urpaige: That's INSANE! Virginia is endemic for Lyme and the number of cases has grown by over 400% in the last three years! Tick studies have shown greater than 40% of ticks in Northern and Eastern VA to be infected with b. burgdorferi.

I saw an adult deer tick in my house back in February or March (when they aren't supposed to be active, according to some idiot who just pulled that "fact" out of their rear end).

Central VA is smack dab along the route of some migratory birds who also travel right through eastern NY state and west to the great lakes (Where over 75% of reported cases of Lyme disease come from). I CANNOT believe that anyone would be so ignorant to say that Lyme Disease doesn't exist in Central VA. Heck, even the CDC map of reported cases shows MANY dots in the central VA area.

I live in Richmond, and I got bit here in my very own yard! In the city!(the concrete isn't even safe)

I could probably go drag the grass in my yard right now and come back with at least ten deer ticks. And that's lowballing it, big time.

Southeast Georgia 1996/1997 my backyard... clearing brush to put up fences...pulled of many embedded ticks....but not to worry no Lyme in SE Georgia

Not diagnosed til 2009.

Strangely, I found out that the vets check for and are finding lyme.

--------------------
I am not a Doctor and I never played one on TV, I'm just a lab rat with Lyme trying to rid myself of this horrible disease.

ROBIN123.....

Bonjour! I am afraid the word is getting out only too slowly, and there are VERY few LLMDs around.

I call them Less than Lyme Literate here!! We managed to get our LLMD to follow Dr; B's protocol- which is way too outside the box here....

As Flippin said it's all in our minds!

Good luck with the list people!

What?
And why did they put up signs at the coast in Santa Cruz, warning against ticks? This was in 1989!

Kadee, Its a joke we have going on this post, most of us live in areas we were told lyme didnt exist. I like you link I will look at it in more detail later. From the brief glance i saw of it it didnt show all that many cases, But it does confirm one of my theories of the pacific flyway for migratory birds. thanks for your link

You can definitely get bit by ticks at the beach.. esp in the dunes where the grasses are.

Concrete is NOW my friend.. didn't use to be!! [Razz]

Virginia is where I was bit. In the Staunton, VA and Shenandoah area.

We were on vacation there in October 2001. I suddenly became very ill on our last night there and have been sick ever since. We had been golfing, walking on paths in the woods and even climbed a big beautiful tree to have my picture taken in it. [shake]

7 years (and a million doctors) later I tested positive for Lyme.

--------------------
Sick since 10/2001. Tested CDC positive for Lyme 10/2008 through Quest and Igenex. Started treatment 1/2009 with LLMD. Lyme, Erichilosis, Chlamydophila Pneumoniae, Q Fever, Strep Syndrome and probably a few others I am forgetting.

Razzle.. I've heard of others who were Lymed by fire ants. Very strange.... HOWEVER...

In Texas, fire ants EAT ticks. .. or tick larvae.

On our family's land .. where I was Lymed ... our ticks disappeared when the fire ants showed up in the 70's.
