Demi Lovato Says She’s Bi-Polar, Opens Up About Her Eating Disorder Past.

Demi Lovato, fresh out of a treatment center where she had therapy for anorexia, bulimia and cutting is opening up to PEOPLE about her bi-polar disorder and years fighting an eating disorder.

“I never found out until I went into treatment that I was bipolar… Looking back it makes sense… There were times when I was so manic, I was writing seven songs in one night and I’d be up until 5:30 in the morning.”

The 18 year old actress and singer, who battled depression for years, now says she feels like she is in control now.

Things were far from the case during her early teens. She also recently told the magazine that at 15: “I was only eating two meals a week, but I wasn’t losing any more weight because my body adjusted to that. So I tried new things: laxatives, fasts – nothing was working.”‘ After that, she began throwing up – up to five times a day - eventually coughing up blood.

Now out of treatment and beginning her life again she says: ‘It is more difficult now because I don’t have people supervising me. That’s why I haven’t been working.’
