Lyme disease is a bacterial infection caused by the bite of a tick carrying the ‘borrelia bacteria’, as per the Mayo Clinic. These ticks are typically found in grassy or wooded areas and their bites are like mosquito bites which form tiny, itchy bumps on the skin. It is the most common tick-borne illness in the United States, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

In July, she announced that she is taking time off due to a flare-up in her condition, which had forced her to get daily treatment for the last four months. In her post, she explained that her condition has only gotten worse with time and the symptoms have taken a toll “in ways” she can’t “really explain.”

Despite the pain and exhaustion that the illness has caused, Bella in her recent post mentioned that she “wouldn’t change anything for the world”, in her post. She noted that her experience has ultimately made her who she is to this day. “I’ll be back when I’m ready, I miss you all so much, I love you all so much,” she said while concluding her post.
