On June 19th, at around 7:30 in the evening, I took my medication for the last time. I crushed the pill as I usually did, but instead of putting it inside of my yogurt, I put it inside of my soy milk. After that, I was able to say that I was finally finished taking my medication. Since then, I’ve done everything I could to stop myself from getting tick bites again. I wear long pants and sometimes a long-sleeved shirt whenever I go outdoors … and I’m trying to stay out of the grass as much as possible because there may be ticks in there.
While I was taking the medication, I was able to tuck my pants into my socks and I was able to wear my long-sleeved Dallas Cowboys shirt back then. Also, I stayed safe while I was walking in the sun because I was worried that I would get sunburned while I was on my medication. Now, I don’t think I have to worry about that too much anymore.
Whenever I decide to walk into the grass again, I will use the OFF Wipes that I have in my home. This way, I can try to stop myself from getting tick bites and Lyme disease again.
I also promised myself that I would never go to my “undisclosed location” in one of our state parks again. That was where I got my tick bite in the first place. Now, one of my neighbors went camping recently … and I also told this person to stay safe while he was going outdoors … and I gave him tips on how to avoid getting tick bites while camping out at the campsite. The neighbor actually followed my tips well.
Now, I can honestly say that most of my Lyme disease symptoms are now gone. There’s still a very still red bump on my right leg, but other than that, the rash that went with it is now gone … hopefully for good.
