“I don’t think I ever truly recovered for any mental health issues that I had going on until I was, now. I put a lot of work in myself in the last eight months,” she continued. “I’m still not a person that I will always want to be or a perfect person by any means, but I am a strong person, that I know.”

Elizabeth Teckenbrock Apologized For Triggering Others With Her Story

Teckenbrock said she realizes that for some, her story might have been triggering.

“The thing I want to apologize for is I know that listening to other people struggle, something that you may have related to is very triggering for a lot of people,” she said.

“People battling on the internet, people talking about their family trauma, people talking about their abuse or divorce, about their children, I know that all of that is very triggering and very troublesome. And so, for that, I want to apologize to anyone that has felt triggered or felt emotionally hurt by the situation.”

She said that she hates that all of this drama was online because of her kids, and that’s the reason she didn’t address any of it publicly for years.

“But I do feel I had no choice. I had no choice but to defend myself,” she continued. “I want to say, moving forward, anything that I talk about is not directed towards my ex-husband. It’s just directed towards me and how I got where I am and the things that have happened or the things even that I’ve contributed in myself.”

Teckenbrock said moving forward, her content will be about how she got here, mental health-related topics, mom content and recipes.

In his video stitch of Teckenbrock’s crying cupcake video, he explains that he has full custody of their children, she owes child support, and an array of other things he’s alleging.

One of the three videos left on his page explains that he “tried to use the justice system in the past” and that it “led him to social media” to use as a “tool to hopefully prevent the next person from getting deceived and ultimately defrauded by my ex-wife.”

A follow-up video continues his side of the story.

“Finally, I want to point out the gross negligence of the ‘Creators’ who are making judgments without firsthand knowledge of our situation and misinforming their followers,” he wrote. “The added frenzy and mob tactics this has created has the potential to be extremely harmful to me, my ex-wife, and our children.”
