Months after leaving a treatment center for "physical and emotional issues," Demi Lovato reveals that she learned she suffers from bipolar disorder.

"I never found out until I went into treatment that I was bipolar," the 18-year-old actress and singer told People. "Looking back it makes sense. There were times when I was so manic, I was writing seven songs in one night and I'd be up until 5:30 in the morning."
