A while back I attended a tick workshop about these hateful creatures. Shortly after I discovered a reddish area behind my knee with what appeared to be be part of an insect embedded in the center. I did a course of antibiotics and hopefully that will be the end of it.
I’ve heard personal accounts about how difficult it is to have chronic Lyme disease acknowledged. I’m including a link to a documentary that explores that.
If you go outside, check yourself out. I now wear tick gaiters when walking off the trails.
