Louise Thompson has candidly admitted that she is ‘not enjoying living’.
The former Made in Chelsea star has been documenting motherhood following the “difficult” birth of her baby boy Leo-Hunter, who she shares with fiancé Ryan Libbey, back in November 2021.
And taking to her Instagram Stories on Wednesday 16 March, the 31 year old former reality star spoke openly and honestly about her mental health to her followers.
Days after stating she was “breaking her anxious cycle”, Louise wrote: “Anxiety has been pretty bad since I went up on medication. The inner voice chatting away in my head can be overwhelmingly powerful. I hate it.”
Louise continued: “It’s frustrating because it really succeeds in slowing down my recovery.”
Sharing a bathroom selfie of herself in casual attire, Louise continued to relay her thoughts to her followers.
“I am proud of myself though because yesterday I lent into my anxiety, and I managed the gym, a swim and a short visit and a short visit from my godmother who is staying within my mum all the way from the US.”
Louise explained in a further Instagram Story, that featured a floral background: “Yesterday I actually wrote this to myself.
“I’m not not living. I’m just not enjoying living!!!! I feel like something is blocking my head.
“And that was as positive as I could get. A nice reminder that I’m not not living. I am still here.”
Earlier this week, Louise enjoyed a family outing, as she told followers she was “breaking the anxious cycle” she’s been battling in the aftermath of her traumatic labour months ago.
She posted a series of photos capturing her time out of the house with four-month-old son Leo-Hunter and Ryan as she captioned them: “First proper family outing… breaking that anxious cycle #4monthold #postnatalrecovery #ptsd #anxietyrecovery”.
The star could be seen sitting outside a café wearing a camel coat with a white furry trim and matching wide-leg trousers, gazing over baby Leo, who was captured sitting on his mum’s lap wrapped in a blanket whilst wearing a beanie.
Louise’s family outing comes after she recently revealed that she was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) following her son’s difficult birth in November.
The TV star spent five weeks in hospital after welcoming her first child and developed a phobia of going outside.
