"Ritchie, You are not the only one that has noticed that. Patients are expendable, especially if they have exhausted all the angles to make a profit on you! If you don't fit one of the pigeon holes in their check off list, forget it!"

Lyme Disease

      Nasty thing that Lyme disease. I recall working down in the Carolina's doing subdivision surveys and at the end of the day picking of 20-30 of those Black Legged Ticks from my bare skin before jumping into the shower.

Scott Goebel replied to Ritchie MacInnis's discussion Lyme Disease
"I have always gotten at least one tick each year. When younger, I never thought that getting Lyme would be that bad, I was tough as nails and never thought I was going to be old and decrepit. Well it caught up with me some time…"

"Hi Ritchie, Sulfur Power in your socks helps too. Make sure your not allergic to sulfur some people are, but it works great on ticks and chiggers.This is mainly found on deer ticks in north America. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lyme_disease"
