If you are trying to get a hold of Demi Lovato via phone and she’s not answering it’s not because she’s ignoring you, it’s because she doesn’t want to use it.
The X Factor judge has had quite the couple of years with her bipolar, self-harming and eating disorder and now that she claims to be better, she has found that giving up her cell phone has made her life much easier.
She tells America’s Self magazine, “I make time for myself and meditate. I’ve spent the past two years getting over an eating disorder and issues like self-harming and bipolar disorder. I have to work on this stuff every day. I’m reminded of that whenever I eat or feel down…I haven’t used my cell (phone) in three months! Subconsciously, it was a crutch. When a room gets quiet, what do you do? Grab your phone! Now I can sit and have conversations with people.”
She goes on to say that when times got tough, especially when it came to anxiety she’d cut herself. “There were times I felt so anxious, almost like I was crawling out of my skin – that if I didn’t do something physical to match the way I felt inside, I would explode. I cut myself to take my mind off that. I just didn’t care what happened. I had no fear,” she said.
I’m so happy to hear that Demi is feeling better. She’s such a talented, beautiful girl.
