Bieber has been suffering from these health issues for a while now

On top of his ongoing struggle with depression and anxiety, Bieber reveals he’s now battling even more health issues.

On January 8, the singer took to Instagram to share that he’s been suffering from Lyme disease and chronic mono.

He also addressed the ongoing health misconceptions he’s constantly been faced with, as these illnesses have made him appear differently.

“While a lot of people kept saying Justin Bieber looks like s—, on meth etc. they failed to realize I’ve been recently diagnosed with Lyme disease, not only that but had a serious case of chronic mono which affected my, skin, brain function, energy, and overall health,” he captioned his Instagram post that featured screenshots of the TMZ article that first reported this news.

Bieber continued on by sharing he plans to discuss his most recent diagnosis in more detail in his upcoming YouTube docu-series, which premieres January 27.

“These things will be explained further in a docu-series I’m putting on YouTube shortly.. you can learn all that I’ve been battling and OVERCOMING!!,” he wrote. “It’s been a rough couple years but getting the right treatment that will help treat this so far incurable disease and I will be back and better than ever.”

While Lyme disease can be easily treated if caught early on, symptoms can develop into facial palsy, irregular heart beat, nerve pain and even inflammation of the brain and spinal cord if a person does not seek medial attention, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Friends, family, and friends continue to show their support

After sharing this heartbreaking news, many people took to the comments to offer the singer a few words of encouragement.

A handful of Bieber’s famous friends showed their support for him in the comments, including Patrick Schwarzenegger, Shania Twain, Ludacris, Chance The Rapper, and many more.

Avril Lavigne even took her support a step further by opening up about her own battle with Lyme disease.

“Today @JustinBieber shared that he has Lyme disease. There are too many people that have this debilitating disease! People I love and care about and many friends and fans I have crossed paths with,” she wrote. “To everyone affected by Lyme, I want to tell you that there is HOPE. Because Lyme is a daily struggle, for the better part of two years, I was really sick and fighting for my life.”

Today @JustinBieber shared that he has Lyme disease. There are too many people that have this debilitating disease! People I love and care about and many friends and fans I have crossed paths with. To everyone affected by Lyme, I want to tell you that there is HOPE. Because Lyme is a daily struggle, for the better part of two years, I was really sick and fighting for my life. Writing #HeadAboveWater helped me get through the worst of it, but the bad days still come and go. At the time, putting together my album saved my life. I needed to tell my story and to be able to share my experiences with others. Lyme disease is in all 50 states in the US and in EVERY country in the world, except Antarctica. It is a global pandemic but NOT a global priority. I never want others to suffer the way that I did, and because of that it is now my mission to raise awareness & funds that will help eradicate this life-altering disease. Portions of proceeds from every show on the rest of the #HeadAboveWater tour and merch sales will continue to go directly to Lyme disease. I will continue to fight and to support! @TheAvrilLavigneFoundation supports people with Lyme Disease, serious illness or disabilities. We raise awareness and aid PREVENTION of the Lyme epidemic. We impact the lives of individuals and families affected by Lyme Disease through TREATMENT grants administered by our charitable partners; and we’ve aligned with @globallymealliance to accelerate scientific research. Please, JOIN US as we endeavor to educate people, prevent the spread of Lyme and find a cure. Our initiatives enable us to provide HOPE and expand the number of lives we’re able to transform. TOGETHER we can do this. #FightLyme #LymeIsReal #TheAvrilLavigneFoundation
