Special moment: “I felt so grateful so I wrote something,” she wrote, adding, “Took this after telling me to close my eyes to how to propose myself. I love you darling’
“Today is my miracle day,” she began in her note.
“I’m so lucky to have one. This represents how the doctors at Cedar’s Sinai saved my life. How my life has become something that is beyond my wildest dreams, ”she wrote.
“Only 2 years after that terrible day, I am engaged to the love of my life, and I can truly say that I feel free from my demons. Each. I never thought this feeling was possible. And it’s not just because I fell in love (although it didn’t hurt), but because over the past 2 years I’ve done more work on myself than in any my life, ”she continued.
“The things that held me back for weeks or even months go by like tropical storms because my relationship with God has provided me with infinite security.
Retrospective: “Today is my miracle day,” she began, noting that it was the second anniversary of her emergency transport to hospital after an overdose.
Getting the job done: Demi wrote that she was ‘free from my demons’ after ‘doing more work on myself than me in my entire life’, although her romantic relationship didn’t hurt
She couldn’t do it on her own: she admitted learning to love herself with her recovery and ended up thanking God, her loved ones, and her fans for their support.
“Long before I had an engagement ring on my ring finger, I had the word ‘me’ to remind me that no matter what, I swear to love myself. You cannot completely love another without loving yourself first, ”she wrote.
“Thank you God for this peace and understanding, but above all for giving me the strength to fight in my darkest times. Thank you to my family, friends and fans for always supporting me and respecting my privacy regarding this trip. I love you all, ”she concluded.
On July 24, Demi was rushed to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles after suffering an opioid overdose believed to have been caused by oxycodone containing fentanyl.
She was resuscitated via naloxone and spent several weeks in the hospital before being transferred to an inpatient rehabilitation center.
She later revealed that her management team’s insistence on her weight loss, combined with a relapse of bulimia, contributed to the overdose.
Demi’s fiance, Max Ehrich, was a source of support in comments on her intimate post.
“I couldn’t not film this moment. You are the most resilient, strongest, most compassionate, and beautiful angel. I cannot imagine my world without you and I am grateful beyond words that God has kept you here. I love you so much and I can’t wait for our future ❤️ ”he wrote.
Demi was elated when she announced her engagement to the actor, who is best known for appearing in The Young And The Restless and recurring roles in Under The Dome and The Path.
She shared gorgeous photos of the two kissing on a beach, as well as a close-up of her massive diamond engagement ring.
