Very sad. She is clearly not very well. I hope she is found safe quickly and seeks the necessary help/treatment to get herself sorted out.

Although I fear the worst this time.

Hope I'm wrong.

She has been making irrational rants on her Facebook account on and off since before Christmas relating to domestic issues which really should be dealt with in private.

It's very disturbing and sad. I do hope she can get the support she seems to need.

She has serious mental health issues.

It isn't surprising that her two younger children have been removed from her care but of course she doesn't see it that way.

Her illness will make her irrational and possibly with paranoia issues. The greatest difficulty from what I understand is realising and accepting she has a problem.

I love her music, I'm a great fan of female singers with powerful, strong voices. Hope she finds the right support and help.

Perhaps the most distressing episode was when she was in a psychiatric hospital over Christmas and she was begging her family to forgive her and come and visit her; she was so lonely.

Once she was out again, she was back to the hate-filled rants about the same people.

Alas, early this morning (U K time) she posted another hate-filled rant on Facebook to her eldest son so she can't be receiving any medical help at present.

More of her rant here, if you don't mind foul language.

It's not clear for how long she was in hospital - or if she still is.

What a hell she is in, poor woman. Pity on her family as well - either way they get condemned by her. I see she is tangled up with a god these days - years ago she was full of hatred for religion. What a mess. Mental illness is so cruel.

She declared herself a priest at one time.

I don't think that she hated religion as such, just some of the teachings of the Catholic Church.

She's back in full voice on Facebook. Apart from wishing that her son's father would drop down dead, she is fairly reasonable!

Poor woman - mental illness is so awful ...... and of course everyone detaches from you, which you can`t blame them for.

And there's also not much help out there for them either. They end up on the big scrap heap of life unfortunately.

There is a brief, but interesting I think, topic about mental illness here.
