The star also stated that she doesn't believe she is now mentally ill, but said that she did attempt to commit suicide seven times in a year.

"She was insistent that her goal was to destigmatize mental illness", he also said in his intro. "It's not easy for families of mentally ill people", she continued.

Sinead O'Connor has given an emotional interview about her troubled life and reveals she is "fed up of being defined as the insane person".

Last month, Sinead broke down in a distressing 12-minute video shared to her Facebook.

"The first thing that came to mind, actually, is that she's dead", she said, admitting it was a unusual thing to say. "I thought it would be better, maybe my family might [reach out to me], if they saw how I'm feeling, they would relate to it", she said.

"I miss her horribly. She was a person who took delight and smile in hurting you", Sinead (pictured on the right as a child) says of her mother (L).

Sinead O'Connor's Dr. Phil episode premieres Tuesday, September 12th.

He said: "You've seen her video she's posted on Facebook and all, from motel rooms in New Jersey".

"She ran a torture chamber", the star claimed in the clip released by the Daily Mail. Suddenly all the people who are supposed to be loving you and taking care of you are treating you like s**t.

Weeping, Sinead said: "I'm all by myself". "Obviously I want to be really careful because I love my family and I don't blame them".

She opened up to Dr. Phil about a number of suicide attempts, which she believe were brought on by a hysterectomy operation. While speaking to Dr. Phil McGraw, a clinical and forensic psychologist, the Nothing Compares 2 U singer opened up about her mother, Marie, and revealed why she ran away when she was just 13. Too many musicians are dying.

"Writing would do me so much good, to start making some bloody music!" she told Dr Phil. "I didn't talk to her for about nine months". Mental illness, it's like drugs, it doesn't give a s**t who you are, and equally what's worse, it's the stigma, it doesn't give a s**t who you are. Phil spent a portion of the introduction very deliberately explaining that appearing on the show was something Sinead wanted (lest you think this was a retread of that ghoulish Shelley Duvall interview in November). "But I cannot wait until the day that I naturally get to heaven so that I can see my mother again".
