The setting of which Demi Lovato grew up in was one of loving family members, but also one of hateful peers that didn’t respect her for who she was. When, the harsh words Lovato received overthrew the love that was there, she became swept up in the whirlwind.

She even talks about another doctor, but worse. This alludes the reader to remember the conditions of how mentally ill humans were treated and how most people would have to resort to mental institutions.
