Avril Lavigne is in high spirits as she continues her battle with Lyme disease.
The 30-year-old singer shared an Instagram photo from a doctor’s office visit on Tuesday, writing, "This journey continues ..... Just reach up, don't give up until you've touch the sky ..... We were all meant to fly."
The singer told Good Morning America in July that she was about halfway through her treatment for the disease and is expected to make a full recovery. She said messages from fans helped her through the toughest times after her diagnosis.
"I sat there in my bed and watched [fan videos showing their support for her] and I cried through the whole thing and honestly I felt very loved," she said with a smile. "It sounds silly, but I really did feel my fans through the process."
The entire experience, Lavigne explained, also gave her a new outlook on her future.
"I think for me it's a second shot at life," she says. "I want to go out there and truly do what I love, so I'm so excited for life after this."
