo

She maintains that the protracted custody battle between Lauryn Eifird and Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson’s mother, Mama June Shannon, was the “toughest years” of her life.

In a TikTok video, the Toddlers and Tiaras alum admitted that she had previously struggled with depression.

Alana, who recently attended her high school prom, recognizes that her life was certainly most tough between the ages of 14 and 16.

“I wondered if I would ever even graduate. “Honestly, I didn’t know what to do because I was in [a] really terrible deep depression throughout those years,” she admits. Right now, I honestly feel content with my life.

The reality star says, “I’m so happy I can literally say that I graduated high school with a 3.0 [and] I will be going to my dream college to be a neonatal nurse in [August].”

According to Yahoo!, Thompson will start classes at Regis University in Colorado in the fall. She obtained a grant for her medical education valued at $21,000.

God, I feel so good about myself. I’m not crying. You are,” Alana adds, referencing her accomplishments.

Mama June was compelled to move in with her older sister Lauryn after she was arrested on suspicion of having a controlled substance and drug paraphernalia when Alana was just 14 years old. On August 28, Alana will turn 18.

According to court documents that In Touch was able to obtain, Lauryn filed for custody in December 2021 after caring for her sister for two years.

On April 11, 2022, Lauryn was granted sole custody, and Mama June was required to pay $800 in child support each month.

Even though [Lauryn] didn’t have to step up [as a mother figure], she did, and you know, in our family… we’ve always stuck together, Mama June said in March 2021 to In Touch.

Beginning in August 2021, Mama June must do 100 hours of community service. Her ex-husband was sentenced to a community corrections program for 16 months.

Alana previously discussed the effects of her mother’s drug use with Teen Vogue.

It’s incredibly, really challenging. The level to which drug and alcohol usage impacts people is something that many people in this world are ignorant of. Sincerely, I wouldn’t want anyone to experience that. When my mother’s [drug usage] became seriously problematic, I had no idea where I was going to end up. She said, “I’m proud of how far I’ve come and of myself.
