    I had this vision a year ago, when I was still sick with Lyme.  It became reality this weekend as the Arklatex Lyme Disease support group had an awesome float in the parade!!  Wow, I'm so excited. It was awesome!!!




    I just had to share my joy.

      Thank you so much...I know it seems silly to be so hyper over this but if you've ever been sick with Lyme & fought the battle we have, everyone would be jumping up and down like me.   Victory over tick-borne diseases!!

    Having read your story of your battle with Lyme disease some months ago, I was petrified when I found two ticks on me a couple of days after geocaching on a common south of London with my daughter. We'd worn shorts because it was so hot.

    That was back in July so I'm hoping all is clear. I think UK ticks are less risky. However, it was still gross to realise those black specks in my thigh were not just particles of dirt but beasties with legs!

      All ticks are risky to carry Lyme and co-infections. It is widespread in the UK as well. They will tell you it is not there, but that is untrue. People are misdiagnosed daily all over the world.  Hope you will be okay, but if you should experience fatigue or other symptoms, research or email me!  Thanks for reading my articles!
