Demi Lovato Shares What She's Thankful For
Thanksgiving is a time when many reflect on what they are thankful for, and Demi Lovato shared her blessings with Seventeen magazine this year.
"As many of you know, last year at this time, I was in treatment. I spent Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's Eve away from my home and family which is why I am so excited to be with them this year," the “Skyscraper” singer wrote in her monthly column for the teen mag. "Thinking about how far I have come in a year makes me so thankful."
Back in 2010, Demi checked into a rehab facility to treat depression, bulimia and Bipolar II disorder and now reveals, "I could not have done this without God and the amazing support from my family. They have stuck by me through everything and love me just the way that I am. That is a wonderful feeling to know that people accept the real you."
"Going to treatment was a gift and I believe it saved my life. I learned how to be strong and healthy even through struggles," Lovato went on to say. "It also helped me open up about my issues and share them with others. Knowing that my family, friends and fans accept me for who I am is the greatest feeling ever!"
