She's back in the spotlight, but Avril Lavigne is still dealing with a whole host of health issues behind the scenes.
Having been diagnosed with Lyme Disease over a year ago, the singer still has to have regular health screenings at the doctor's… and a LOT of blood tests too, it would seem.
In a very personal insight into her ongoing illness yesterday, Avril shared a picture of a number of blood vials next to her bandaged arm, captioning it, "On my way to good health #TakingCareOfMyself #FuckLymeDisease."
In another post, showing her sitting on a hospital bed, the singer wrote, "This journey continues ….. Just reach up, don't give up until you've touch the sky ….. We were all meant to fly."
Avril's "journey" isn't just health-related, though.
Last month the Girlfriend hitmaker confirmed she had split from her husband of two years, Chad Kroeger, with many reports suggesting the pair had parted ways long before the official announcement.
The news came just days after Chad was reportedly spotted in a Miami nightclub dancing flirtatiously with another woman.
In fact, rumours of a split began as far back as last September, when it was widely reported that things were rocky for the pair.
"It’s over,” a source claimed to Us Weekly at the time. “He has been going around L.A. telling people that they are divorcing.”
However in her official statement last month, Avril said the pair remained the "best of friends."
