Sinéad O’Connor rages against family after failed suicide attempt

O’Connor is in no better state of mind after surviving a reported suicide attempt, and she is placing the blame on her children and former partners.

O’Connor posted what read like a suicide note on her Facebook page Sunday, blaming her family for withholding her children from her.

I have taken an overdose. There is no other way to get respect,” she wrote, adding that she was in a hotel “somewhere in Ireland” where no one would find her until she was dead. “My children don’t care if I live r [sic] die anyway. Neither do their dads. Everyone is better off. Never ever do this to a woman again. Let this be your lesson.”

She was later found alive by authorities, but has posted another vitriol-filled rant targeting both her former partners and her children and blaming them for her breakdown.

“Jake, Roisin, Jr., frank, Donal, Eimear, I never wanna see you again,” she wrote. “You stole my sons from me. Then you had hypocrisy to come to hospital and then not be here when I wake and not pick up phone? I’m shit to you. You’re dead to me. You killed your mother. You stole my sons. You left me alone for twelve weeks! Why did I have to hear it was your hypocritical asses here while I was unconscious?? And now you’re Gone and not picking up phone? You are child stealing murderers, I never want to see or hear from any of you again. Why were you here when you’re the ones who put me here???? And where the f*** are you now??? Murderers. Liars. Hypocrites. All of you. You caused this.”

The frightening posts followed a series of angry protestations about the custody of her sons and how her family has been stealing money from her for years.

O’Connor believed she suffered from bipolar disorder for eight years, but in 2014 decided she was instead suffering from PTSD as a result of her traumatic childhood and went off her medications.
