Louise Thompson hopes she has begun ‘real recovery’ from painful birth

Louise Thompson said she has “accepted the fact that my life may never be the same” after the traumatic birth of her son.

The Chelsea star, 31, was diagnosed with PTSD after complications from giving birth to son Leo-Hunter, with her partner Ryan Libbey, late last year.

In the first Instagram post to address her mental health since mid-January, Thompson revealed her son turned 15 weeks old on Monday.

Sharing photos of her family, she wrote: “If I could use a few words to describe the past month, they would be: SIGNEDED, ENDED, VALUED, AND ABSOLUTELY UNCHECKED. CONTROL.

“My brain is constantly erasing memories to try to protect itself and that is scary. Trauma and fear do not understand time.

“I remember a therapist told me that a few months ago and I didn’t understand what she meant. Now I do.

“Extremely scary episodes get stuck in your brain like a fight or flight response and they don’t get processed like other memories.

“They don’t leave with time. They get stuck in your subconscious.”

Thompson admitted she was “too scared” to post about her mental health because she “hasn’t even reached the point of feeling like a normal person.”

“The only thing that might help one day (notably I’ve even gotten to the point where I can think about my future) is that I can help encourage others to keep going. DO NOT MISS. ONLY KEEP LIVE. ONE MORE DAY.”
