SIA: Don’t Bring Me Down Today!***messymandella***

    

    Sia, who always stood out among her contemporaries because even with the fame, she didn’t want the exposure or the constant limelight that most songstresses’ revel in and enjoy living through the perks of their success?
     Sadly, her battle with alcoholism and depression were all hidden behind her music. She cancelled tours due to her Graves Disease diagnosis. Personally she was falling apart after her boyfriend was hit by a taxi driver and killed just days before she was due to visit him in London. This moment in her life opened up her insecurities and ability to cope in life.
 Singer relied on alcohol to get her through live shows later became addicted to antidepressants and pain medication including Xanax and OxyContin, after being diagnosed with bipolar disorder, it was easy access to get her drugs to accompany her alcohol. Later she called her drug dealer and asked for two of every drug. Her dependency became so strong that she assumed that she had no way out.

Sia left instructions for her dog walker and the hotel manager, writing: ‘I’ve killed myself and I don’t want you to have to suffer seeing my dead body, but a friend intervened and Sia is still here…
