LYMES

Post by sproulman » Wed Aug 16, 2017 8:34 am

Never thought a tick could cause so much health issues as I am having ..I was on phone with Jerry of South Shore Archery and could not explain what I wanted on my Zombie arrows..

It was good I called and not used the site to build my arrows.. :roll:

Thanks to Paul from Canada for checking with me after not seeing me on in awhile..Very nice folks here indeed... :wink:

Ticks are the only thing in the woods that scare me.

Poor local kid here, suffered for weeks before they treated him for Lyme disease. He had no bullseye around the bite, and more importantly, the mother says he had the tick on him way less than 24hrs, and still got Lyme disease.

Last one that got me was in october 2016 on Grouse hunt ..I started to get sick in dec thought it was flu.In march they said I had LYMES .Treated with meds felt better in may NOW back again and test shows NEGATIVE ..On meds again all from tick bite in october ..

The tests may show negative also.LYMES hides in your brain or behind your kneecaps where meds cannot reach ..When meds stop they sneak out and go after ya....

I have a lot of family in the New England area....Connecticut. I've hunted pheasants and rabbits there in and around Lyme County and Old Lyme County. Well, a few years back my cousin and his daughter (who also loves spending time afield with her dad) were both hit with Lyme's disease. The scary thing is that the tick can be sossmall you may not be able to see it. Hang in there Sproul, we're all rooting for you! :D

Thank you Paul...DCNR employee called me he was off a month with LYMES..They get bit all the time.He said he had to go to a specialist to help him.This guy is person who never gets sick or misses work...

Our government needs to make this a EMERGENCY so far nothing done and test can show negative and 6 months later positive then negative ..

LYMES hides in your brain or behind your kneecap where meds cannot reach it ..after you are done with meds it can come out of hiding if meds did not catch it...

My doctor has pic of rat with sly eyes that is LYMES..

I know a few guys with it, and my buddies son has it, he's only 17. Horrible disease to say the least. Prayers for you Jim, hope you can get by with the best you can, and still enjoy as much as of your life's pleasures for many more years Bud.

Jim, it's more than saying nice things, it's meaning them. There are so many good folks here that share what we love, and experience many of things we all do. Hunting, and Crossbows is most of it, but to truly engage in another members world, and issues sometimes go to the Off Topic page, but members support members. I too have some issues I don't care to share right now, but we are all very positive here at home. I hope you live for many more years dealing with the Lymes, and pray for you, my buddies kid Kyle, and many of my personal friends that suffer from the same ailment. I have a forum friend from Pennsylvania from another forum that I truly plan to meet soon on my way to Delaware. He's a fighter too, and lives out every day doing what he loves. He is more than a friend, he is an inspiration. I honestly wish you well, and pray for some Government support in eradicating or vaccinating against this soon.

We got picked as top Lymes /tick area in country...Northcentral pa...Poor dogs are dying from it also..I lost toby my lab with it now Whiskers has it at 3 years old and he gets Lyme shot every year...

I am able to walk now..Breathing is getting better ..My eyes are clearing up but I have those black floaters in my right eye.Still tired and my memory is coming back forgot everything on my crossbows had to start reading here to remember things etc ..

If you get bit go to doctor and DEMAND that you get doxcyline 100 mg ..DO NOT WAIT FOR CIRCLE OR RASH ...

I have friend he lost feeling in his left arm ..Why we are not in state of emergency here is beyond me ...Sadly there is no Cure for Lymes ..... :?

It is hard to believe a Tick can make you so sick..You are right I painted for 1 hr on trim of house now in house with Whiskers watching tv..This why if you get bit DO NOT WAIT FOR THE circle ..Go to doctor and demand the Doxcycline ...

Today floaters in my right eye went away.. :D Last time I had that was when I had WILD TURKEY 101 but I saw a black spider on the curtains in my bedroom .. :shock:

Boy they were days drink to 2 am and in at work at 7am work 12 hr day lifting 85 pds all day on railroad .heavy outside work in rain/heat/blizzards etc
