Avril Lavigne is staying strong through her tough times.
On Tuesday, the singer added a new photo on Instagram where she gave an update on her struggle with Lyme disease. As she lies down and appears to be getting blood tested, she mentioned that she's "overcoming" the sickness and her doctor is telling her she's making progress.

It was announced earlier this year that the pop-rock icon had been diagnosed with the sickness. While that was hard enough, it was announced just a few months ago that she and her husband, Chad Kroeger, were separating after two years of marriage.
As hard as all of this is, it seems that Lavigne is doing what she can to keep her head up and move forward. Based on some other Instagram photos, it appears that she has good people in her life to be there for the difficult moments.
