Sinead O’Connor Had A Breakdown on Twitter

After Sinead O’Connor went and got married to a man she’d known for a couple of months, announced she was getting divorced a couple of weeks after that, then reunited with her husband a few weeks after THAT, many of us came to the conclusion that perhaps Sinead needed to consider the possibility that she might need to seek out some psychiatric help. It was just so obvious that this woman was mentally unstable, wasn’t it?

Well, luckily for Sinead and everyone close to her, she finally realized this herself, and today she hopped on Twitter to discuss these issues. It was intense, a little scary, and very sad, but it has a happy ending, I promise!

i realise i will be in trouble 4 doing this but.. ireland is a VERY hard place to find help in. So having tried other ways 1st im asking does any1 know a psychiatrist in dublin or wicklow who could urgently see me today please? im really un-well… and in danger.

That’s the scary and sad part, right?  But she came back about nine hours later, and this is what she had to say:

Wow.  Obviously it’s wonderful that Sinead found the help that she needed and is on meds now, but … wow.

So how are you feeling about Sinead these days?

  • Not to be mean, but I really think she neeeds to shut up and keep this shit to herself. Or herself and the people close to her. I wouldn’t put that stuff on Facebook, which is only seen by my average person friends, much less put it out for the press and people all over the world to see. I’m surprised that her husband is still employed, and she will have a lot of explaining to do in the future once she is out of whatever state she is in currently. Also, I’ve never lived in Ireland, but what’s the deal with the psychiatrist? Why can’t she get a referral? Or don’t they have phone books there?

  • I have always loved her music, but have always winced after hearing about how, well, crazy her private life has been. Sinead has been all over the map for years. I think the fact that she shares such intensely personal information with potentially MILLIONS of people is a strong indication that she is not mentally stable. I agree with pufinstuf-it is time for a psychiatrist, in fact, long overdue.
    I know nothing about the health care system in Ireland, although I heard from a friend who is an “expert” on health care systems worldwide that Ireland was “not a place to get sick”.
    But, Sinead has money, so she can seek help outside the nationalized system and pay for it herself (as many people in the US do already!) As for any stigma against mental illness in Ireland, I am sure the cat is out of the bag re: Sinead. I think any efforts she would take to seek professional help would be supported by those close to her, and all of her fans and non-fans.
