I refuse to give up. I refuse to lie down and die and slip away into the quiet night. Hear me loudly roar into the daylight, Diabetes. I refuse to be bullied into submission by Diabetes, therefore, I'm bringing the fight to it, hard!!! My health is a gift from God, and I will not let you take it from me. There may be times when I get beat down, but I will not stay down. I will get up because beating within me is a heart who wants to win, a heart who wants to live. I will breathe in the fresh air and remember all of the wonderful things I'm fighting for. Giving up is not an option!!!
