You'd think, naturally, in the age of Internet trolls, that would set Lovato up for unwarranted cyberbullying, but the positive and supportive reactions to the doc have been what's stood out the most - including one from a celebrity longtime pal of Demis.

She admits to struggling after her breakup with Wilmer Valderrama, her boyfriend of almost six years.

On how deep her connection with Wilmer was: "We connected on a level that I have never connected with anybody before". "When I turned 18 we started dating".

"I don't want to give it the power that it controls my every thought, but it's something that I'm constantly thinking about", she says.

"I've never loved anybody like I loved Wilmer, and like, I still love Wilmer. He was just my rock, my everything". And just like us, fans are losing it over the latest interaction between the two. "I just wasn't ready and there was so much in my life that I hadn't explored yet". But, as impressive as her professional accomplishments are, the 25-year-old singer's proudest feat is likely the happy place she is right now with her life and her health. She explained to her manager, "When I feel lonely, my heart feels hungry and then I end up bingeing and I don't know how to figure out how to be alone". "I'm pretty sure that I'm not going to meet anybody that compares to him but I'm trying to keep an open heart and open mind when it comes to that". However, after the couple broke up in June 2016, the singer revealed that she "immediately" relapsed.

It's like Demi tweeted in 2009: "No matter what we go through, and no matter where we are, nothing and no one can change our friendship". I paid for all the alcohol, someone ended up getting weed, I was on Adderall and we had trashed the hotel. I think it was with Wilmer.

"Body image, what I'm going to eat next, what I wish I could be eating, what I wish I didn't eat", she said. Working out is a form of meditation for me because I'm not focused on anything in my head.
