Sinead O'Connor raised eyebrows as she reached out to her fans saying her "paralyzing agoraphobia" was preventing her from being able to purchase food, but later assured it was "all good." The Irish songstress, 53, has two Twitter accounts, one with an official blue tick for managing her professional business while another under her Islamic moniker Shuhanda Sadaqat. She used the latter to make the announcement on Wednesday, Daily Mail reported.

"Ok here goes a reach out. I've been secretly living with a physically paralyzing, trauma-related case of acute low self-esteem for the last few years and months and weeks and am lately not eating..." she wrote. "[It's] because it's made me so agoraphobic I can't go to the shops. And I'm starving. I currently live in a very remote part of the country so take-outs, and or grocery deliveries are not an option...That's why I Have clearly asked ONLY if anyone knows of meal services for people with mental health conditions who's ability to self-care is diminished. I'd eat the f**kin' leg of the Lamb of God."

However, the following afternoon, however, she reassured fans and followers saying, "All good now : ) found meal delivery service : ) Am replete and happy : )"







Over the years, Sinead's mental health issues have been well documented. The 'Thank You For Hearing Me' hitmaker often uses social media to voice her woes. Her latest tweets noted her troubles amid the lockdown due to living in a remote area of Ireland, where deliveries are purportedly difficult to fulfill.

After she found help, the singer went on to assure followers that she was fine, social media users appeared to poke fun at the 'Nothing Compares 2 U' hitmaker over her tweets. "Agoraphobia so bad, she'd eat the Lamb of God if someone would deliver! WTF!" one tweeted in response. "Her singing to Connor McGregor walkout music was legendary and that was just 3 yrs ago," another added. "Oh if she could only ask the pope for some of Vatican's gold, but she shred that chance to pieces," a third wrote. "It says on her page she donates all proceeds to BLM maybe she needs to eat first!" a fourth quipped.





Last month, the priest-turned-musician detailed her decision to train to become a healthcare assistant during an appearance on The Ryan Tubridy Show on RTÉ Radio 1. "That's something that I wanted to do for years, it's not because of the Covid thing, it's not that I'm rushing to the frontline," she explained. "The area that I want to work in ultimately is palliative care. The 28th of September, that's it, head down, it's just one year...that's how I'm making use of the time. I had a whole year of shows booked... That's how I'm making use of the fact that I'm unemployed for the year."

According to her, being a healthcare assistant was something she aspired to be "since [she] was a child."

"A huge impetus for me was one of my best friends in the world actually died about five years ago," she said. "He asked me one night would I sleep in the bed with him when he found out he was dying and I told him I would but in the end, I was too frightened and I didn't."

"I felt from then I would never leave a person alone and I let my friend down very badly. I didn't get into the bed with him because I was so frightened...of death and dying and of him dying," Sinead added.
