Leah's drug problems began when she gave birth to her youngest daughter, Addie, with her second ex-husband, Jeremy Calvert. Unfortunately, the labor resulted in a botched epidural. “I just went in to deliver Addie and they injected me like 13 times. Even in the hospital, like, I couldn’t feel, like, my body, like, I couldn’t get up and they just put me on morphine, a morphine pump. I kept telling Jeremy, ‘Something’s not right, something’s not right.’ And he would try to help me, but nothing was helping it.”

"I had enough, I was like, I want out of the hospital I don't know what they are doing to me," she continued, “By that time, I spent three days in the hospital. They weren’t figuring out what the problem was, they were just keeping me on medicine. It goes into another day, four days, and I’m like, this isn’t right, this isn’t right.”
