According to a press release for the series, it will give "an honest look back at some of the most trying times in Lovato's life as she unearths her prior traumas and discovers the importance of her physical, emotional, and mental health," reports People.

In the trailer for the four-part YouTube original series, the 28-year-old reveals she had three strokes and a heart attack.

"My doctors said that I have five to ten more minutes."


Demi is still dealing with the aftermath. During a press call, which is part of the Television Critics Association press tour, she revealed that she has brain damage, doesn't drive because there are blind spots in her vision and that she couldn't read for a long time, reports CNN.

"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."

She added: "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."
