Demi Lovato has not had the best of life’s as she had problems with bulimia, self harming, alcohol abuse and bipolar disorder, but now she is all better.
Talking in a recent interview Miss Lavato has talked about how rehab helped her ‘reevaluate’ her life.
This is what the Skyscraper singer had to say:
“A couple of months before I went to rehab, I had a birthday party and there were a couple of hundred people there. It was full of people who I considered my closest friends. When I turned my phone on after being in rehab for three months, I expected lots of text messages and phone calls. I had four texts. That was a wake up call. I have severe trust issues but I try not to be jaded.”
Then she went on in talking about her friends and how they have helped her overcome her problems in life:
“I don’t have loads of friends. I used to, but then I realized, do any of them actually care? Now I have people who, if I break my leg in the middle of the night, they’ll come to the hospital with me. Or they’ll answer the phone at 4 am if I need them.”
Tom Fletcher from boy band McFly has reviled that he was obsessed about being the fat one in the band.
Talking in their new book Unsaid Things…Our Story Tom reviled all his strict unhealthy diet routine to try and lose weight:
“I was obsessing about being the fat one in the band. I wanted to lose weight, but rather than going about it the sensible way, I pretty much stopped eating.
“I’d go to Starbucks and order a frappuccino and blueberry muffin and that was me for the day. Not eating apart from my daily Starbucks became my routine.”
Also in the book Fletcher also talked about his battle with bipolar disorder and depression:
Not only would I beat myself up internally if I consumed anything else, I’d be in a foul mood if we were working somewhere there was no Starbucks.
“One day my car was in the garage so I got up extra early and walked several miles to our local town to get one. It was an obsession – and a deeply unhealthy one.”
With whats been going on the last few weeks with Amanda Bynes it’s got the psychologist thinking!?
After a few hit-and-run incidents and her license being suspended and her car being impounded everyone has been thinking about something could be wrong with her.
Clinical psychologist can confirm that there is a definite possibility that the former child star is suffering from some kind of mental disorder!
Clinical Psychologist and Clinical Director of Santa Monica’s Bridges Dr. Trevor Small has reviled that he thinks she may have a Bipolar Disorder:
“Typically when someone has never had any problems with the law, and all of a sudden has a string of legal issues, then this could very well be a sign that that individual is suffering from a mental health issue, such as bipolar disorder.”
He seems right as all the things he described match what Bynes has been doing the last few days:
“A typical symptom of bipolar disorder is when someone starts to behave impulsively, for example driving your car even though you don’t have a driver’s license. A healthy individual would be able to recognize that this would not be a wise decision. When a person is impulsive, a sign of bipolar disorder, they do things without thinking like shaving their hair off or drastically changing their appearance. When someone starts to act erratically and inconsistently with how they used to be, this could also be a sign of bipolar disorder. For example, locking yourself in a fitting room for over two hours. This is not normal behavior. Often times, the person will try and self medicate by using drugs and/or alcohol.”
This girl really needs help but with her being a celebrity it may take longer than her being a normal person as Dr Trevor says:
“Being in the public eye makes it even more difficult to admit you have a problem. A celebrity may worry about the impact a mental health issue could have on their career and personal relationships. There is a stigma attached to bipolar disorder that makes it incredibly difficult to get help. But help IS out there. Once that person is willing to get help and see a medical doctor, they don’t have to suffer anymore.”
Demi Lovato had a hard life as a teenager and now she has opened up about her troubles!
Some of you might remember the treatment she had in 2010 and has since been using her star power as a platform to raise awareness on such issues.
In August’s issue of Self magazine, Demi talks about why she used to cut herself, explaining:
“There were times I felt so anxious, almost like I was crawling out of my skin – that if I didn’t do something physical to match the way I felt inside, I would explode. I cut myself to take my mind off that. I just didn’t care what happened. I had no fear.”
Aww it sounds like Demi was in some darke places so happy that shes better now.
However, getting better is a daily battle in managing to stay on the right track.
As for how DemDem copes from day to day? She went on to reveal:
“I make time for myself and meditate. I’ve spent the past two years getting over an eating disorder and issues like self-harming and bipolar disorder. I have to work on this stuff every day. I’m reminded of that whenever I eat or feel down.”
We have to think about how brave she is talking about it in a magazine.
The X Factor judge confessed that she hasn’t even used her cell in THREE months, recognizing that she used to view it as a “crutch.”
As revealed in her MTV documentary back in March, she now has the words “stay strong” tattooed on her wrists, serving as a constant reminder on her road to recovery.
Demi Lovato experienced a complicated, convoluted reality that forced the teen star to grow up, very quickly…
She has recently spoke out about being diagnosed as Bipolar in 2010 while seeking treatment for a number of harrowing personal issues – self-mutilation, eating disorders, substance abuse – and how releaved she was to discover a scientific reason for her muddled headspace.
The beautiful artist revealed:
“I felt relieved when I found out. Like I’m not completely crazy; there’s a medical reason for all of it. It’s a daily thing; you don’t get time off from it. And if I feel myself slipping back into old patterns, I have to ask others for help, which is hard for me to learn, because I really like doing everything on my own.”
We think that her be a judge on the USA X Factor will do her good and really take her mind off the Disorder!
Fingers crossed anyways!
