Learn about Lyme disease and Never say Never !!

Learn to recognise the symptoms of Lyme disease and don't for one minute believe because you don't live in the USA or Europe, you can't get Lyme disease.  First Big Mistake !!

If Lyme is identified in this early stage and treated with an appropriate course of antibiotics, it can go away. However, doesn’t  be trapped into believing that because you have been treated, that you can't get Lyme again.

If another infected tick bites you, you can get Lyme again.  Remember,  there is NO Lyme vaccine.  One was created in the late 90's and pulled from the market a few years later when it was discovered it set-off Lyme like symptoms.  The bacteria, Borrelia burgdorferi, can lie dormant in your body for years, until a trauma in your life happens.  A bad fall, a motor accident, stress... !

To re-iterate... The is NO Lyme vaccine, there is No cure for Lyme disease and people have been known to die a horrible debilitiating death from it.
