Louise Thompson expresses concerns she has bipolar disorder after traumatic birth with son

Louise Thompson has shared her fears that she’s been “misdiagnosed” following her PTSD diagnosis.

The former Made In Chelsea star, 32, experienced complications during the birth of her son Leo-Hunter in December and has been open with fans about her difficult journey with her mental health following the arrival of her first child with fiancé Ryan Libbey.

In a new post, the new mum admitted she’d been feeling “rank” over the past few days and wondered whether she’d been “misdiagnosed” due to experiencing mood swings.

Posting a photo of her hand reaching out towards a yellow flower, Louise wrote: “Last few days have been so rank, I feel like I've been misdiagnosed.


“How can I be so up and down and they suddenly so so down on this medication with nothing happening in between? Surely I have bipolar?”

Louise has been candid with fans about how she’s struggled with her mental health after giving birth last year which left her fighting for her life.

She’s also praised fiancé Ryan, who’s been supporting both her and baby Leo as she continues her mental health recovery, and recently said he “deserved a million medals”.

Louise, whorecently appeared alongside her brother Sam in a fun online video, took to Instagram to gush over her fiancé, as she shared a collection of adorable photographs from a family day out.

In a recent photo, Ryan could be seen sweetly kissing his son in one snap, while another picture showed Louise smiling as she cuddled Leo in the sunshine.

The mum-of-one wrote: "Today. Ps. Holy s*** parenting with trauma is a challenge and then some. Mums (and Ryan) deserve a million medals."

Louise's followers were quick to support her, as fellow Made in Chelsea star Ashley James wrote: "He is soooo cute and you are doing so good mama," alongside four red heart emojis.

Louise has also been honest and open about her struggles with anxiety and depression online, and has continued to keep her followers updated with her progress as she recovers at home.

Despite her difficult few months,a source previously told OK!that Louise was starting to show signs of positive improvement in her recovery as they said: "The dark cloud of her labour is starting to lift a little bit.

“She's starting to be able to do a few things that feel like the old her, go to the gym, cook. Hopefully this is the beginning of her recovery."
