Avril Lavigne Talks Managing Lyme Disease: ‘I’ve Gone Through So Much’ but ‘I’m in a Good Place’

Happy and healthy after a devastating battle with Lyme disease, the pop star, 34, reveals how the medical crisis changed her life in the new issue of PEOPLE.

“I’ve gone through so much,” says Lavigne, whose struggles inform her new album Head Above Water (out Feb. 15).

“It gave me a purpose,” she adds of her journey, “and made me find myself all over again.”
