After months of speculation about his well-being, Justin Bieber finally reveals the reason why he has withdrawn from the stage: the singer has been quietly suffering from Lyme disease.
“While people used to say Justin Bieber is made a shit…, he uses methamphetamines, etc., they failed to realize that I was recently diagnosed with Lyme disease, not only that, but I had a serious case of chronic mono [nucleosis] what which affected my skin, brain function, energy and in general my health, "explained the singer on his Instagram account about his condition.
Bieber assured that he will expand on the subject in his next documentary that will be available on YouTube and that marks his return to the stage with a world tour.
"These things will be explained in a documentary series that I will be putting on YouTube very soon … you can know everything I've been going through and getting over! It's been a rough few years, but getting the right treatment will help treat this incurable disease so far and I'll be back better than ever,”he said.
The singer has received the support of his colleagues, including Thalía, who upon learning of the news sent a message of support to the young performer, since she has also suffered from this disease for years.
"Living with Lyme is surviving every minute. Together we help each other”, wrote the Mexican singer on her social networks. "I share your pain @justinbieber The community with Lyme is here to support you."
Among the tips that the interpreter gave Bieber was not to forget to take care of his body with exercise and eat a good diet.
“We have to take care of ourselves and exercise and eat well and feed ourselves, and constantly check ourselves. Those Lyme disease warriors are not alone, we all have each other and we all support each other,”he said.
According to the United States National Library of Medicine, Lyme disease is contracted through a bite from an affected tick and creates a bacterial infection, the first symptom of which is usually a rash. The rest of the symptoms resemble a simple flu, including muscle and joint pain. The faster you are diagnosed, the greater the chances of a recovery.
