Month of MAY is Lyme Disease Awareness

Education and Prevention is the Key http://www.livinglyme.com/Lyme-Basics.html http://www.livinglyme.com/Prevention.html

It's May and it's Lyme Disease Awareness Month. PLEASE watch out for ticks. It's going to be bad this year since we did not have a COLD winter. Please check your loved ones after they have been outdoors. If you find a tick on someone, go to the doctor right away to have it removed.

Here are some of the this people with Lyme Disease feel: I would say something to the effect of "Imagine the worst flu you ever had. Then imagine sometime when you sprained your ankle, or broke a bone, or something that made it hard for you to walk or function. Then, imagine not sleeping for 3 days straight. Then imagine how it feels when you have something on the tip of your tongue, but you can't remember it for the life of you. Then imagine tripping and dropping things randomly, walking into walls, feeling like your hands don't function anymore. Then imagine having the most severe migraine you've ever had. Then imagine not being able to eat and gaining weight. Then imagine the worst bout of depression and loneliness you ever felt. Then imagine having anxiety and immense fear. Now, put all of that together at once, and imagine someone telling you that it's all in your head and what you are experiencing isn't real." Feeling this and not able to work to help bring money into the house hold. And trying to live here on Long Island it's really ruff.
