A lady that went to school with my sister was diagnosed with Lyme's disease probably 10 years ago and she's never fully recovered. A few years ago the vet found Lyme's in our dogs when checking their blood. He put both on antibiotics
and the grass is always mowed every week. The barrier between the two developments is like a jungle. I kept the area behind me mowed for years until they told me to keep off. It's full of foxes and coons. Hal

The darned things are thick around here, when the neighbor across the lane is busy, if I'm here I'll always walk their dog, which is a pug, very light color fur and short, he will be clean of them before I take him out, in no time he will have a 1/2 dozen ticks, I do believe she treats him for those, he loves to play, kind of a bigger one of these and a good looker for having a cabover type face instead of the conventional long nose LOL !

We never had ticks here when I was a kid, obviously since deer came back, they came with them. I am getting real attentive to the slightest sensation on the skin, and detecting them before they bite, if thats any consolation.....which it is I think, always have read they have to be on 24-36 hours or so before they can transmit the disease.

The first time I ever heard of Lyme's disease was about 20 years ago. A game warden in western MD was having a lot of heath issues similar to some of the symptoms posted on here. Before they knew what he had, he died. Hal

I think it was a lot less prevalent, medical professionals did not seem to be well versed in it either. We never had ticks though either, I never saw one as a kid, we had livestock too.

I've got some other info to provide for the doctor, darned white footed/field mice have gotten in again, as is usual this time of year, first sign I put traps everywhere inside/outside, just go to war on them, you can catch something from them, being ill, have not got the remainder of traps out yet, no doubt they're ahead of me.

I plowed my larger garden patch though I know the leach field is close to one end, I found the top of pipe between the concrete tank and distribution box, water was clear at least, system is working well, reached in with gloves on, cleared some dirt that fell in, left a section of pipe, a 90 fitting as it changes direction, have a fernco fitting as well, easy fix, I just cant complete the hand work yet, washed my hands but good after, but will mention to the doctor. Well at least I finally know where the darned thing is now, field is much deeper, than the pipe before it and I had a small ornamental tree come up and been growing to the left, as I really did not know where the lines were, but that plow sheared the few shallow roots off, up on a hill, well drained likely never an issue, even then I can do those in my sleep, I like the tree, I'll move the laterals if it ever causes trouble.
