When Avril Lavigne feared she would die

Singer Avril Lavigne says she thought she was ‘dying’ when she couldn’t talk or move due to suffering from Lyme Disease, a bacterial infection spread by ticks.

She feared her life was coming to an end when she caught the infectious disease in October, resulting in her becoming bedridden for five months, reports “I felt like I couldn’t breathe, I couldn’t talk and I couldn’t move. I thought I was dying. I had no idea a bug bite could do this. I was bedridden for five months,” she said. 

She didn’t shower for weeks because she couldn’t stand up and her mother had to move into her home in Canada to look after her. Lavigne’s husband, Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger, also used to pay her regular visits during breaks from the band’s tour.

“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,” she said.
