Sinead O’Connor has been found after posting a disturbing Facebook post in which she claimed to have taken an overdose on Sunday, Nov. 29.

“Sinead is safe and well,” a spokesman at the Pearse Street Garda Station in Dublin, Ireland, tells Us Weekly, adding that the police station received “several calls” after O’Connor, 48, posted the note.

“The last two nights have finished me off,” the “Nothing Compares 2 U” singer wrote in a disturbing Facebook post. “I have taken an overdose. There is no other way to get respect. I am not at home, I’m at a hotel, somewhere in Ireland, under another name. There is only so much a woman can be expected to bear.”

In the post, O’Connor also called out her family, saying they abandoned her in the months following her hysterectomy in August.

“After everything I’ve been put through, and been forced to go through alone, they wouldn’t know if I was dead until weeks from now,” the mom of four added, also mentioning that she’s been in a visitation battle with the father of her youngest son.

“Apparently I’m scum,” she concluded. “Well done guys, you’ve finally got rid of me. Sorry the penny didn’t drop sooner. I’m an idiot. Everyone is better off. Never do this to a woman again.”

This isn’t O’Connor’s first suicide attempt. In 2007, the troubled Irish singer — who was diagnosed with bipolar disorder in 2003 — told Oprah Winfrey that she tried to kill herself on her 33rd birthday.
