Fresh Hell



I took the kids to a Lake Monsters ballgame Monday night.  It was 25 cent hotdog night.  7986 sold, but I was not tempted.  Kristen wouldn't eat a hotdog except at the ballgame and Dane had two.  It was crowded, but the game was a good one although the LM lost 4-5.

We got home at 10:30 and all of a sudden I was dead tired.  I slept until ten in the morning, but The fatigue was coming at me waves.  And I had chills and fevers.  I basically stayed in bed for days.  I was blaming it on the crowd and germs of a a crowded public place.  I thought I had flu.

But, know what else causes aches and pains, severe headache, extreme fatigue, and mental fog? Lyme disease from a tick bite.  I have this unreasonable dread fear of tick bites, one.  And two, I noticed this this afternoon:


That's god-awful nasty looking.  Or I could try to pass it off as a watercolor bloom tattoo?

  4. If you would google tick bites you would see some pictures just like this... Best go to the doctor, especially since you had a fever.

  5. Ouch! I've had Lyme disease three times ... it is nothing to take casually. Get your antibiotic. And then bug spray, long pants, and say out of the long grass! Hope you feel better.

  6. Please get that checked. Early treatment is vital. Also even a negative test can be wrong. They recommend several tests as it takes a while for the antibodies to show up. With that classic bulls eye, you should be started on antibiotics even with an original negative test. Saw this on TV just the other day. Please let us know.

  8. I've never seen what a Lyme tick bite looks like. I hope it is does not turn out as bad as it looks.
