Erik in New England. Massachusetts currently. I’m at firstname.lastname@example.org
No Lyme or co-infections for me yet. But if we don’t move, I pretty much guarantee that I will someday. But for 1 kid, 1 spouse, and the dog? Yes.
The way I look at it is as follows. If you live an active lifestyle and are outside a lot? Take the CDC Lyme stats for your state and multiply by 10. Have a dog? Multiply by 10. Live in suburbs with woods on the edge of your property? Multiply by 10. So that’s 1000x.
That explains how pretty much everyone I know
- has had a tick and treated with antibiotics and got better
- knows someone (family or friend) that did NOT get better
It’s an epidemic. It’s a mess. And antibiotics will not save us. Read my PREVENT page for more info.
