Demi Lovato had more to deal with than her eating disorder and self-harming when she entered a treatment facility late last year. The "Skyscraper" singer recently revealed that she actually suffered a near-panic attack when she first registered for treatment.

"I have social anxiety issues when it comes to girls my age because I dealt with bullying, so when I stepped into a treatment centre, where I was having to live with 25 strangers... I was like,'Oh my gosh!' I almost had a full-blown panic attack."

Adding, "I was dealing with a lot.... and the problem with certain issues that I was dealing with is that if you don't get help soon enough, you do reach a point where you have to go to treatment.

The breaking point for me... I was tired and I w as out of the country... and things had just built up to a point and I was just not healthy and when you're putting on concerts when you're not eating that'll take a toll on you, and it did, and I snapped and I regret it to this day. I made a really decision that I ever made and it saved my life."
