Avril Lavigne details battle with Lyme disease


In a recent interview, Avril Lavigne has detailed her battle with Lyme disease and said “a lot of good” came out of her being sidelined.

“I haven’t stopped working since I was 15,” the singer told Billboard.

“Just to have this downtime, this time spent with my family, has been really good for me just to take a step back and look at my life, and really get to see who in my life is really there for me when I need them.”

Avril Lavigne was bedridden for five months and was scared for her life. All that time being sidelined gave her a lot of time to think.Avril Lavigne Lyme disease

“I’ve never been so clear before, or as close to my family,” she said.

“So there’s been a lot of good that has come out of it. And moving forward, I’m really clear on what I want in life.”

Avril Lavigne also said the disease has given her perspective and given her a sort of “just do it” attitude. She is now going to record a Christmas album, something she has always wanted to do. She is also going to address her disease head-on with a new song.

“I need to talk about Lyme disease, because it’s real, it’s out there, it was a simple bug bite and it could happen to anybody. People need to know about it, because it’s not talked about that much and a lot of the information that’s out there is inaccurate,” Avril Lavigne said.
