When I started getting sick back in March my step-mom was concerned that I might have Lyme Disease. Tennessee has had an outbreak of it the last few years. It’s gotten so bad that people who never leave the cities have started getting it. She was worried about me because I had been to Tennessee several times since 2010 for both business and pleasure.
Turns out that her concern was warranted; but not for me.
Yesterday my father text me and informed me that my step-mom tested positive for Lyme Disease. We’re not sure yet whether it was caught in time. Contrary to belief you don’t always develop the telltale rash that’s an indicator of Lyme Disease.
It can be a serious problem if you don’t catch it in time. But if you don’t develop the rash and the stage one symptoms resemble the flu surely it’s easy to miss the signs?
Right now we’re hoping for the best.
