Susan Boyle released from health clinic

Susan Boyle's brother told GMTV today that the Britain's Got Talent singer has been released from a London mental health clinic and is doing better, the Associated Press reports. She was admitted last Sunday, the day after she came in second place on the UK talent competition, behind the dance troupe Diversity. Gerry Boyle says Susan suffered from an anxiety attack but now seems "a lot more like herself." Earlier this week, Susan was reportedly invited to sing for Barack Obama on July 4.

    Wow, her 15 minutes are truly up! She went from unlikely hero to mental illness within a month’s time. By the way, a panic attack is harmless (it’s just the accidental activation of fight/flight arousal) and it’s over within 20 minutes. She was sure in the psych ward for a long time. I’m thinking there’s more to it than simply a panic attack.

    Hey Jeff….not sure bud, but as a 48 yr old woman myself, I can truly tell you that in the 1990′s I suffered panic attacks frequently. I was hospitalized for a total of 4 times and over 50 ER visits with in 2 years. I am now a mental health therapist and have come a long way! But yes, the attacks are very debilitating.

    She’s too difficult to look at for me. Yucks. I’ll take Mariah and Archuleta over her vocals anyday.

    WE GOT OUR SUSAN BACK –THANKS YOU.. NOW, THE CD WE’VE BEEN WAITING FOR–SIMON COWELL?
    I HOPE SUSAN FLASHES ASHTON KURSHER WHEN SHE SINGS ON THEIR WEDDING ANNIVERSARY.
    SHE MAY NOT BE PRETTY TO SOME BUT ANYONE WHO SINGS LIKE THAT IS AN ANGEL. WHEN THAT SOUND COMES OUT HER, YOU WISH IT WERE YOUR WIFE OR GIRLFRIEND SINGING LIKE THAT. THEN, YOU FORGET THE BILLS FOR A SECOND.
    WOW!! SUSAN!! WELCOME BACK

    Jeff W, Thank God we dont have to set eyes on your face. People like you are the reason we love Susan. Breath of fresh air. Your looks must be exactly like your minds- pow!!

    Great news- and now for the album!
    I can’t wait…

  • Bea

    Great news! Can’t wait for the cd. Anyone think there is any truth that Susan has been invited to sing in US for Obama on the 4th?

  • RLG

    Leave Susan Boyle alone! She’s a lovely lady with a beautiful voice. I’d like to see all of you go from obscurity to world wide fame and still act normal! Not gonna happen. Let’s enjoy her singing and stop picking on her!

    I knew Susan Boyle would show that Scot blood and come out standing tall. She is a woman of great many talents. Her singing voice is outstanding, wonderful personality, funny antics, good sport and that wild hair is still on her head. Some superstars tend to lose theirs under extreme stress. I actually thought she turned it around pretty fast. Susan is a wonderful entertainer and will soar to great heights in the business. I can not wait for her to come to the U.S.A. She will do great things, including singing for the U.S. President and the Queen of England.

    I’m not convinced Susan is equipped for a tour or for the media scrutiny that would follow. I think the show exploited a vulnerable woman. Does anyone believe that her initial appearance was not scripted, for ratings? She was later quoted on the show as saying, “I just want to prove I’m a worthwhile person.” That vulnerability should have been cause for concern, not display and marketing. I hope she takes time away from the public gaze for a while, so her career can be about singing, and not BGT’s manipulated narrative. Will touring and crowds of fans really make her happy? It’s a sad story, and I find BGT culpable. I hope those around her are not thinking of financial gain, but what is really best for her.

    Even the strongest person would have had difficulty dealing with everything.
    Too much, too soon.
    But if untrained viewers saw her slowly cracking, I can’t understand why somthing wasn’t done sooner.
    Hopefully she’ll get a good management team and go on to live her dream.
