“Hi everybody, I am posting at Sinead’s request, to let everyone who loves her know she is safe, and she is not suicidal,” read the new anonymous post, shared Monday night. “She is surrounded by love and receiving the best of care. She asked for this to be posted knowing you are concerned for her. I won’t respond to any questions, so please understand. I hope this comforts those of you were concerned.”
On August 3rd, O’Connor filmed a 12-minute video from a motel room in New Jersey where she said she was living alone. The singer alluded to suicidal thoughts at several points: “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 thing keeping me alive at the moment … And that’s kind of pathetic.” Elsewhere, O’Connor said,
“My entire life is revolving around not dying, and that’s not living. And I’m not going to die, but still, this is no way for people to be living.”
O’Connor also spoke to others struggling with mental illness and said she hoped her video might provide some help.
“I’m fighting, fighting, fighting, fighting, and fighting – like all the millions and millions that I know I’m one of – to stay alive everyday, which I’m doing because I love the people that are doing this to me. I’m not staying alive for me. If it were me, I’d be gone.”
