Avril Lavigne Shares a Health Update and an Inspiring Message

Avril Lavigne took to social media this week to give her fans an update on her battle with Lyme disease. In the singer's Instagram snap, she's sitting on an exam table in the doctor's office, and she added an uplifting message: "This journey continues . . . Just reach up, don't give up until you've touched the sky . . . We were all meant to fly . . . #DrOfficePhotoShoot." In another photo, she showed that she'd done blood labs, saying, "On my way to good health #TakingCareOfMyself #F*ckLymeDisease." Later, those posts were followed by another picture of Avril sitting on the beach, staring out at the ocean, and "taking in the majesty of the moment."

The singer has been open about her struggles with Lyme disease, even getting emotional in a candid interview about her experience in June. Meanwhile, she also made headlines in early September when she and Chad Kroeger announced their separation after two years of marriage.
