Watch: Demi Lovato Opening Up On Living With A Disability

February 1, 2018 / 0 Comments 0 Comments


We love Demi Lovato

From a young age Lovato found herself feeling vulnerable, sad and withdrawn.

Her lifelong struggle with mental illness began without understanding why.

Since receiving treatment in 2011 and being diagnosed with bipolar disorder,

the singer has been vocal about her addiction, cutting and eating disorders.

We applaud her sharing her journey with her fans. With the world.

While things haven’t always been easy,
Lovato never gives up.

“That relationship is ongoing — it’s not something where you see a therapist once or you see your psychiatrist once, it’s something you maintain to make sure that you want to live with mental illness. You have to take care of yourself.”
Demi Lovato, to People Magazine

Now Lovato says that she’s, ‘bipolar and proud.’

The Ruderman Family Foundation commends Demi Lovato

and encourages more entertainers to share
their stories and help reduce stigmas about disabilities.

They can change our world by their examples and help the inclusion of people with disabilities in our society.
