He wrote: ‘Just as I thought I was approaching a time period where I could focus some energy into my own therapy and healing, Louise unfortunately still struggles with various things every single day and some of those symptoms are worsening.

‘We’re now back at the hospital (this time private as we’ve been so let down by the NHS) because Louise has received some alarming blood test results.

‘At this moment I don’t know how serious this is, but it feels devastating to be sat outside a hospital waiting room, seven months on from Louise giving birth.

‘I’m holding on by a thread, trying to work, keep business alive, earn money to support Louise and Leo, trying to keep up with my own ambitions (and failing)

‘It’s not like me to share stories like this but I feel so s*** at the moment.Maybe this unload will help.

Louise said she ‘just wants someone to fix me’ in her earlier post after a  recent visit to the doctor showed that her Iron and hemoglobin levels are low.

Sharing a solemn selfie with her hand over her forehead, Louise explained to her fans that it was ‘a good day yesterday followed by a bad day today’.

Declaring that she doesn’t want to be labelled ‘mentally unwell’, she explained the feeling of being overlooked.

‘When I spoke to my psychiatrist she told me to make sure that any physical health doctors I see take my concerns seriously. I don’t want to just be labelled as ‘mentally unwell’ – I feel that I’m often overlooked.’

‘Anyway, I just got some recent blood test results back that I had to pay for privately and my iron and hemoglobin levels are low which is incredibly triggering. To be honest quite a few of them are either too high or too low which I find incredibly triggering too.’

Louise, who owns activewear brand Pocket Sport and shares Leo with beau Ryan Libbey, is known for her passion for health and fitness.

But during the Story post, she explained that she has lost the ability to stay active and can ‘hardly climb a set of stairs without feeling exhausted’.

She detailed: ‘Pre my traumatic experience and spending all that time in hospital I was super healthy working out 4 times a week and living a good life. Now I can hardly climb a flight of stairs without feeling exhausted. I get the most agonising pain too. I just want someone to fix me.’

In another snap, Louise added the teardrop filter to her selfie, as she said ‘my poor body and brain are all over the place’.

The reality star opened up about her medication, sharing that she’s thinking of reducing her intake of it, as she feels ‘overwhelmed’ and then ‘numb again’.

She then reached out to her 1.4million followers, asking if anyone suffering from crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis has had issues with mental health medication – leaving a question box for fans to help out.

The candid post comes as Louise has been documenting her journey with postnatal depression after complications while giving birth in November meant she had two very close brushes with death. 

In November 2021, she revealed she had given birth but the labour had not been easy. 

She suffered complications and spent a month in hospital after giving birth to her baby son, being diagnosed with PTSD in addition to postnatal depression.
