"My entire life is revolving around not dying, and that's not living", she added.
However, her mental health issues sparked a police search previous year when she went missing in Chicago.
A spokesperson for the singer has since said that O'Connor is now receiving care and is surrounded by love: "She is safe, and not suicidal". "I hope this comforts those of you were concerned".
ANNIE Lennox has called for support for Sinead O'Connor after the Irish singer shared a worrying video online.
In 2016, the singer - who was diagnosed with bipolar disorder more than a decade ago - revealed a successful stint in rehab helped her kick an addiction to marijuana.
It read: "Hi everybody, I am posting at Sinead's request, to let everyone who loves her know she is safe, and she is not suicidal". "I'm fighting, fighting, fighting, fighting, and fighting, like all the millions and millions that I know I'm one of, to stay alive everyday, which I'm doing because I love the people that are doing this to me".
'She asked for this to be posted knowing you are concerned for her.
Radar Online reported on August 9 that the South Hackensack Police Department was called to the local Travelodge motel after someone saw the disturbing video. "At that point she was gone and we never made direct contact with her". However, after a police investigation, she was found to be safe and well. According to O'Connor she feels "isolated" and said it is only her psychiatrist and doctor that are now keeping her alive.
"We heard that she has since been checked in to a hospital, and we have made periodic checks throughout since". "[No one] except my doctor, my psychiatrist - who is the sweetest man on earth who says I'm his hero - and that's about the only f*****g thing keeping me alive at the moment", the Grammy victor said as tears poured down her face.
People magazine could not reach O'Connor's representative for comment about her reported hospitalization.
"I'm fighting, fighting, fighting, fighting... to stay alive".
Following this, Sinead took to Facebook to tell fans that she had taken an overdose in a hotel in Ireland. "Equally you know what's worse is the stigma who doesn't give a shit who you are". Straight away back to my mum. because I've walked this earth alone for two years now as punishment for being mentally f*****g ill and getting angry that no one would f*****g take care of me.
