I have fought depression for many years, I always thought of my depression as a dark person I had to battle. When this song came out I could relate it to my depression, now I also use it as motivation to battle my diabetes.
I have found so much support and info from everyone here at DC that I wanted to share the lyrics with y'all.

"Woke up late today, and I still feel the sting of the pain.
But I brushed my teeth anyway, got dressed through the mess and put a smile on my face.
I got a little bit stronger.

Riding in the car to work, and I'm trying to ignore the hurt.
So I turned on the radio, Stupid song made me think of you,
I listened to it for minute, but then I changed it.
I'm getting a little bit stronger, just a little bit stronger.

And I'm done hoping that we can work it out,
I'm done with how it feels, spinning my wheels
Letting you drag my heart around.
And ohhh
I'm done thinking, that you could ever change.
I know my heart will never be the same,
but I'm telling myself I'll be okay.
Even on my weakest days, I get a little bit stronger.

Doesn't happen over night, but you turn around and a months gone by,
And you realize you haven't cried.
I'm not giving you a hour or a second or another minute longer.
I'm busy getting stronger.

And I'm done hoping that we can work it out,
I'm done with how it feels, spinning my wheels
Letting you drag my heart around.
And ohhh
I'm done thinking, that you could ever change.
I know my heart will never be the same,
but I'm telling myself I'll be okay.
Even on my weakest days, I get a little bit stronger.
I get a little bit stronger.

Getting along without you baby,
I'm better off without you baby,
How does it feel with out me baby?
I'm getting stronger without you baby.

And I'm done hoping that we can work it out,
I'm done with how it feels, spinning my wheels
Letting you drag my heart around.
And ohhh
I'm done thinking, that you could ever change.
I know my heart will never be the same,
but I'm telling myself I'll be okay,
Even on my weakest days, I get a little bit stronger.
I get a little bit stronger.

I'm just a little bit stronger.
A little bit, a little bit, a little bit stronger.
I get a little bit stronger."

Thanks for the song I will give it a try. I need to make my self a lot more stronger. To depend on me more to get things done. But I am having spasms in my Brain and scar tissue from the strokes. Please pray for me. some people do not understand what we can go thru. God is the one I lean on for help. I tell him I did not ask for this and to take it away. I need the joy back in my life.

I want to help other 's with the same problem. Life can deal us a bad omen but God is the one who can fix us. and I pray that this too will go away. We have to find a cure for diabetics. I am 65 yrs old.
I can still walk and talk sometimes. When I can't I just go lay down and relax. I am sharing this because I have never been sick in my life and this has been really hard to go thru.

Diabetes is an awful disease, but I don't need to tell anyone here that, we all live with it every day.
My Aunt that also suffered with Diabetes made my Dad, who also was a victim of Diabetes, a needlepoint of The Serenity Prayer, that now hangs in my dining room and I read it several times a day.
I hadn't been to a doctor in over 10 years and only took an occasional aspirin, since diagnosed I have been to 3 doctors several times and now take 12 different pills a day.
I have lowered my A1C by 6.7 points in 6 months, my triglycerides by 503 points. My blood pressure is also now under control.
When my endo wrote "Type 2, stable and controlled" on my chart last week, you would have thought I had just won a jackpot. ;-)
It was tough but the alternative is unacceptable.

Know that you have found a wonderful source of information and tremendous support here at this site.
Also know you are in my thoughts and prayers.
If you need to talk or just vent, send me a message here at the site.

I can very much relate to what you are saying…until now I have never had anything seriously wrong. Tonsils out 55 years ago and in the hospital to have my two kids - nothing else! This is hard and I spent a long time being miserable and crying all the time…somehow I came back, with a lot of help and support, and have found joy in my life again, perhaps more so that I had before this all started. I pray that you will also find that joy and gratitude that simple things can bring. Take care!
