Ending on a positive note. Demi Lovato reflected on her 2018 overdose and more in a heartfelt post via social media on Dec. 31. The singer thanked her fans and friends for their continued support, and revealed how incredibly grateful she feels to be alive and well going into 2019.
“So grateful for the lessons I’ve learned this year,” Demi began her message on Instagram Stories. “I will never take another day in life for granted, even the bad ones. Thankful for my fans, friends, family and everyone who supported me throughout this year. God bless.” The songstress, 26, was hospitalized for a near-fatal overdose that took place at her Hollywood Hills home back in July, but after completing her rehabilitation stint in November, she’s made a complete turnaround.
In a recent Twitter post, Demi opened up about how she’s feeling amid her recovery process. “I’m so blessed I get to take this time to be with family, relax, work on my mind, body, and soul and come back when I’m ready,” she wrote. “I have my fans to thank for that.”
Demi’s mother Dianna de la Garza also broke her silence about the singer’s health during a candid interview. “I didn’t know what she was doing…because she doesn’t live with me. She’s 26,” she said about Demi on Maria Menounos’ podcast in October. “I couldn’t be more thankful or more proud of her because addiction [is] a disease — it’s work. It’s not easy. There are no shortcuts.”
Luckily, Demi was able to enjoy the holidays with her loved ones. The star took to social media with adorable photos of her family celebrating Christmas together, showing off her brightly lit tree with sentimental ornaments. Fans were overjoyed to see Demi in great spirits while opening gifts with her brood and pups, and we hope things only gets better as the new year rolls around.
