Avril Lavigne has released a new single inspired by her battle with Lyme borreliosis.

Good Morning America – September 20th, 2018

Avril Lavigne has released a new single: an emotionally raw piano ballad called “Head Above Water.”

The singer revealed she wrote the song during her scary battle with Lyme disease and said that the lyrics are basically a prayer to God asking for help as she tries to get through a difficult time in her life.

“God, keep my head above water/Don’t let me drown, it gets harder/I’ll meet you there at the altar/As I fall down to my knee, don’t let me drown,” Lavigne sings on the chorus.

    my dad had an episode a year and a half ago..three weeks after a tick bite ended up in a stroke unit for five weeks.
    Since he has fully recovered but no speech. was never tested for lyme.
    Medically wouldn’t believe that this was caused by tick.
    my mom would like to know what can be done further regarding his loss of speech
