It seemed pretty cool to have dozens of deer hanging out in our backyard. We got over the fact that they devoured our treeline from 6′ down – they needed food.

Unfortunately, with deer come deer ticks. As they frequented our backyard, they also left their payload on the trees and I guess I picked one of the little suckers up while mowing the lawn.

Never saw the tick, but sure had the evidence. I’m now a statistic – one of the thousands of Massachusetts residents who contracted Lyme Disease.

Had I done a little more homework, I would’ve had this under control right away. I accepted the diagnosis by the Nurse Practioner and didn’t ask questions. Wrong move!
