Let’s Talk About A Past Blog Post: I’m no longer in the “Lyme” light

In June of 2016, I wrote a short blog post entitled “I’m no longer in the ‘Lyme’ light.”  I said that my Lyme disease symptoms were gone … and I also said that I didn’t have to take my medicine anymore.  I was inspired to write this blog post down because I wanted to let you guys know that I was no longer suffering from Lyme disease.

Here’s a link to the blog post …

Joseph’s Top Blog Posts For April 2018

Can you believe it?  The month of April is here … and, in just a few short weeks, I will turn 32.  Well, today, I’m gonna tell you about the blog posts that I’ll be writing down in April.

One of my blog posts will be entitled “Happy 30th Birthday, Sarah!”  On April 26th, my cousin, Sarah Smith, will turn 30 years old … and I will talk about the event in a blog post then.

A few days ago, I wrote a blog post entitled “‘Mr. Classy’ Goes To Pittsburgh” … and, in it, I talked about Mr. Classy’s first trip to Pittsburgh.  Well, on April 4th, he will take another trip to Pittsburgh … and, at some point in April, I will write a blog post entitled “‘Mr. Classy’ Goes To Pittsburgh Again!”  It will be about Mr. Classy’s second trip to the Steel City.

Another one of my blog posts will be entitled “An ‘ode’ to a classy person named Jay.”  It’s about a friend of mine, whose first name is Jay.  I won’t tell you who it is yet, but I will do it in a blog post at some point this month.

I will also write my 850th blog post in April … and, in it, I will make an announcement about the future of my blog.

I will also use my features in four of my blog posts this month.  Let me tell you how I will be using them this time around.

The homemade tick repellent worked!

It has been one week since I returned from my “undisclosed location.”  Last year, whenever I went to this “undisclosed location,” I might have gotten bit by a tick while I was walking through a grassy area.  This year, while I was at my “undisclosed location,” I stayed out of the grass … and I did everything I could to stop myself from getting tick bites and even Lyme disease.  I wore a hat throughout most of this trip … and I also wore a long-sleeved shirt while I was on my trip.  I tucked my shirt into my long pants … and I also tucked my pants into my socks as well.  I also wore my new Revolution 3 shoes from Nike.

Now, let me tell you how I was able to stop myself from getting tick bites this time.  I used my new homemade tick repellent, which is made out of peppermint oil, and it seemed to work.  I was able to stop the ticks from coming towards me.  Ticks hate peppermint oil … and I think I was right about it.

I will continue to use it here at home this summer … and I’ll use it again if I ever travel to another “undisclosed location” this year.

Remembering Joseph’s Battle With Lyme Disease One Year Later

One year ago today, one of the nurses, who was working in the Emergency Room at St. Clair Hospital, said that I had Lyme disease.  I had a rash on my leg and I also had flu-like symptoms for a couple of days before I got that diagnosis.  The rash resembled a bulls-eye also.  I had gotten bit by a tick while I was at my “undisclosed location” several days earlier.  I’ve been doing well since then … and I’m trying to stop myself from getting Lyme Disease again.  I have a homemade tick repellent, which is made out of peppermint oil, and I will be using it many times this tick season.

Today, I’m gonna let you see my experiences with Lyme disease again.  I wrote some blog posts about it last year.

I wrote my three-part blog post, which is entitled “Joseph’s Recovery From Lyme Disease,” back in late June of 2016.

Joseph’s Top Blog Posts For June 2017

Can you believe it?  The month of June is here … and we are almost halfway through 2017 already.

I will be giving my features a break this month … and, in some of my blog posts this month, I will talk about some of the milestones that I will be celebrating this month.

One of my blog posts will be entitled “Remembering Joseph’s Battle With Lyme Disease One Year Later.”  I first got Lyme Disease one year ago this month.  It was found early … and I was able to get rid of my Lyme Disease symptoms a few days later.  I wrote some blog posts about my experiences with it last year … and I will let you guys read those blog posts for yourselves again.

Another one of my blog posts will be entitled “I have been working at T.J. Maxx for 10 years now!”  Now, I had actually worked at the Bridgeville T.J. Maxx store as a volunteer from September of 2006 until June of 2007.  Then, on June 11, 2007, they hired me to work there as a regular employee.  I currently work there once a week, but, several years ago, I worked there twice a week.

Another one of my blog posts will be entitled “My mother is turning 50 today!”  My mother, Susan Pratt, will turn 50 on June 19, 2017 … and I will talk about the event in one of my blog posts on June 19th.

Another one of my blog posts will be entitled “I have had a classy friend for one year!”  Last June, I became friends with a person named Jonathan Reed, who is married to one of my classmates from school.  I turned my new friend into one of Mr. Classy’s “stand-ins” just days after we became friends.  He’s a very classy person indeed.

I will also talk about some more interesting things in my blog posts this month.  Enjoy your day, my friends!

I’m ready for tick season!

Can you believe it?  It has almost been one year since I first got Lyme disease.  I had bitten by a tick at the location that I was at a few days earlier.  It was an event that I will never forget.   I will actually talk about that experience in one of my blog posts next month.

As you know, tick season has arrived … and I’m doing everything I can to stop myself from getting tick bites this year.  I now have a homemade tick repellent at home … and it’s made with peppermint oil.  I actually used the repellent earlier today … and I really like it.  I’ll be using it many times this season.

Joseph’s Top Blog Posts Of 2016 (Part 1)

In this two-part blog post, I’m gonna talk about some of the year’s top blog posts.  These blog posts have been seen by various people at least 10 times during the past year.

Today, I’m gonna show you two of my top blog posts from this past year.

One is called “I bought a new Pirates shirts at Giant Eagle this week!”  It has been seen by various people 18 times this past year.  I first wrote that blog post back in March of 2015.

Another one is called “How I got Lyme disease” … and I wrote it down back in June.  It was seen by various people 12 times this past year.

If you’d like to see those two blog posts again, you can click on the links here …

How I got Lyme disease

Tomorrow, I will wrap up this two-part blog post by showing you two more of my top blog posts from the past year.

I had Lyme disease six months ago!

Six months ago today, I was first diagnosed with Lyme disease at a Pittsburgh area hospital.  It seems like I just got diagnosed with it yesterday.  I have been doing fairly well since then … and hopefully, I will never be able to show any signs of Lyme disease any more times in the future.

I first got Lyme disease three months ago!

Happy Labor Day, everyone!  Three months ago, I got Lyme disease.  I almost didn’t know that I actually had it.  I saw a rash on my leg … and then I had flu-like symptoms.  I thought I was just having the flu or something, but it turned out that I was showing the symptoms of Lyme disease.  I was thinking, “how could I get a rash while I was showing the symptoms of the flu?”  Well, it happened to me … and luckily, it was spotted early.  I am pleased to announce that my Lyme disease symptoms are now long gone … and hopefully I will never have to go through that again.  It was an experience that I will never forget!
