On November 1st, 2013 I was diagnosed with Chronic Lyme Disease with coinfection of Babesia and Bartonella with the possibility that I have Erlichia as well (testing is under way). I am still trying to get my mind around the whole concept. The reason I have started this thread is that several members have reached out to me in PMs to offer their support, and also to ask some more questions about the disease. I want to thank all of you for the support, but also I would like to respond in a way that others might benefit from my (limited but rapidly growing) experience. Lyme disease is a very serious concern for anybody who is outdoors at all. The more you are outdoors and where you are outdoors might determine you possible level of exposure. Hunters are particularly susceptible due to the close contact with their prey which is often infested with ticks. But you can just as easily get it from working in your garden right in the middle of town. I am aware of the fact that there is a lot of information available out there (as a matter of fact I highly recommend a few resources I have found), but I am wondering if there is enough interest here on FTF to support this thread, and I am also wondering if Y'All would like for Dr. Football and me to do one of our Podcast shows on the subject. So what do Y'All say? Shall we get started or is there only limited interest in?
