"It's been a rough couple [of] years, but [I'm] getting the right treatment that will help treat this so far incurable disease and I will be back and better than ever NO CAP."

Following Justin's post, his wife Hailey took to Twitter, writing:

"For those who are trying to downplay the severity of Lyme disease. Please do your research and listen to the stories of people who have suffered with it for years. Making fun of and belittling a disease you don't understand is never the way, all it takes is educating yourself."

The model also thanked other celebrities who have spoken about Lyme disease in the public eye.
