Why Has Avril Lavigne Been Bedridden For Five Months?

We hadn’t heard much from the punk pop singer who inspired you to wear neck ties and long over sk8r bois, and now we know why. Avril Lavigne was diagnosed with Lyme disease this past fall and has been on the road to recovery ever since.
Avril told People magazine that she first started feeling symptoms while she was vacationing in Las Vegas to celebrate her 30th birthday. “I could barely eat, and when we went to the pool, I had to leave and go lie in bed,” she said. “My friends asked, ‘What’s wrong?’ I didn’t know.”
From one little bug bite that probably occurred sometime in spring 2014, Avril spents five months beridden at her home in Ontario. Her mom and husband, Nickelback’s Chad Kroeger, helped take care of her, but it wasn’t easy. She told People, “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.”
Fans were there to pick her up via videos and messages on social media, and now Avril is feeling much better. She’s probably the only person we know who has watched everything on Netflix. Do what you have to do to get better, girl!
