Sinead O’Connor Speaks about Her Mental Health

Has anyone here seen the video of Sinead O’Connor speaking out about her depression? (Link to video is below) I just watched it and it is heartbreaking. So many people have felt desperate, alone and unloved, like Sinead O’Connor. You can feel her pain and see the demons she is fighting. This is a human being who is holding on by a thread. Her words of not wanting to be alive should be taken seriously and if she has any family or friend out there listening, they need to reach out to her quickly. With the proper support system, she may be able to get through this. Sure she has a Doctor and a Psychiatrist, but she needs a loved one by her side. Many times loved ones do not want to be bothered with a person dealing with depression or anxiety, because they may see it as taking on too much drama or they simply think a person is over reacting. Sometimes they may just not understand what to do for someone like this. Honestly, all you need to do is listen. Someone who suffers from depression isn’t expecting you to fix their problems or change their thoughts, they just need someone to listen to them and acknowledge their feelings. It doesn’t take a lot for you to sit with them and hear them out. It doesn’t take a lot to pick up the phone and check up on a loved one. Even a simple text saying, “I was thinking of you, hope you’re ok” is enough. Don’t leave people all alone. Mental illness is NOT contagious! Stop running from people who need love and support. Please learn to be empathetic….it can save a life.
