"I was left with brain damage, and I still deal with the effects of that today. I don't drive a car, because I had blind spots on my vision, Lovato told reporters during a panel. "And I also for a long time had a really hard time reading. It was a big deal when I was able to read out of a book, which was like two months later because my vision was so blurry."

The after

"Everything had to happen in order for me to learn the lessons that I learned," Lovato told PEOPLE. "It was a painful journey, and I look back and sometimes I get sad when I think of the pain I had to endure to overcome what I have, but I don't regret anything." "I'm so proud of the person I am today," she added.
