Demi Lovato on bipolar struggle

Posted on Apr 30 2014 - 3:00pm by Anne Smith

Demi Lovato has discussed her public battle with bipolar disorder.

The Disney star announced her diagnosis in April 2011 after she had entered rehab to cope with a long string of issues.

“It’s a daily thing. I treat it with medication,” she told Cosmopolitan for Latinas. “Not everybody does that, but for me it works.

“That’s what works for me – medicating, checking in with people, being honest, and being grateful for things.”


She added:

“When I was younger, I needed someone in the spotlight to idolise, who stood for positivity and light and happiness, and wanted to change the world.

“And because I didn’t have that, I realised, I want to do that, if only for my 12-year-old little sister.”
