Louise Thompson speaks out after having "catastrophic breakdown"

"Why did this have to happen to me?"

Louise Thompson has revealed she suffered a catastrophic breakdown this week.

The new mum said it all happened out of nowhere.

She explained to her followers that she had been having a lovely day before the incident.

Taking to her Instagram stories, a tearful Louise said she had "an absolute catastrophic breakdown out of nowhere.

"It's like my brain thought I was full-on dying again. Couldn't think straight or function for 40 minutes.

She said the incident was "absolutely petrifying".

"I literally don't think I was triggered by anything. I had to take myself away because I don't like lowering the mood for Ryan or others.

"And then I found some photos of myself in my bedroom and started screaming 'why did this have to happen to me?'"

Louise continued, "I was feeling so angry and sad for my innocent vulnerable self.

"My new anti-depressant is quite good for sleep so I take it in the evening and at least that helped me to go to bed and reset."

"When I'm stuck in those moments I want to die in a big way," Louise shared.

The mum said she is trying her best to focus and reminds herself that light is around the corner.

Louise has spoken bravely and honestly about her mental health struggles.

The new mum has been suffering from PTSD, anxiety, as well as other disorders since welcoming her son Leo.

Her followers have praised her for being so vulnerable on such a public platform.

There's no doubt her honesty will help others feel less alone in their struggles.
