Another fan added: “Catelynn has managed to turn her depression into her ‘brand’ and that in and of itself is depressing.”
A following person responded: “As someone who has depression and anxiety my head is hurting just thinking about. (Brain fog mostly).”
An additional Reddit user said: “Wt-absolute-f. She’s incentivizing her traumas by turning them into cash, she’s never going to heal. She’s not an inspiration, she’s a cautionary tale.”
The criticisms continued as another person wrote: “I’m usually fine just ignoring clickbait from people – because usually it’s just some dumb story that’s irrelevant overall and I just keep on scrolling. But posting clickbait multiple times about miscarrying is just flat out gross.”

He recalled: “When you see her shaking and she’s got blood everywhere, it’s like, you don’t really know what to do.
