    If people who are following Sinead O'Connor's tweets are confused, we can only guess how the woman who's writing them feels.

    Actually, we don't have to guess.

    Earlier today, the Irish singer launched into a worrying Twitter rant, practically begging her followers for a referral to a Dublin psychiatrist, saying she was in desperate need of medication and in "serious danger."

    "Morning," began her series of tweets. "I realize i will be in trouble 4 doing this but…ireland is a VERY hard place to find help in. So having tried other ways 1st im asking does any1 know a psychiatrist in dublin or wicklow who could urgently see me today please? im really u-well…and in danger."

    So what caused this sudden and disturbing downward spiral and plea for help? Continuing fallout and criticism from her ever on-and-off relationship with husband Barry Herridge.

    "The sindo article about them trying to lose barry his job and every1 being s--t to him 4 marrying me has spun me off and im ill and i desperately need to get back on meds today. am in serious danger.

    "Please email me at iamwonderful@me.com if u know or are a psychiatrist who can help me today…dont tweet i b away from computer i broke ankle have to go to casualty…iamwonderful@me.com pls..can any psychiatrist see me today an get me back on meds an help me without me having to go hospital?"

    Worrying though it is, credit where it's due. Sinead went on to note that her almost manic urgency was down to the fact that she wanted to get help before causing damage either to herself or those around her.

    "Me dont wanna leave me kids. Or f--k up me work. Im sorry worring any1…is just am sick and Ireland s--t for finding help cant think of any other way."

    Here's hoping she gets some.
