This picture is everything “Lyme related” I needed to pack for our trip. I felt compelled to share this, not because I’m complaining butI hope it will encourage EVERYONE to be vigilant about protecting yourself from ticks.
I don’t want anyone to ever have to deal with any of this! Believe me, you don’t want to experience this mess. Tick population is expected to increase as global warming intensifies, more ticks = more Lyme Disease. If you do get bit, see a Lyme Literate doctor immediately. They will treat you correctly and minimize the chance of developing last stage Lyme Disease.
