Sinead Oconnor - Sinead O'connor Recovering After Overdose

Sinead O'Connor is recovering after taking an overdose last week.

The 'Nothing Compares 2 U' singer - who made a desperate plea for psychiatric help on twitter yesterday (11.01.12) - has revealed she attempted suicide while in Los Angeles last Thursday (07.01.12) and almost tried to kill herself again on Tuesday (10.01.12).

She told The Sun: "I took an overdose. God wants me around - though I can't think why."

However, Sinead had recovered by Friday (08.01.12) to wow guests - including Glenn Close - at a cocktail party celebrating the release of the 'Albert Nobbs' soundtrack, where she performed the film's theme tune 'Lay Your Head Down'.

Sinead - who has four children from previous relationships - has been finding it difficult to cope with opposition to her whirlwind marriage, split and reunion with fourth husband Barry Herridge, who she tied the knot with in December.

She was inundated with wellwishers offering contact details for psychiatrists near her home in Wicklow, Ireland, yesterday and has revealed she will be treated for short term depression with medication after getting advice when she went to hospital for a broken ankle.

Sinead wrote: "hey... wanna thank all SO much for such great help today. have a number of numbers, contacts, etc now and appointments ... spoke to some great psych docs u all put me on to, gonna meet a few.. but had go hos as fractured ankle (Good work funny ways)
