Sinead O'Connor Posts Distressing Facebook Video

Sinéad O'Connor has been reduced to living out of a motel room "in the arse end of New Jersey" - desperately struggling to stay alive as she battles mental illness, she admitted in a disturbing Facebook video.

PageSix.com reports O'Connor is staying at a Travelodge motel in Hackensack, while undergoing psychiatric treatment for "three mental illnesses". Not to me, but the fact I know that I am only one of millions and millions and millions of people who are just like me, actually, that don't necessarily have the resources I have in my heart and my purse.

O'Connor posted the profanity-laced video on August 3 while crying through the majority of her talk. "The stigma doesn't give a sh*t who you are".

O'Connor said she made the video in hopes that it would be "somehow helpful". "And there's absolutely nobody in my life except my doctor, my psychiatrist, the sweetest man on earth, who says I'm his hero", O'Connor said, "and that's about the only thing keeping me alive at the moment ... and that's kind of pathetic". Sobbing, she said she had been living alone for two years, away from her family in Ireland, and spoke about how lonely she has felt since losing custody of her 13-year-old son. "If it was me I'd be gone".

The troubled singer-songwriter said she was 'fighting like all the millions of people' battling a mental illness. People who suffer from mental health are the most vulnerable people on earth.

She asked her children in Ireland why it's acceptable for their mother to be living in a Travelodge. "And I'm not going to die, I'm not going to die but still, this is no way for people to be living and I am one of millions". "All males who claim they "love" me are sleeping peacefully". You have got to take care of us.

"I'm making this video because I am one of millions. We're not like everybody. else".

"And I'm not going to die, I'm not going to die, but still", she said, breaking down.

Sinead did tell fans she intends to survive her latest crisis.

"I'm not doing this for me. If it was me, I'd be gone".

The star's followers rushed to the comments to share their concern for her, and urged her to get further help.

It is not the first time O'Connor has given cause for concern regarding her state of mind.

An official search was launched across the city, but it was eventually called off, with Sinead later insisting she was "too f**king happy" to kill herself at that time.

She was eventually found safe at a hotel and brought to the hospital.
