Avril Lavigne Tears Up While Discussing Lyme Disease Battle

Avril Lavigne tearfully opened up about her battle with Lyme disease while making an appearance on Good Morning America on Monday (June 29) in a pre-taped interview.

“I’m about halfway through my treatment,” the 30-year-old singer said in the interview. “I’m doing a lot better. Seeing a lot of progress. … I’m just really grateful to know that, like, I will make [a] 100 percent recovery.”

Avril says that trying to get diagnosed was the worst time of her life.

“I literally became bedridden last October,” Avril said, adding that she saw many doctors who were not able to give her a diagnosis. “They would pull up their computer and be like, ‘Chronic fatigue syndrome.’ Or, ‘Why don’t you try to get out of bed, Avril, and just go play the piano?’ It’s like, ‘Are you depressed?’”

“There is hope. Lyme disease does exist. And you can get better,” Avril added. “I really just want to go out there and truly do what I love. So I’m so excited for life after this.”

Avril Lavigne on Her Lyme Disease Battle: 'I Thought I Was Dying'

Avril Lavigne opens up about her diagnosis and experience with Lyme Disease in the latest issue of People magazine, on newsstands April 3.

Here’s what the 30-year-old entertainer had to share with the mag:

On realizing she had it while in Vegas with friends: “I could barely eat, and when we went to the pool, I had to leave and go lie in bed. My friends asked, ‘What’s wrong?’ I didn’t know. I had no idea a bug bite could do this. I was bedridden for five months. I felt like I couldn’t breathe, I couldn’t talk and I couldn’t move. I thought I was dying.”

On her fans: “They were asking about me since I was MIA, so I mentioned to one fan directly that I wasn’t feeling good. 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.”

On her future and feeling “80 percent” better: “This was a wake-up call. I really just want to enjoy life from here on out.”
