Demi Lovato covers ‘Self’ explains why she used to cut herself

Former Disney star, Demi Lovato, has regained control of her life.

Lovato, who was forced into rehab two years ago, is now back on top with new music and a new spot on Simon Cowell’s X Factor. “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,” Lovato, 19, says in the new issue of Self Magazine. “I cut myself to take my mind off that. I just didn’t care what happened. I had no fear.”

Demi went onto say that she is growing everyday. “I make time for myself and meditate,” she says. “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.”
