John F. Sullivan found and posted a video on the Facebook Mississippi River group this morning that is the best description of Lyme Disease that I've seen. Even after having an exposure to this two years ago, there was a lot of information here the I didn't know. Also, one of the problems with the disease is that a lot of doctors don't understand it or take it seriously, so self-education is all that more important so you know what to expect, how to detect it, what to do about it, and most importantly, how to try to prevent exposure. Prompt action is critical to recovery, and I was fortunate that I was visiting our doctor on another issue when my wife suggested I discuss being bitten by a tick in Wisconsin, one of the nation's hotbeds of the disease. He didn't waste a minute, but jumped on the problem right away, which undoubtedly prevented many more serious complications.
Since not all of you may subscribe to the Mississippi River group, I thought it important to help spread the word by offering it here also. Please take a look at this.
