I woke up in the middle of the night one week ago with an engorged tick on my belly ....

a few inches from where my original bite was when I was diagnosed almost exactly two years ago!


It's been one week and today, I had a tell-tale "strange symptom" that I also had two years ago when I was first trying to figure out what the heck was happening to my body!


Today I was out at the barn visiting my horses and I broke a carrot in half. As soon as the carrot broke, I got a sharp pain and immediate blue


line (broken blood vessel) in my left thumb. This same thing happened two years ago except in my index finger while making my bed and later the same


day in my index finger on my other hand just while typing at my desk! I have been coy about accepting that I might be re-infected with Lyme


from this latest bite but today pretty much was the rude acceptance that I needed. *sigh*


Today I will be calling my LLMD to schedule an appointment. I am SO NOT wanting to go through treatment again. :'(


Below is a picture of the bruise that immediately came up on my thumb today just from breaking a carrot in two. *sigh*

Such a bummer. You caught it early though so maybe you'll bounce back quicker.

Every year though those nasty ticks have more diseases than they did the year before. Be vigilant and track every symptom.

You need to start antibiotics immediately! I realize now that I've been reinfected many times - mostly from mosquitoes, not ticks!

I waited almost two weeks to start doxy the last time I was bitten (by a mosquito) and my dr. found out that the bite reactivated my old Lyme.

Antibiotics weren't enough to put me back in remission. I did IV ozone blood irradiation and allergie-immun drops. It took me three months for me to be in remission again.

Thankfully, my LLMD's office called back and my Dr DID call in a big script for Doryx! Hubby is bringing it to me right now!

Also, my appt. was moved up to May 17 and I am sending the tick off to IGENEX for testing tomorrow!

Thanks everyone!
