Louise Thompson has shared a health update with fans after being rushed back to hospital last week, revealing that she has suffered from partial blindness due to medication.
The star is recovering after another hospital visit following struggles with her mental and physical health since the traumatic birth of her son Leo last year.
The ex-Made In Chelsea cast member, 32, has been vocal with fans about her health and PTSD. In her latest post, Louise explained she has suffered "partial blindness" during a scary morning.
Louise, who shares Leo with fiancé Ryan Libbey, 31, wrote on Instagram: "Already had my first panic of the day.
"Been on oral steroids for a few days and this morning I had an hour of partial blindness.
"I could see the start and end of words and/or sentences but nothing in the middle."
It comes after the former Made in Chelsea star, opened up on her most recent hospital visit with fans.
Telling her 1.4 million followers she is now back at home, Louise wrote in a lengthy caption that she was “not going to sugar coat things” after her “b*oody rough ride over the past year".
She wrote: “My rationale for doing this video was to try and help someone that might be suffering in silence or feeling alone but I’m not sure whether I will be able to achieve that."
She added: “My life went from a 9/10 to a 1/10 in the space of about a month. I didn’t do anything to deserve it, but sh*t just happened. I survived a house fire, a few near death experiences, a long old stint in hospital, and some CATASTROPHIC mental health breakdowns."
“More recently I’ve been readmitted because of some severe colon problems where I was about 2 days away from ending up with life changing surgery. It doesn’t get any easier, although at least this time round I actually knew where I was and what my name was," Louise continued.
Speaking to the camera, she gave further information about her ordeal so far and how she’d been dealing with trauma and PTSD since the traumatic birth of her Leo-Hunter, and a disastrous fire that completely ravaged her home towards the end of last year.
“About five months ago I had a whole week where I was lying in bed at night and I kept having all these racing thoughts about wanting to talk about my experience a bit because it’s been really bad, and not a lot of good has come from it,” she said.
“But the only good that can come from it is the ability to help other people. I had all these ideas and I basically wanted to share what I’ve been through because despite the fact I look incredibly well-presented, put together, happy, fit, well, I’m really not. And mental health is the most cruel, invisible disease ever, but I want you to know you’re not alone.
“I’ve had the most crazy year that could never predict… I had it all and its been completely ripped away from me.”
She added: “I had no idea that things could get so bad.”
She shared details of the intrusive thoughts she’d been experiencing following her trauma too, stating: “My brain was warped, I couldn’t think… past hell, past fear. I was scared of everything in my house, I couldn’t look in the mirror… I didn’t know I had a child… I couldn’t see, smell, talk, function at all.”
She ended the video on a more positive note, and smiled and blew kisses to the camera, despite being still visibly emotional.
“Things change, everything in life is transient,” Louise said. “Life will get better again. You will find joy, you will find happiness…
“Please don’t feel alone. There are ways out, so ask for help… There is no magic cure, this disease will teach you a great deal of patience – I never had any patience!”
"You have to keep going, you have to, because there’s too many people with physical diseases that have no choice, so please choose life, and get help.”
