Louise Thompson says she's 'on the edge' and keeps 'going in and out of consciousness' | The Sun

LOUISE Thompson says she has experienced times when she feels she's "on the edge" and "going in and out of consciousness" while taking medication for her health struggle.

The Made In Chelsea star, 32, was diagnosed with PTSD after suffering complications while giving birth to her son Leo-Hunter with her partner Ryan Libbey late last year.

She has been admitted to hospital twice since and is undergoing therapy, while also taking medication to treat her anxiety.

Louise recently revealed she had lowered her dosage and took to Instagram to share a photo after collecting her medication from the chemist.

Louise said: "Not going to lie today has felt really rough.

"I feel like I'm constantly teetering on the edge of going in and out of consciousness. It’s like someone switched my brain on and off continuously throughout the day.

"I wasn't really prepared for these withdrawal effects. It’s such a double edged sword, because I don’t want to go back but going forward feels so hard.

"Why does it have to take so long for chemicals to adjust in your body and brain."

Louise's son Leo-Hunter had been treated in a neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) and she had been treated in the adult ICU after his birth.
