Legendary Rocker, Ozzy Osbourne, said he is "unbelievable pain" due to multiple medical issues, including his difficult battle with Parkinson's Disease. Following his recent public announcement to cancel dates on his 2020 tour, Osbourne spoke with The Sun in an interview about how he's been coping with his health issues.

The singer planned to tour after the release of his new album, Ordinary Man, but his health issues have forced him to cancel shows. And fans are rooting for the living legend to regain strength.

"I'm in unbelievable pain 24/7," Osboune told The Sun Wednesday. "I remember it like it was yesterday. I was lying there as clearly and as calmly as anything, thinking, 'Well Ozzy, you've f***in done it now.' I have to take all these painkillers but I'm dying for all the opiate stuff I can't have."

Osbourne revealed that he hasn’t been doing any funny business regarding his intake on drugs. He mentioned that his personal nurse keeps medications with him at all times so he has only been taking what has been prescribed by his doctor.

The singer was open about how difficult it has been. "I have to be helped to change, to have a bath," Osbourne admitted. "It's just f***ing awkward, you know?"

Osbourne's recent health issues date back to early last year, when he took an unfortunate fall in the middle of the night. He obtained a neck injury he sustained after a 2003 bike accident. In 2003, Osbourne was also diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease, but he did not go public with his conditions until January of this year.

Osbourne hasn’t been out much or at all due to his health conditions. He told The Sun about how he never leaves his home due to his current health status. ”If I had a choice between the Parkinson's and the f***ed neck, I'd go for the Parkinson's. I've been laid up for a year now. First I had an infection in my hand. That pulled me off the road. Then I got pneumonia, then I had the fall, then I had surgery and here I am today. It's driving me nuts,” he confessed.

He continued, “I had to pull out because I might only be able to do a couple of shows. I'll go out there when I'm ready and I'm not ready yet," Osbourne told The Sun. "The recovery has been so goddam slow. I've never been this laid up in my life and, believe me, I've done some stupid things. I've recovered from alcoholism, drug addiction, all of the above. Then I tripped over, and that's it."

The legend also thanks his wife Sharon Osbourne which whom he’s been married to since 1982. "Poor old Sharon's been a mum, a dad, everything. She works non-stop," he said. "But our relationship is better than ever. I'm so much in love with her and she's so much in love with me. She's been fantastic and she's looking really good."

In spite his unfortunate health issues, Osbourne gathered enough strength to record his new album, Ordinary Man, which was released on Friday. The record includes features from Elton John, Post Malone, Charlie Puth, Tom Morello, Slash, and more.

"The album got me out of bed. Some days I'd do an hour or two, other days four or five," Osbourne expressed. "It was the best medicine I could have because it stopped me thinking about how I might end up a cripple."

Fans of Osbourne are continuing to send him messages of encouragement and hope for a speedy recovery.
