Hello. I am Thomas' wife & had Lyme Disease twice. Your 1st link looks li
ke a Deer tick which is the carrier of Lyme. The co-infections they also c
arry are usually worse than Lyme. I did contract neurological Lyme which a
ffected my memory, word recall, vision, speech...not happy times. But I al
so got Babesiosis, Bartonella, Erlichia, and a pulmonary fungus that I coul
dnt fight off bc the Lyme killed my immune system.
I no longer go camping, hiking, picnicking...in fact I dont walk in grass E
VER!!! I will not brush up against shrubs or weeds and I dont visit friend
s who have pets.
Lyme disease & all the bad things that come with it took away my love of na
I suggest watching the video "Under Our Skin" on You Tube. It's not the be
st format but it's the full documentary. "UNDER OUR SKIN 2008 FULL DOCUMEN
TARY" by Hoo Jyn. A lot of info & pharmaceutical controversy.
I wish you the best of luck & health. Lyme is much worse than what we're b
eing lead to believe.
