Avril Lavigne has always been one of my favorite singers, she knows how to create good jams that you can’t help but put on repeat. Unfortunately, it was just in March where taking a break from the limelight was her only choice
PEOPLE recently did an interview with Avril and she opened up about her battle against Lyme Disease, stating:
“I never had depression, but being sick and being so terrified, that in itself is depressing,” she stated.”I was scared for my life. There were definitely times I couldn’t shower for a full week because I could barely stand. It felt like having all your life sucked out of you.”
Lavigne stayed as positive as she could throughout the whole ordeal, Lyme Disease isn’t widely talked about, but it’s a terrible disease to contract.
Lime Disease is contracted from being bit by a tick. It’s a bacterial infection that can cause severe symptoms ranging from moderate fatigue to muscle pain, debilitating dementia and depression. The Centers for Disease Control Prevention about 25,000 Americans were diagnosed in 2013. According to Dr. Erica Lehman, a tick-borne-disease specialist, “it’s one of the fastest growing epidemics in the world.”
Yikes, that sounds prettttty frightening. I’m sorry you had to go through that girl but you’re a fighter for sure. We’re so happy and proud that you kept staying positive and survived this terrible disease.
Even the fans were amazing to Avril Lavigne, stating:
“They were asking about me since I was MIA, so I mentioned to one fan directly that I wasn’t feeling good.” she continued “The get-well messages and videos they sent touched me so deeply. I lay in bed watching them and cried so much because I felt loved. It was so powerful and beautiful.”
Fans are the best aren’t they? After a lot of battling, we actually got to see Avril perform with Taylor Swift and she had an absolute blast, uploading a picture to Instagram and captioning it:
“Such a Pleasure to perform “Complicated” tonight with @taylorswifton her #1989 world tour! She ROCKS
