Debbie shared the photo alongside a lengthy and emotional message

The star - who has lived with Lyme disease since 2013 which has caused chronic pain, fatigue and stress - continued: "Looking up to the skies with stars showering down on me and bathed in a light that would help me project to all of you strength and joy and music and empowerment and the knowledge that the visions you hold for yourself and the voices in your own head are far more powerful than anything external threatening to take you down.
