The
31-year-old singer first opened up about her health issues in April, telling
People she was “bedridden for five months” during the most difficult
phase of her struggle.

“I felt like I
couldn’t breathe, I couldn’t talk and I couldn’t move,” she added.

Since going public with
her condition, Avril has become an activist for fellow Lyme Disease sufferers.

In September, she announced
an initiative with her Avril Lavigne Foundation to raise money for awareness
and treatment of the sickness.
