"The last two nights finished me off," she continues. "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."

"I don't matter a shred to anyone," she adds. "No one has come near me. I've died a million times already with the pain of it. So yeah.. Strangers like me.. But my family don't value me at all. They wouldn't know if I was dead until weeks from now if I wasn't f***ing informing them now."

The lengthy note came after a series of troubled messages she posted earlier in the day.
