Demi Lovato Thanks Fans In Heartfelt New Year's Eve Message
In 2019, Demi Lovato plans on embracing every single day, whether it's good or bad. In a stark black-and-white note posted to social media, Lovato told her fans that she's grateful for all the lessons learned in 2018 and appreciates all of their support through her journey, People reports. The note was posted on New Year's Eve, five months after her overdose and subsequent hospitalization.
"So grateful for the lessons I’ve learned this year," she said via an Instagram Story post. "I will never take another day in life for granted, even the bad ones. Thankful for my fans, friends, family and everyone who supported me through this year. God bless."
Lovato was hospitalized in Los Angeles back in July. She remained hospitalized for 12 days before being released. She continued with in-patient treatment, though details of her progress have been scant. She gave fans an update on August 5, but the post has been deleted. Her most recent note shares many of the same sentiments as that update, though her fans are sure to appreciate any news from the singer and actor.
"I have always been transparent about my journey with addiction. What I've learned is that this illness is not something that disappears or fades with time. It is something I must continue to overcome and have not done yet," Lovato wrote. "I want to thank God for keeping me alive and well."
She assured fans that she would "keep fighting" after her overdose and today's note is evidence of that. People adds that a source close to Lovato says that she's attending meetings and continues treatment, with her health being her top priority.
Earlier this month, Lovato took the time to let her followers know that reports of her relapsing and struggling with her sobriety were exaggerated. "All my fans need to know is I’m working hard on myself, I’m happy and clean and I’m SO grateful for their support," she said on Twitter.
