‘I’d say yes, yes, yes to ev­ery­thing, and then get burned out’ Dolores O’Riordan on men­tal health

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - COVER STORY -

“What’ s im­por­tant is to be in con­trol of your own sched­ule, and not to lose charge of it. Also, you need to know your bound­aries, such as when you’ re get­ting tired, when you need to stop talk­ing, stop singing, stop run­ning, to stay in one place for a cer­tain amount of­time.

“Once you get to es­tab­lish those, then you’ re strong enough. I re­mem­ber when I was much younger I’d say yes, yes, yest o ev­ery­thing, and then I’ d get burned out. There was no one thereto help, though. When you’ re do­ing re­ally well, ev­ery­one is thereto help out, but when you get sick you wind upon your own. So look­ing after your health, your men­tal health, is very im­por­tant.”
