Lea Michele to 'Glee' family: 'I could not have gotten through this year without you'

'Glee' actress Lea Michele has posted a series of messages to her official Twitter page this afternoon (May 2) thanking her co-stars and crew alike for getting her through the past year as season 5 of the popular U.S. musical drama wraps. 

Writing on the social networking site, the beauty explained that following the death of 'Glee' cast member and boyfriend Cory Monteith, she's had a hard time and wants to thank everyone involved in the programme for being so supportive: 

"Last day of #Glee season 5.. I can't believe how fast this season went by.. I could not have gotten through this year... without all of you & you're endless love & support. I'm so grateful for my cast. They are my family & have held me up through everything..."

She added: "A big thank you to @alxanders & @AdamAnders for making us always sound amazing! Love you guys! Can't wait for next season! And of course @MrRPMurphy & @BFalchuk thank you for bringing this amazing show into our lives, & for creating such a beautiful season."

Michele, meanwhile, is gearing up to release her first book, which is entitled 'Brunette Ambition', later this month on May 13 and in it she opens up about her love of fashion, past problems with skin conditions, and gives style advice.
