The endearing messages continued pouring in, with actress Jameela Jamil adding, "Man, Demi Lovato is so strong that it's obscene. To withstand all of this and then to be giving enough to talk about it publicly… is 🤯❤️."

On Wednesday, Lovato told PEOPLE during the Television Critics Association panel for the docuseries that she was owning her experience and "wouldn't change a thing."

"Everything had to happen in order for me to learn the lessons that I learned," she said at the time. "It was a painful journey, and I look back and sometimes I get sad when I think of the pain that I had to endure to overcome what I have, but I don't regret anything."
