Troubled singer Sinead O'Connor has been receiving mental health treatment at a facility in Nashville, Tennessee, paid for by the producers of the Dr. Phil show.

Despite the video's emotional pleas, O'Connor insisted to McGraw that she does not believe she is mentally ill, and instead is suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder stemming from a hysterectomy two years ago and a custody battle. It's not easy for families of mentally ill people, we can be hard.

"She kicked the s- out of me", she said in the first segment when asked what she most resents about her mother.

During the course of the interview, numerous topics were broached from suicidal thoughts, to her mother's abuse of Sinead and her brother when they were children, and how a radical hysterectomy in 2015 triggered years of her own personal instability. "I was flung into surgical menopause and I became suicidal, I was a basket case", she says.

She added in reference to the Facebook video: "I thought it would maybe be better if they saw how I'm feeling - they'd relate to it".

"I miss her horribly. She was a person who took delight and smile in hurting you".

Speaking frankly about suffering abuse at the hands of her mother, who died in a auto crash when Sinead of 19, she said: "She was not well". "Inspired by African Americans who did not want the slave name, I don't want the patriarchal name", she wrote on Facebook with her name change.

"It's a myth that people who talk about it don't do it".

"I'm not going to die, I'm not going to die but still this is no way for people to be living", she said.

"And there's absolutely nobody in my life except my doctor, my psychiatrist, the sweetest man on Earth, who says I'm his hero, and that's about the only thing keeping me alive at the moment... and that's kind of pathetic". "I was an asshole to my family". Three f***ing illnesses made me suicidal ... my whole life is revolving around just not dying.

The 50-year-old singer has four children from different relationships, and is upset that one of the fathers refuses to let her see her youngest child. "I'm willing to sit down and talk". "I don't know if it can be cured, but it can be managed". "I am nothing" while she was beating me". And from the size of your huge heart. "I can't wait to the day that I can get to heaven to see my mother again".

"I think this could've gone real bad, real soon".
