Rocker Avril Lavigne has revealed that she was bedridden for five months due to Lyme disease and felt she was dying. Lavigne said she spent five months in bed after being diagnosed late last year with Lyme disease, which is generally spread by bites from ticks. Lavigne said she was "80 percent" better and had been receiving care from her mother in Ontario as well as the singer's husband Chad Kroeger, frontman for the band Nickelback. An estimated 300,000 people each year are diagnosed with Lyme disease in the United States, overwhelmingly in the Northeast or Upper Midwest, according to the Centers for Disease Control, with smaller numbers in Europe.
