Two years ago today, I was diagnosed with Lyme disease, just days after I got bit by a tick. It happened while I visited my “undisclosed location” back in May of 2016. Since then, I have done everything I could to stop myself from getting it again. I stay safe whenever I walk outdoors near wooded areas … and I use our homemade tick repellent, whenever I possibly can.
I received my Lyme Disease diagnosis while I was at St. Clair Hospital two years ago. In the days before I got the diagnosis, I had flu-like symptoms and I had a rash on my right leg. It looked like a bulls-eye a little bit. The next day, I started taking my medicine to get rid of my symptoms … and the symptoms of Lyme Disease were gone by the end of June. I had a “Charley Horse” in one of my legs just before I went to St. Clair Hospital that evening … and I guys you could say it saved my life. If I hadn’t gotten the “Charley Horse” then, I probably wouldn’t been able to get my Lyme Disease diagnosis right away … and I probably wouldn’t be here today.
Stay away from ticks if you are gonna go outdoors this Summer!
