    Pop punk princess Avril Lavigne has revealed that she is suffering from Lyme disease and it was so bad at one point that she thought she was dying! OMG! We are glad she knows what it is that ails her and has taken the steps to get better. That's something to celebrate and be happy about.

    The Canadian singer revealed to PEOPLE that she was bedridden for five months during her ordeal.

    Lavigne believes she contracted the disease when bitten by a tick last spring. She couldn't move, talk, eat, or do much in the way of fun activity, and even noted that she couldn't believe that a bite could have caused this much havoc in her life. Sigh.

    
Thankfully, her husband Chad Kroeger of Nickelback helped nurse her back to health.

    What a shame! Av is such a bright, lively and bold person, and one helluva musical talent. It's such a bumout for her to have been sidetracked like this. We are glad she is on the road to recovery. If you want to read more about her situation, then make sure you pick up the new ish of PEOPLE.

    We hope that the singer gets better soon!
