Will Avril Lavigne's Lyme Disease affect her marriage with Chad Kroeger?
Avril Lavigne breaks her silence and reveals her health condition. Husband Chad Kroeger of Nickelback cancels two shows to give his full support for her recovery.
Finally, Avril Lavigne broke the real deal behind her month-long absence! When pop-rock singer Avril Lavigne went missing in action for several months from the music scene, plenty of speculations emerged. Rumors about pregnancy, divorce and rehab has been spreading around until last December, a Twitter post saying that the singer was having health issues went viral.
Now the speculations and rumors have been stopped when Avril Lavigne finally revealed to a certain magazine interview what the real reason was. Lavigne confessed that she was bedridden for five months due to Lyme disease. The singer believed she contracted the disease from a tick bite last spring. The 30-year old performer shared her traumatic experience in the said interview.
Lyme disease is actually more common than we thought. It is a bacterial illness carried and transmitted to humans by blacklegged ticks. Interesting enough, Avril Lavigne's family has been with her every step of the way. Take the case of his husband Chad Kroeger who did not just cancel one show but two, to give way to what he call as a "family emergency". He cancelled his show last March 5th in Omaha, Nebraska and his show on the 6th at Minneapolis, Minnesota. Lavigne's husband posted on his Facebook account: "Thank you for all your well wishes. We're anxious to get back on the road and will see you all in Winnipeg on Sunday!"
Avril Lavigne said that her Lyme disease somehow left her feeling as if she is going to die anytime soon. She admitted that during such time, she couldn't breathe, talk, or even walk. Indeed, Lyme disease is a serious health condition that requires immediate treatment with antibiotics. But now that Lavigne is all well and kicking, she is back to promote her latest release. She further thanked her husband and mother for taking extra good care of her as she tries to recover from the disease.
