It's been more than three weeks since LeAnn Rimes voluntarily entered a treatment facility for a 30-day stay to "emotionally check out" and take care of herself. But as the one-month stay draws to a close, more details are emerging about the reasons behind the singer's decision to seek treatment at the undisclosed facility.

"I'm happy and healthy," the 30-year-old told People magazine. "I just want to be happier and healthier more consistently. I don't want to wake up and not truly be enjoying my life and these amazing things around me."

The songstress burst onto the music scene as a precocious 13-year-old with her first single and debut album, both titled "Blue." A string of hits and several acting roles followed, with LeAnn spending much of her life in the public eye -- which she readily admits has taken its toll.

"Sometimes when I look in the mirror, I see a child, then I look and see a woman who should be turning 60," she reveals. "I've always taken care of anyone else, and I think I've buried some issues for a long time."

The wife of actor Eddie Cibrian entered the center one day before she filed a lawsuit against two women she accused of illegally taping a phone conversation they shared and posting portions of it online. The lawsuit, which, if victorious, LeAnn hopes will benefit anti-bullying measures, is still pending.

The country music superstar has maintained her touring schedule while at the residential facility, and is preparing to release her upcoming album, Spitfire, early next year. See a list of her upcoming concerts here.
