Glad to hear you have recovered from the hell, that Lyme Disease can cause.
I, like you, never gave Lyme a second thought, until I was bitten by a tick, and developed a rash. I began researching Lyme, and was shocked what I
found out. I was tested for Lyme, and the results were negative. However, I have also read where the tests for Lyme are not very accurate. I was put
on Doxycyclin for 10 days, as a precaution, while the test was being done.
I have been very tired, with no motivation since I was bitten. I think I may actually have the disease, and the test results were just not accurate. I
was bitten in the belly-button, of all places. I felt something in my belly-button, and passed it off as just a bump. The "bump" was still there
after four days, so I took a mirror, and found a small brown tick inside. I pulled it out, luckily the head came with it, and I cleaned the area with
hydrogen-peroxide, and applied antibiotic ointment. I did not seek medical help till about a week later, when the area became red, and started
itching. I did not know at the time, I should have saved the tick for testing.
I realize this bacteria has been around for thousands of years. I also do not think it is a coincidence, that Plum Island is only 10 miles from the
town where the outbreak occurred. I know there are coincidences, but this is just not one, in my opinion. Here is a lab, doing all kinds of testing
on biological things, and lo and behold, this disease starts, and spreads from a town just 10 miles away.
I believe that some kind of experiments were being done with this bacteria, and somehow it was accidentally released, possibly by a tick that was on
a person that worked there. Maybe they lived in Lyme, Conn.
Maybe a tick crawled out of the building. It would not take more than a small crack for the tick to get through. Possibly the tick attached to a bird,
and the bird flew to the town, or surrounding area. There are many ways this bacteria could have gotten from the lab, to Lyme Conn. Or maybe it was
All I know, is it's just "TOO" coincidental that Lyme Disease started to spread in a town just 10 miles from Plum Island. And like another, who
posted the map of the spread of Lyme Disease, with the highest percentage of Lyme Disease is in the North East, that is a red-flag, in my opinion.
Another thing I found out during my research, most everyone with Morgellon's Disease, has Lyme Disease.
The main stream medical community does not recognize Morgellon's , as an actuall disease, but tell that to someone that has it.
I am a firm believer in Kharma, and if these two diseases from hell, were spread either by accident, or on purpose, I pray those responsible, will
suffer a thousand times more, than the suffering these diseases have caused so many people.
