Having gone through a serious health scare, Avril Lavigne will be releasing a new singe “Fly” in April to show support for the 2015 Special Olympics.
The 30-year-old singer went to Las Vegas with her friends last October but couldn’t live it up, unaware a diagnosis was awaiting her.
“I could barely eat, and when we went to the pool, I had to leave and go lie in bed,” Avril said of her trip. “My friends asked, ‘What’s wrong?’ I didn’t know.”
Following her Las Vegas trip, the doctors finally figured out what was wrong with the punk princess. She had Lyme disease.
Avril believes she got Lyme disease after getting bitten by a tick last spring. “I had no idea a bug bite could do this. I was bedridden for five months.”
The Canadian singer shared some details about her condition. “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. ”
“I felt like I couldn’t breathe, I couldn’t talk and I couldn’t move,” she says. “I thought I was dying.”
Luckily, Avril is recuperating successfully and working on new music. Hopefully she feels 100% soon.
