No I'm sure I wouldn't. Have a young cousin who suffered pretty bad with it, took to long to figure out the problem. Really strong antibiotics after I guess. She was only around 12yrs old at the time.
I still would NOT want a red meat allergy, that would probably kill me. Don't get me wrong, I absolutely love Vegis. Just couldn't imagine passing on a good juicy steak or some flame grilled bacon wrapped venison backstrap...

No it isn't fun. I was diagnosed in the spring of 10 and probably became infected the previous summer. I was pretty miserable. My Lyme immediately went to my nervous system with excruciating neuritis that attacked my left shoulder, ribs and neck.I was on megadoses of Doxycycline for almost a year along with drugs for the pain and inflammation. Along with the pain, fever, flu like symptoms, rashes and double vision, I had brain fog and a loss of balance. I couldn't go down hill without feeling like I was going to fall. The only way I could keep track of what was going on when I was at work was to carry a thick spiral notebook around with me and write things down.

 

Slowly, the symptoms eased off but I was left with chronic Lyme. Mainly my big problem is dealing with the occasional flare up of the neuritis pain. Part of the inflammation in my back is because of the lasting effects of Lyme Disease.

 

I love meat, a thick juicy steak cooked medium rare, prime rib, you name it but I would gladly never savor another mouthful if it meant never having to feel the effects of Lyme disease again for the rest of my life.

Reading a book, picked up from the dollar store for a buck. Thought it was a western, kinda, but not like one I've ever read before Lol!

DW said there is a movie, I asked is it as... she said 'it was dumb, don't think I watched half of it'. Can't wait to watch it :lau

Anyone else watch it? For a clue, maybe, came to this part and thought of this thread and how kids can't live without the internet :gig

 

A young boy raced past them, deftly using a stick to guide a rolling metal hoop down the street.

"I see kids everywhere with those stick hoops lately," Albert observed.

"It's gotta be bad for their brains, right?" said Edward.

"It HAS to be. Stunts their attention spans. There was a article in the paper."

"I read that. It said it's making them unable to focus on more long-term, thought-intensive tasks."

"Exactly, it's the death of innovation. I'm telling you, when intellectual progress comes to a screeching halt twenty years from now, you can thank the stick hoop."

:old

"You harshed my Chi" and "you are harshing my Chi" are things people say now.


Is this because I live in hippie ville? Or do other folks say that too?

 

This is precisely why I don't talk to most people.

Just asked dw#2 as they went out to school bus. Called her name repeatedly.... I got "what do you want from my life?"
Hmmm!
But no, she's never heard that saying.
