Demi Lovato: Bipolar Disorder Treatment!

Demi Lovato: Bipolar Disorder Treatment!

Demi Lovato has opened up about her struggle with bipolar disorder.

“I never found out until I went into treatment that I was bipolar,” the 18-year-old singer and actress told People, adding, “Looking back it makes sense. There were times when I was so manic, I was writing seven songs in one night and I’d be up until 5:30 in the morning.”

Demi shared that after treatment, she’s able to take control of her life and make healthy and positive choices. “I feel like I am in control now where my whole life I wasn’t in control,” she dished.

FYI: Yesterday, Demi announced that she’ll be leaving her Disney Channel show, Sonny with a Chance, to focus on her music career.

    I’m glad she’s so open abut it; it’s make her more relatable and real. Plus it explains when she snapped on that reporter when asked about miley.

  • carmen

    well, at least she’s accepting her problem and dealing with it, good for her !

  • Whatever

    I think everyone who works in entertainment industry has bipolar disorder. Next!

  • lexy hates bilson

    I doubt that explains why she snapped at someone. I snap at people and I’m not bipolar. But it is good that she’s talking about her problem and not ashamed of it.
    All the best to her. She’s very pretty and talented so hopefully her career will continue to move forward.


    I don´t understand. Now everybody have a BIPOLER DISODER.
    Demi look beautiful

  • Sun

    I know someone who’s bipolar too. biggest a-hole in the

  • lilo

    I don’t think she is Bipolar just because you snap at people doesn’t mean you are Bipolar. I guess she is looking for sympathy . It’s funny how nowdays acting like a B*tch can mean you have Bipolar. I wish she would shut up about her problems she is just looking for more publicity.

  • kaz simply Amaazingg !!!!!!!!

    Oh no good

  • commonsense

    Please. These celebrities, they behave badly and all of a sudden they have a mental disorder. Tiger Woods cheats on his wife and he’s a “sex addict.” Let me guess, Christina Aguilera is on the verge of depression.
    Own up to your bad behavior and drug use instead of doing such a disservice to people who really suffer from mental illness.

  • Isabella

    She is amazing to go through all that and to be talented and make many people happy, I’m sorry you have experienced this Demi!

  • Helena

    we did not realize my girl through it all and we did not do anything she needed of help

  • Helena

    wish you had not gone through that Demi, love you!

  • Kaylee

    Damn, so this chick is bipolar, has an eating disorder, cuts herself, and suffers from depression? That’s one gene pool I wouldn’t wanna be swimming in.

  • anybody?anybody?

    not to belittle the fact that shes had so much to deal with at such a young age, but in an interview she said she’s been dealing with things like the eating disorder since she was 8, so WHERE THE HELL WERE THE ADULTS IN HER LIFE FOR THE PAST 10 YEARS?!?? seriously, how can a parent NOT KNOW their child is going through so much and just be blind to it?? this is why Demi is strong— because despite the fact that she was the cash cow and the only adult person in her life, she got help before she did something truly dangerous to herself or others. plus she’s dealing with it in a very mature manner despite having every little thing about her life made public. shame on her parents, shame on her management. Demi is truly a strong, beautiful soul

  • kaylee

    oh my god, I didn’t know she was bipolar, I know how hard that must be for her. i’m proud of her for taking control

  • Fake

    In all due respect, is Bi-Polar the new “It” disease…all we need is a bunch of people mis-diagnosed and on more drugs…

  • riri

    She is 18 years old. This is what to you go through when you are a teenager!
    Stop medicating kids and teens for NORMAL things.
    Any writer or musician can tell you that when you got MUSE you can write a lot and then there are days of nothing.
    That can happen to adults who do not go through adolescence.

  • Amber

    I think it’s great that more celebrities are coming out about their bipolar disorder. It will be helpful to de-stigmatize this illness.

  • bb

    “There were times when I was so manic, I was writing seven songs in one night and I’d be up until 5:30 in the morning.”

    isnt that a good thing?

    Demi is an attention-seeking idiot. Just because you pull an all-nighter doesn’t mean you have bipolar disorder. It’s A LOT worse than that. What Demi is really suffering from is narcissistic and histrionic personality disorders. Read between the lines: she’s using her ‘bipolar’ disorder to brag about her song-writing abilities. If Catherine Zeta-Jones didn’t admit herself to the psych ward for bipolar disorder, Demi would have NEVER revealed her so-called ‘bipolar’ disorder! And now, apparently it’s cool to have bipolar disorder–wow, amazing to see how stupid and vain people are.

  • Belle
