And there’s more ‘Sonny With A Chance’ on the way! Demi says she’s ‘excited to get back to work.’

“The journey that I’ve been on has been very, very difficult,” Demi Lovato tells her fans in her first post-rehab message on Cambio on March 7. “Over the past few months, I was dealing with issues that I know [girls] of all ages are dealing with. I hope to one day raise awareness of everything so I can help people too, just like you guys help me.”

She goes on to thank her fans for their constant support:

“I can’t tell you how much light you guys brought into my life in probably the darkest time of my life,” she says. “Without you guys, I wouldn’t be here today.”

And finally, she promises fans that she’s “excited” to get back to work.

“I can’t wait to tell you guys what the future holds,” she says. “I want to see you guys in person and tell you individually that I love you all, and I couldn’t have done this without you.”
