Avril Lavigne updates fans on her health: 'The journey continues'

Avril Lavigne delivered an update on her health this week, telling fans that she is, "On my way to good health." The Canadian singer, who was diagnosed with Lyme's Disease earlier this year, shared pictures from her recent doctor's visit, proving that her battle with the debilitating disease continues. Still, the Napanee native is remaining strong and resilient through it all.

"This journey continues," she captioned an Instagram pic on Tuesday (Sept. 22). "Just reach up, don't give up until you've touch the sky ….. We were all meant to fly …." In another snapshot, Avril showed off her arm alongside a dozen vials of blood.

The health update came three weeks after she announced her split from her husband of two years Chad Kroeger.

"It is with heavy heart that Chad and I announce our separation today," she wrote in an Instagram post on September 2. "Through not only the marriage, but the music as well, we've created many unforgettable moments. We are still, and forever will be, the best of friends, and will always care deeply for each other. To all our family, friends and fans, thank you sincerely for the support."

Avril revealed in April that she had been diagnosed with Lyme disease after months of feeling lethargic and lightheaded.

"I felt like I couldn't breathe, I couldn't talk and I couldn't move," she told PEOPLE earlier this year. "I thought I was dying."

The singer was bedridden for five months but has slowly regained her strength, and had recovered enough from the tick-borne illness to join Taylor Swift on stage during a stop of the Grammy winner's 1989 tour in San Diego, California, at the end of August.

The singer also shared the news this month that she's been cast as Snow White in the upcoming animated film Charming, alongside Demi Lovato and Ashley Tisdale.
