3 strokes and a heart attack. Most people don't get them until their 60's and 70's, and she had both at 26. Damn. She is resilient as hell.
Zoey Martinez
Zoey Martinez:
What she needs to do is delete her social media, put her career on hold, we get it girl, you have so much talent, but please REALLY focus on your self.
She keeps coming back and it’s only hurting her because she ends up on square one. She needs to stop. It’s like watching a train wreck. She’s done like how many of these documentaries ? She hasn’t done any progress 💔 fame isn’t helping her. She clearly has all the money she could ever need, and it’s the fame that doesn’t let her focus on her true self. Every time she gets up she falls back even harder. Enough of being famous and in the public eye. She needs to put an end to it for HER.
It’s really sad

Update: i don’t hate her. I really like her voice and music, but she has gotten to an age where it’s far from acceptable to continue with poor choices and behavior. She can keep making music, that’s her passion, but what I’m saying is she needs to disengage from certain things and focus on her and not the outside world.

Honestly I don’t doubt that Demi has had a hard life but I almost feel like she is addicted to this cycle of acting out, apologizing and disclosing private struggles, and then soaking in the outpouring of affection from the public.

She keeps coming out with abuse issues and makes us feel bad for her over and over. This is like an unhealthy relationship that never goes anywhere. I don’t know if we’re contributing or not. But, I hope she just leaves pop star life behind and start a new chapter. Being a public figure is toxic and someone close to her just needs to pull her out of it already.

This will help other people open up and be honest about their addiction. I pray for Demi and everyone with these issues. It affects the person and the entire family.

Lost a best friend to heroin. It takes way more strength than the average person has to ask for help let alone commit to the help. Bless this woman. Keep fighting Demi!
L M:
She cannot do drugs again. She won't survive another relapse. Hoping Demi commits to her sobriety for the rest of her life! 🙏♥️ We love you Demi!

3 strokes?? That the 3 strikes and you're out man, how is she still walkin
I don't believe her saying she's better anymore I feel like we heard this a dozen times by now

Her career has become based on sensationalism.

She's thrives on attention and I wish she'd just stay out of the limelight and get herself healthy in mind, body and spirit.

This behavior isn't brave, it's attention seeking behavior.

I see strokes and heart attacks in patients 60+, not 20s...that’s insane. So happy she pulled through. It’s an ongoing battle but she seems strong as hell. 💜

Demi needs help, not this weird exploitation promotion for her doc. She needs to retire/reset. 💚🙏💫

Every time I hear about her it’s because she OD’d or health problems, juice wrld OD’d and died but god keep giving you chances to get healthy and clean , please do better Demi !

Prayers to her that Demi's story can inspire others struggling with addiction and mental health. God bless her 🙏🏾❤
K J:
"Don't dance with the devil 👿, don't dance at night, don't dance with the devil 👿, cause it ain't right" playing games with Satan has consequences.
She releases a documentary and an album after every overdose. It's sad that her career is now based on sensationalism. But not the kind that people love to watch. It's the self destructive kind.

This goes to show when Jesus still has work for you to do here on earth, you will not be taken out. Wow. I’m thankful to hear she is okay and on the right path again. Thank you Lord for Grace and mercy

Wow poor Demi everyone is battling something behind closed doors so got to hand it to her I pray for her for to recover.🙏🙏🙏
Three strokes.. how do her motor skills still work normally? That is major damage
Torie Morris
Torie Morris:
There’s a difference in the way she’s talking to reporters and fans versus the way she’s talking to the doc crew.

There comes a time when you need to put your passion on hold, to really focus on what matters. YOURSELF. It is crucial to give yourself time needed, times 10. Going back and forth will only make it worse.

She has a purpose to fulfil, this is why Demi survived. Her spirit is resilient 🤲🏾
Damn... real people stuff. Just because they are celebrities doesn't mean they aren't invincible or should be judged. Because they go through shit just like the rest of us. We push them and we put so much pressure on these celebrities not realize the damage we we're causing
Demi is so gorgeous. I hope she surrounds herself with people who want the best for her, and not leeches.

I love Demi lovato, she has just been so much to me since I was little from when she was in Barney, to now her being my idol. I just look up to her so much and it breaks my heart to hear all this, but it makes me happy also, the fact it made her stronger, helping other people with a mental illness. She has just been through so much and I just want her to live her best life. Because she has been there since I was little, I want it to last longer, her song ok not to be ok, is my favorite song ever. And I can’t stand seeing her unhappy though she is very good at hiding her sadness. I just love her and her music so much, i can’t type the words I’m thinking but i just love her so much and even though she will probably never see this, I am here for her no matter what.

OK... There had to have been some sort of trauma that happened to her, last time all she talked about was work stress and her breakup with Willmar. Wtf happened to this girl?

Fernando Honores Ponce de León
Fernando Honores Ponce de León:
i feel sorry for her, but what she really needs to do is to focus on her career and stop lying about herself on social media. she is so brave to share this, but how many more documentaries are we going to see about her struggles? you need to get a grip and focus on your recovery. it is hard, but save your life before wanting to save more by sharing your problems over and over.

Skyler Gibson
Skyler Gibson:
This is amazing. She needed this. If Whitney and Michael would’ve had the chance to open up about their demons like this the tabloids wouldnt of been able to portray what they did and make it worse.
I love her talent and her voice. As for the person....please get off the world stage and get help first before trying to come off as a role model for everyone else. You need to really be clean and for a while before you can start talking about strength. Im sure your fans would appreciate you alive and healthier rather than in the spolight and spiraling down back to the darkness.

I sincerely hope that she’s sober for good and not just temporarily. God only gives some many chances and you won’t know the last one until you are gone.
She genuinely looks 40, that's what drugs to you! She sounds surprised that she's had a heart attack
Mental health is something is never talked about becouse people think it makes us less but that is not true talking about it makes us better and may help other people. I my self have really bad depression and anxiety and PTSD ans insomia and is so hard to over calm all the negative thoughts and feelings 😔 that come with this ilnesses and sometimes we fill ashamed of talkimg about it but we should talk about it becouse we can help other people by talkimg about and also help ur selfs ans specially in this times of covid and everything happening in the world 🌎

over the past few years i have seen so many people online talking shit about her because of her addiction. it's so sad to see the stigma still so prevalent today. i finally took myself to rehab for my addiction in june 2019 and i've been clean ever since, she is one of many inspirations for me. i'm so proud of her.

I just love this woman so much. Like I’m literally in tears because she has helped so many people in so many ways. She constantly continues to help me. I love you Demi! You’re an amazing human being and I can’t wait to watch! I’ll definitely be crying, so proud of this person that you’re becoming! In my head we’re like the greatest of best friends lol I love you xoxo!
David Parkes
David Parkes:
Demi is lucky she can even walk & talk, let alone sing after going through all of that. Seriously though, having even 1 stroke can be fatal if not cause irreversible damage to your abilities to walk & talk.
You’re a miracle Demi! I’m glad you’re still here. You’re such a badass woman. Keep going!
Roxy Roller
Roxy Roller:
I worked on a stroke unit for years and I’ve seen as young as 16 years old have a stroke induced from drug use. I hope Demi is in better health now. 💕
So basically, Stay Strong and Simply Complicated she wasn't true to us fans, but for this new one she 100% spilling the tea? I really hope Demi recovers from her demons and be forever happy.

Addiction is so sad. As a social worker in a nursing home, there are too many people that end up on vents for the rest of their life because of over doses. The youngest I've seen so far is 18! Just a baby! Didn't even get to live her life. I absolutely hate hearing these stories because it breaks my heart. Demi is soooo incredibly lucky. I really hope she realizes that. ❤❤❤
The healthy weight looks good on her. Glad shes doing well now!

If your doing drugs at any age you can have a heart attack or stroke. Drugs can affect your organs big time. That’s why DRUG FREE is the way to be and I’m so excited she going to publish this story about life. I Hope & pray she saves many lives. 🙏🏾 I love the ending on how she NEVER gave up this is so amazing.

Good for her demi Lovato went through alot I hope she okay .
Wow I'm so happy she shared her story. Didn't know she went through all of this I always wondered what happened to her. Demi I have Lupus and been through similar problems so this was good to hear her fighting through her trails and tribulations. Praying for Demi Lovato 💜🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏💜
She was lucky. God knew she had a purpose to send a message from her experience. Kudos Demi it takes so much to be able to share the darkness. I pray everyone who uses can one day find sobriety or chose to get help to obtain a healthy life .

What a story... hope her stories can inspire anyone who’s struggling and battling right now! Prayers to all
I will be honest with my opinion down here, so beware. I follow demi since the Disney days like many of you. And I come from a family we're addiction and anxiety go hand in hand. At the moment I am just really hoping demi is doing what she is doing because it makes her feel good. Because it helps her over the day to sing songs that she created. Not because she thinks she has to put another single out. Or I hope she puts the doc out because she really hopes to help other people with it. Otherwise I just don't get what all of this should do for her. It's just more work and stress. Especially when people will judge you wrongly because they don't trust the honesty of your words. But she just dropped a new song about how she cares what other people think. She tells miley (in a podcast) that she should call her, when she feels down. But when demi feels down she herself has apparently not the strength to ask for help herself. I think she can understand the problem but is not able to fix it herself. And I think if she keeps making docs behind a paywall she will build a career mainly on her tragedys and traumas. Not on her talent.

I would just vanish for some more years. I know crucial for a musician. But her life should mean more to her. As I understand she was already depressed as a child + self harm + the food obsession + drug abuse + her never getting a happy ending with the boys she wants, because they want somebody else + I don't know... 5 almost dead situations?! That's nothing you can overcome in 2 years. For some people that's enough for a lifetime...

Kudos for reading :)
