Sinead O' Connor was supposed to be embarking on a huge world tour. It was going to be a comeback of sorts and with all the publicity she has received lately with her on again/off again marriage to the drug counselor and her love of drugs making it quite ironic, this was her time to make some money. Instead she canceled the entire thing because of her bipolar disorder.
She wrote that she is "very unwell," and that her doctor advised her not to do anything because of the breakdowns she has suffered in the first part of the year. I think that is solid advice. No tour is worth your health. You would think that with all the advances in science she could take some medications to help her improve her ability to function, but then again, giving medicine to a drug addict also comes with some risks too. I wish her the best because she has gone through one of a year which is kind of like every year for people with a bipolar disorder. My question to the doctors and nurses here is that she has always seemed to be able to live with the disorder in the past and it has really just surface recently. Why do you think no one noticed before?
