Dr. Phil’s Interrogation –

March 20, 2018 – Appearing on his talk show Tuesday, pop singer Demi Lovato spoke candidly with TV’s Dr. Phil McGraw about her history with bipolar disorder, addiction, an eating disorder and self-harm. And while Lovato has managed to control her demons, struggles with food-related issues remain. “My eating disorder started when I was very young, and that’s something I still work on on a daily basis,” she said. “I’ve conquered my addiction and alcoholism in a way where I don’t even think about it anymore, but my struggles with my food issues are something I still deal with.” In addition, Lovato made the startling confession that she contemplated killing herself at an extremely young age. “The very first time that I was suicidal was when I was 7,” she said. She added: “I knew that if I were to take my own life, the pain would end,” she explained. “I turned to cutting and there was a while there where my mom was afraid to wake me up in the mornings. She didn’t know if she opened the door whether I would be alive or not. Every time I cut, it got deeper and deeper.”
