O'Connor pleas for psychiatric help on Twitter

Irish singer Sinead O'Connor sent out a desperate plea for psychiatric help on Twitter.com on Wednesday after admitting she was "in serious danger" without her medication.

The Nothing Compares 2 U star, who has long battled mental health issues, went online to ask followers to contact her with details of psychiatrists in the Dublin, Ireland area who could urgently help her.

O'Connor admitted the backlash from her on/off romance to Barry Herridge, who she split from after three weeks of marriage only to reunite days later, had sent her into a meltdown.

On her Twitter page, she writes, "I realise i will be in trouble 4 (for) doing this but... ireland is a VERY hard place to find help in. So having tried other ways 1st (first) im (sic) asking.

"Does any1 (anyone) know a psychiatrist in dublin or wicklow who could urgently see me today please? im really un-well... and in danger... every1 being s**t to (Herridge) 4 (for) marrying me has spun me off and im ill and i desperately need to get back on meds today. Am in serious danger. Please e mail me... if u know or are a psychiatrist who can help me today..."

And her wellbeing wasn't the star's only worry - she also revealed she was on her way to hospital after breaking her ankle.

O'Connor adds, "Dont tweet i b (sic) away from computer i broke ankle have to go casualty. Pls (please)... can any psychiatrist see me today an (and) get me back on meds an (and) help me without me having to go hospital?

"Me dont wanna leave me kids (sic). or f**k up me work. im sorry worrying any1 (anyone)... (I) just am sick and ireland s**t for finding help cant think of any other way."
