On “Dr. Phil” yesterday, Demi Lovato talked about having suicidal thoughts when she was seven.
She said, quote, “The very first time I was suicidal was when I was seven. I had this fascination with death.
“I have experienced things that I have not talked about, and I don’t know if I ever will talk about. But at seven, I knew that if I were to take my own life, that the pain would end.”
In addition to suicidal thoughts, Demi’s depression and bipolar disorder also led to drug and alcohol addiction and cutting.
She said, quote, “There was a while there when my mom was afraid to wake me up in the mornings because she didn’t know if she opened the door if I would be alive or not.”
