    They have also publicly shared they had been diagnosed with bipolar disorder. “For years, people said I was depressed, and I actually didn’t know myself why I was so upset and why I would have these episodes of mania—what I now know is mania,” Demi told Women's Health. “Sometimes I felt invincible, and it was these moments when my mind would go all over the place.”

    Prior to their diagnosis, the uncertainty led to Demi self-medicating. "When you don’t know what’s happening, why you’re feeling certain ways, and you don’t have the answers yet, people tend to self-medicate, which is exactly what I did," shared Demi.
