Susan Boyle, the British talent-show sensation, has left a London mental health clinic and is feeling better, according to her brother, the Associated Press reported.
Boyle, a frumpy-looking 47-year-old, won worldwide attention after her blockbuster performance on the television show "Britain's Got Talent".
Last week, after finishing a surprise second to a dance group, she collapsed and was whisked to the Priory Clinic. News reports said Boyle, a humble church volunteer who was living a quiet life in Scotland until six weeks ago, had cried for 24 hours following her defeat.
Her brother, Gerry Boyle, said his sister suffered an anxiety attack, but now seems "a lot more like herself," the AP report said. – (HealthDay News, June 2009)
