Entertainment News: Sinead O’Connor “safe and well” after suicide attempt.

After her supposed overdose attempt, Sinead O’Connor wrote a dramatic new note to her kids and their fathers on Monday, Nov. 30, blaming certain family members by name for provoking her suicidal thoughts. “Jake, Roisin, Jr., frank, Donal, Eimear, I never wanna see you again,” the “Nothing Compares 2 U” singer, 48, wrote to her exes on Facebook. “You stole my sons from me. The singer Sinead O’Connor is reportedly receiving medical treatment after a worrying message about taking an ‘overdose’ was posted on her Facebook page.

Sinead O’Connor’s possible suicide post got more than 6,000 “likes” on Facebook — but a meaningless mouseclick is no substitute for getting the depressed person what he or she really needs: help. “Time is anybody’s ally. The vast majority of people struggling with thoughts of suicide, if given time, can talk themselves out of the immediate crisis,” says Garra Lloyd-Lester of the Suicide Prevention Center of New York State. “Encourage them to reach out for help.” Facebook has partnered with the Suicide Prevention Lifeline to offer online crisis services so that people in distress can get professional help stat. I’m s–t to you.” In return, O’Connor had some things to say to her four kids including her sons Jake, 28, Shane, 11, and Yeshua, 8, and her daughter, Roisin, 19. “You’re dead to me.

It seems being kept away from her children drove her to the edge. “There is only so much any woman can be expected to bear,” O’Connor wrote. “What was done to me this week was appalling cruelty. In the lengthy message posted two hours ago, O’Connor, who has four children, said she was “broken by events during this week and claimed to have been subject to “appalling cruelty”.

By my husband, my family, by St Pats and by An Gardai Siochana, by my son, Jake and by Donal Lunny and Angela Singleton, by my son’s girlfriend, his friends… after everything I’ve been put through and been forced to go through alone… Gardai Police were alerted to her message and found O’Connor, according to the Irish Examiner. I am not at home, I’m at a hotel, somewhere in ireland, under another name.” In her posting, O’Connor had called out her family for abandoning her in the months since she had a hysterectomy in August. The mother of four also has reportedly been in the midst of a visitation battle with the father of her youngest son. “Apparently I’m scum and deserve to be abandoned and treated like s–t even when I’ve had my womb and ovaries chopped out and my child is frighteningly sick,” she wrote. “I’m such a rotten horrible mother and Person, that I’ve been alone. Then click on the result, “How do I help someone who has posted suicidal content on the site,” and fill out a form with the name and web address of the user, and any other relevant information.

O’Connor said her family doesn’t deem her valuable, adding, “They wouldn’t know if I was dead until weeks from now if I wasn’t f–king informing them now.” This is not her first reported suicide attempt. Ruth Sutherland, Samaritans’ CEO said, “Our research shows that many people find social media to be a crucial outlet when they are struggling to cope. The Facebook team will also work to take the alarming posts down to nip any copycats in the bud. “Many people that have begun thinking baout suicide as an option feel lonely, they feel invisible, they feel isolated,” says Lloyd-Lester. “And if they’re seeing a lot of positive attention toward someone either thinking about suicide openly online, or who has already completed suicide, there is a glamorization around that … might encourage others.” As of Monday morning, however, O’Connor’s distressing status update had been shared more than 4,500 times. US singer Tamar Braxton, who was due to perform as part of the BET Experience on December 12, has cancelled her trip to South Africa after being hospitalised with blood clots on her lungs.

If you are concerned about someone you know, or are experiencing difficult feelings, talking through whatever is getting to you can make all the difference – it can be life saving.” In an Instagram message, Braxton said: “After yesterday’s final #dwts ( Dancing With The Stars) performance I went back to the hospital (after the doctors didn’t want me to leave in the first place) only to find out that I don’t have pneumonia but something way more serious and that is having several P.E.‘s (blood clots in both sides of my lungs). Of course, if your loved one claims to have already harmed him or herself, the first, best call is to 911, experts say. “Then you’re looking at rendering physical First Aid, so you should notify the authorities as soon as possible,” says Lloyd-Lester.

But in this case, my health is my current obstacle… And in TRUE #tamartian form I must go about this the exact same way as I would anything else”. After “several calls” were made to police about the social media update, a spokesman at Dublin, Ireland’s Pearse Street Garda Station told Us Weekly that the songstress was “safe and well.” In her original post, O’Connor wrote that her family abandoned her following her hysterectomy this past August. “I have taken an overdose,” she wrote on Sunday. “There is no other way to get respect.
