Demi Lovato Reflects On the Two Year Anniversary of Her Overdose

Demi Lovato

You may remember back in 2018, Demi Lovato relapsed and overdosed.

She was found unconscious in her home and Narcan had to be administered. Now, two years later, Demi is reflecting on that frightening day, and how much has changed since then.

The singer took to Instagram to say, “Today is my miracle day. I'm so blessed to have one. It represents how the Dr's at Cedar's Sinai saved my life. How my life has become something beyond my wildest dreams. Only two years after that terrible day, I'm engaged to the love of my life and I can genuinely say I feel free of my demons. Each and every one. I never thought this feeling was possible. And it’s not just because I fell in love (although that didn’t hurt), but because over the past two years, I’ve done more work on myself than I have in my entire life. Things that used to keep me down for weeks or even months, pass like tropical storms because my relationship with God has provided me infinite security. Long before I had an engagement ring on my finger, I had the word 'me' to remind myself that no matter what, I vow to love myself. You can't fully love another without loving yourself first."

Demi Lovato’s Recovery

It’s great to see how well Demi is doing and that she not only learned to love herself but that she found love with someone else, too! The memories of her engagement to Max Ehrich will now overshadow that unpleasant memory. Finding love after addiction can be a beautiful thing, but in order to do so, you have to make sure that you are in a healthy place first.
