Sinead O’Connor Has Mental Breakdown On Facebook She’s Suicidal And Living Alone In Motel
Earlier this week legendary Irish singer Sinead O’Connor took to facebook to share a concerning video. Recording from a $70-a-night motel in the ‘arse end of New Jersey’ O’connor spoke for 12-minuted admitting she was suicidal and explaining her current fight with mental illness.
The video was captioned, ‘#oneofmillions’ in hopes of bringing awareness to the heart-wrenching realities of dealing with mental illness. The 50-year-old mother-of-four was diagnosed with bi-polar more than a decade ago and has struggled with depression and post traumatic stress for years. As well as being hospitalized for kidney stones.
She has been in the news over the years for numerous mysterious incidents all leading back to mental illness, revealing in the video that she is fighting to stay alive every day. Throughout the video you hear her speak on her troubles stating,
‘There’s absolutely nobody in my life except my doctor, my psychiatrist – the sweetest man on earth, who says I’m his hero – and that’s about the only f***ing thing keeping me alive at the moment… and that’s kind of pathetic.”
She also explained how difficult it is dealing with not only mental illness but dealing with the perception from others. ‘Mental illness, it’s like drugs, it doesn’t give a s*** who you are, and equally what’s worse, it’s the stigma.’ Said O’Connor, ‘it doesn’t give a s*** who you are….Suddenly all the people who are supposed to be loving you and taking care of you are treating you like s***. It’s like a witch hunt.’
She also posted the address of the hotel where she was apparently staying. However since the video went viral the motel has stated that they have no record of O’connor staying at the motel.
Since the video friends and fans have come out and showed support throughout social media and on Sinead O’Connor’s facebook. Yesterday a statement was made through her facebook addressing her well being.
Sinead O’Connor rose to fame in the 90s with her hauntingly beautiful vocals and mysterious lyrics. We hope that the troubled singer receives the help needed soon.
