New mum Louise Thompson wants to die in lowest moments of birth PTSD struggle

Louise Thompson has opened up about her post-traumatic stress disorder battle.

The Made in Chelsea star, 32, and her fiancé Ryan Libbey, 31, welcomed their son Leo-Hunter in December 2021, however due to complications, Louise was left in intensive care for five weeks.

After the traumatic experience, Louise was diagnosed with severe anxiety and has been open about her journey with PTSD.

Taking to her Instagram stories, the star told her 1.4million followers that her day on Tuesday 21, June was going perfectly fine, until she had a breakdown that "came out of nowhere".

Louise wrote: "And then I had an absolute catastrophic breakdown out of NOWHERE. It's like my brain thought I was full on dying again. Couldn't think straight or function for 40 minutes. Absolutely petrifying. Literally don't think I was triggered by anything.

"I had to take myself away because I don't like lowering the mood for Ryan or others and then I found some photos of myself as a child in my bedroom and I started screaming, 'Why did this have to happen to me?', feeling so angry and sad for my innocent vulnerable self. Honestly what is going on?"

She added: "My new anti depressant is quite good for sleeping so I take it in the evening and at least that helped me go to bed and reset to start today as a fresh new day, but WOW when I'm stuck in those moments I want to DIE in a big way."

Sharing another snap of her in tears, Louise said: "I honestly don't even have words to explain the suffering.

"I just keep telling myself to keep going because light is around the corner."

Louise recently shared that she spent Father's Day with her fiancé and their son Leo-Hunter in a safari inspired lodge.

Sharing snaps of their relaxing weekend, the mother of one can be seen holding her tot whilst wearing an orange swimsuit.

She also shared snap of Ryan in the bath and Leo-Hunter sitting in a small chair and looking at the camera.
