Amanda Palmer announced she's been forced to pull out of a series of live dates supporting Morrissey due to Lyme disease.

In a blog post, she explained she was "pretty f---ing sad" to have to miss the tour dates.

"I was really, really, really, really looking forward to opening for morrissey," she wrote, in part. "The gig of a lifetime, basically, and if you know me, you know why. I got out of the hospital on tuesday, i crossed my fingers, stayed in bed, drank all the fluids, took all the tylenol, wished all the wishes, and hoped that i would recover quickly... no such luck."

Sharing that Morrissey had wished her well, Palmer also had a silly (OR VERY REAL) idea to make things better.
