Hey, can someone in Sinead O’Connor’s life please get her help that isn’t limited to 140 characters? The “Nothing Compares 2 U” singer put out a desperate plea on Twitter last night, asking her followers for advice in her search for mental health services. “[D]oes any1 know a psychiatrist in dublin or wicklow who could urgently see me today please? im really un-well… and in danger,” O’Connor tweeted last night. “[M]e dont wanna leave me kids. or f–k up me work. im sorry worrying any1.. is just am sick and ireland s–t for finding help cant think of any other way.” O’Connor’s tweets come after the singer allegedly admitted to Britain’s The Sun that she had taken an overdose of pills while in L.A. last week. On one hand … oh, dear god. On the other hand, thank you to anyone and everyone who happened to be glued to Sinead O’Connor’s Twitter feed. You done good, guys!
The singer seemed to be in much better spirits after her initial despondent tweets. “[S]o they wus fab help too.. but u all amazing to send numbers and ideas and i love u all so much for that and am feeling much better,” Sinead wrote. When you think about it, if it wasn’t for that whole “Sinead O’Connor’s divorce announced two weeks after Sinead O’Connor’s wedding” debacle, O’Connor might not have collected the followers who pointed her to the help she needed. And at least she didn’t post it to Facebook. There’s nothing less helpful than a “Like.”
