Demi Lovato Reveals Battle With Bipolar DisorderDemi Lovato opened up on her battle with bulimia and self-mutilation, and revealed she was diagnosed with bipolar disorder during a three-month stay in rehab last year on 'Good Morning America' (weekdays, 7AM ET on ABC).

Lovato was teased for her weight as a child, and this bullying gave rise to her bulimia. "From when I was bullied until now, I've suffered an eating disorder from the things that were said to me," she said.

Lovato also struggled with depression that resulted in cutting. "I've suffered from cross-addictions over the past few years. I was trying to control my eating disorder, trying to get help for it," she said. "For me, it was okay to [cut] because I wasn't throwing up anymore."

It was only after rehab and being diagnosed with bipolar disorder that Lovato could explain her acute mood swings. "I was conquering the world, but then I would come crashing down," she said.
