Fans feared for Sinead O'Connor's well-being when she tweeted out some pretty disturbing thoughts about suicide last week.
The singer tweeted:
"Psychiatrist says I'm a bad mum and mental for talking so openly about sex in public. I wish suicide wud kill me. I want to go to heaven so bad. Have for yrs. But I don't wanna abandon my kids. If I cud die without them knowing I did it myself I wud.
I'm so tired. 24 yrs of being treated like a crazy person. Can't manage any more. If any1 knows how I can kill myself without my kids finding out I did it deliberately pls tell me."
This wasn't Sinead's first cry for help. She tried to take her own life on her 33rd birthday over 10 years ago.
Luckily, Sinead came to her senses and did not go through with it. She later wrote an honest open letter about why she had suicidal thoughts on her website:
"I am not at all sorry that I wrote what I did on twitter. It was a cry for help and help was received. So it was worth it.
I have no shame around the fact that I can be shot into suicidal feelings by certain people's treatment of me. I am no different to any other person, I therefore act as I believe any other person should be free to.
I have often and still often struggle with suicidal feelings when I am subjected to this 'mad' Sinead O'Connor business. It's is wrong. Degrading. Insulting. A breach of my human rights as I see it, and most disrespectful."
We are so thankful that you came to your senses and did not go through with it, Sinead.
