Demi Lovato's Bipolar Disorder Discussed In Candid New Interview: "It's Not Who I Am"
Demi Lovato has always been very open about her past struggles. Now, she wants to help educate others on mental health. Demi Lovato's Bipolar Disorder came to light in 2011 when she was diagnosed. Since then, she has worked extremely hard to get to a happy and healthy place in her life.
The 24-year-old got candid about her Bipolar Disorder during an interview with iHeartRadio's Label Defiers with ZICO Coconut Water podcast on July 31. She said,
The "Sorry Not Sorry" singer has been making big strides for mental health awareness. She didn't try to hide her Bipolar diagnosis. Instead, she brought it to light and helped a lot of people along the way. She explained in her interview,
Is it possible I love her even more now? Lovato has definitely made an impact among fans.
In 2016, an 11-year-old fan's mother wrote an open letter to Lovato. It detailed how Lovato helped her daughter cope with her own Bipolar diagnosis. The opening paragraph says,
I'm not crying, you are. Lovato's message has been consistent: Staying silent about mental illness helps no one.
As for Lovato, her key is to take it one day at a time. Back in 2016, she talked about taking things slow.
Hopefully, Lovato will inspire more people to open up about mental illness. Until then, keep fighting the good fight, Demi.
