Louise Thompson has shared a candid and emotional update on her health as she continues to battle PTSD and post-natal anxiety among other issues as she admitted she had been ‘triggered’ by ‘something bad’ last weekend.
The former Made in Chelsea star, 32, suffered multiple traumatic incidents which almost killed her after welcoming baby Leo-Hunter into the world with fiancé Ryan Libbey in November 2021.
Since then, she has candidly documented her struggles on social media, including fears that ‘she was going to die’ following a recent health scare, which saw her rushed to hospital in February after haemorrhaging at home.
On Saturday, she took to Instagram to share a montage of clips, both positive and negative, from the past few months as she reflected on how she was learning to cope.
Among them were happy pictures with baby Leo, as well as tearful hospital shots, gym selfies with Ryan and an overall look peek into her life since becoming a mum.
‘Does anyone else feel like they’re in season 5 of their life and the writers are making ridiculous s**t happen to keep the script interesting?’ she began in the caption.
‘I know Instagram is merely a snapshot of everyone’s life, but man my world has been mad. It’s just felt so messy. Medical issues have compounded every. single. month. and I’ve only just started processing the early stuff.
‘Now that I’m going through the timeline with my trauma therapist things seem to be getting a bit harder again. Urgh. She did say that things might get a bit harder before they get better, but I didn’t think that would actually apply to me. I never thought any of these problems would apply to me.’
Getting honest about her thoughts and hospital experiences, she added: ‘In fact I even found looking over this reel a bit triggering. How can that be? It seems so silly. It’s hard to find the patience.
‘To be honest if I were to create a REAL reel of the last 16 months it would be at least an hour long… there would be hospital appointments every single week, 50+ blood tests and it would be far too painful to make/watch.Louise has been battling multiple health issues since the traumatic birth of her son Leo in November 2021 (Picture: Instagram/louise.thompson) With her fiance Ryan Libbey (Picture: Instagram/louise.thompson)
‘I’m just dipping my toe in to find some positive nuggets to hold close to my heart at this stage.’
‘Re: therapy – it’s the same, we’re really just looking at an overview… starting to scratch the surface and focus on dates of significant events (there seem to be too many) and I’m finding it hard not to deep dive.’
She continued: ‘In terms of health… Gynaecology, gastroenterology, rheumatology, psychiatry, psychotherapy and now haematology appointments, what next? That is six different departments that I’m working with every month. It’s hard to step away from health with all this going on.
‘The mad things is that I didn’t have any issues before all of this. Yes I suffered with mild inflammatory bowel disease but I didn’t need to medicate for 4 years and I’d never even got as far as steroids. Isn’t it crazy how your life can change overnight?
‘I mean I’m only just realising how nuts it is that last July I was told it might be better to have my colon removed. One day I’m on holiday, the next day I’m in A&E with that news. Gosh we so take our health for granted.Louise was able to share positive news alongside her reel (Picture: Instagram/louise.thompson)
‘So here lies a short snapshot, and a reminder for ME that things HAVE got better, and for YOU, that things CAN get better too. (I had to change that from a WILL to a CAN because life can be uncertain).’
Rallying her follower by collecting her musings into a supportive message, she wrote: ‘So I guess the overriding main message is, keep going!!! Keep plodding on. Good moments will outshine the bad. You will learn to cope. And ask for help! ❤️.’
Discussing working with a life coach and therapist, Louise continued: ‘When I started working with my life coach again (I worked with her during the first lockdown and then picked up with her again mid way through last year) she mentioned that she felt that I had lived many lives. That I was an old soul. I am quite spiritual, so I felt that.
‘I believe that I am currently living the most challenging chapter of my life – It’s like I’ve logged onto the hard level… but hopefully, like the seasons, this level will pass. Everything always passes.The influencer was recently rushed into hospital again after haemorrhaging at home (Picture: Instagram/louise.thompson)
‘These thoughts and feelings seem to be taking a damn long time to process… I’m actually very bored by how much time they are taking time to shift… but eventually they will diminish into something totally insignificant… like that stick diagram with the little man and the big circles that get smaller over the years. I’ll reference it on my stories.’
Louise then reflected on the progress she had been able to make since becoming a parent.
‘In fact some days I have are totally 100% normal. Like yesterday… and the day before. It’s only when I reflect back (like I do in therapy) that I realise that this is a HUGE improvement.
‘Most moments I am totally normal. Last year I was not. It’s gone from 80% torture + 20% ok, to 90% normal + 10% rough. I’m learning how to take the rough with the smooth but some days I just want to feel sorry for myself.’Louise said there had been a ‘huge’ improvement in her mental health (Picture: Instagram/louise.thompson) She headed away on a skiing break recently with Leo and Ryan (Picture: Instagram/louise.thompson)
The fitness influencer then dwelled on her issues for a short while, revealing that she had recently experienced ‘something bad’ that she felt ‘triggered’ her, which she would share details on in the future.
‘Now that I’m feeling good more often, the bad can feel quite amplified. The flashbacks cause ruminating thoughts and make me on high alert for days afterwards and it can feel like quite a negative cycle.
‘Plus something bad happened to me last weekend which I think triggered me. I’ll go into it later.Posting the video was a big step for Louise (Picture: Instagram/louise.thompson) Have youComment Now
‘I just wish it was good all the time. My goal is to have a full month with no weird brain stuff happening. No drama. No flashbacks. No agitation.’
She concluded: ‘When my life coach (and actually my therapist) agreed that I was going through the trenches atm [sic] I have to admit I felt seen. It felt reassuring. It felt like someone cared. That was nice. I am trying to twist things in my head so.’
After posting her reel to her grid, Louise then admitted in her Story that she had been ‘scared to post that video for too long’.
‘It makes me sad,’ she added. ‘It also shows me looking ill and vulnerable. And I’m worried people will think I’m being too repetitive, but I can’t help it.’

She continued: ‘Sharing is healing for me. P.S. I really want to let go of my past.’
Louise’s followers flocked to her comments to share their support for the media personality opening up on her struggles again.
‘Thanks for sharing it all Louise. We’re with you,’ replied one.
Another added: ‘I see a woman who is the definition of strong and inspiring! This reel makes me cry because you are amazing even though I don’t know you personally I’m super proud of you Louise.’
