Sinead O’Connor’s Cry For Help… On Twitter

by (@kat_george)

Troubled performer Sinead O’Connor took to her Twitter yesterday to ask for help in her search for prompt psychiatric attention. According to UK tabloid The Sun, O’Connor confessed to overdosing on pills in LA last week, rendering yesterday’s Tweets (below) all the more troubling.

After tumultuously splitting from and then reconciling with husband Barry Herridge recently, she seemed happy, despite struggling with depression in the past. But now it seems like media gossip about her relationship has gotten the better of her, and the star, known for her public discourse with mental illness, has reached out to fans in desperation. We’re pleased to report however that things seem to be turning around in camp O’Connor — since yesterday’s pleading Tweets, she seems to be back in good spirits Tweeting, “hey.. wanna thank all SO much for such great help today. have a number of numbers, contacts, etc now and appointments” and later, “no am not to be bothered if anyone gives hard time.. so guys… do reach out.. however u have to.. it works. thank u SO much.” We hope everything stays sunny for O’Connor and that she gets every help she needs!
