A four-part Youtube documentary will cover the near-fatal overdose of Demi Lovato which transpired in 2018.
Lovato revealed that she still deals with the aftermath of the traumatic medical emergency. She stated the following:
“My doctors said that I had five or ten more minutes.”
Lovato would also elaborate on the repercussions of the overdose:
"I was left with brain damage, and I still deal with the effects of that today. I don't drive a car because there are blind spots in my vision. I also for a long time had a really hard time reading," she said. "I feel like they kind of are still there to remind me of what could happen if I ever get into a dark place again."
"I'm grateful for those reminders, but also I'm so grateful that I was someone who didn't have to do a lot of rehabbing. The rehabbing came on the emotional side and the therapeutic side, internally. I did a lot of work after that — just not physically."
Lovato would continue:
"I've had a lot of lives, like my cat, you know. I'm on my ninth life," she said. "I'm ready to get back to doing what I love, which is making music. I'm not living my life for other people or their headlines or their Twitter comments."
YouTube would say that the documentary is: "an intimate portrait of addiction" and "the process of healing and empowerment."
The documentary will feature interviews with not only Lovato and her family but friends such as Elton John and Christina Aguilera.
The overdose happened on July 24th2018. Officers responded to a call about a medical emergency, in which they revived Lovato with Narcan. Lovato would spend two-weeks at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center before being moved to a rehab center.
Lovato had recently revealed in the song “Sober” that she had relapsed after maintaining sobriety for six years.
The documentary will air on March 23rd on YouTube
