You know one of the things that bugs me the most is researching this disease and finding evidence that this bacteria has been found in the guts of a lot of different biting insects...not just tics. But we are constantly seeing things about tic id cards and such. Why is this when there are so many other vectors?
Is it comprehendable that this bacteria is probably not so selective that it only chooses to enter the human body through a tic and not the other critters that it inhabitates? It is a scary thought...but seems more likely since most people don't even remember a tick bite or being outdoors where ticks may be lurking.
Anybody with any thoughts on this? (My lyme brain keeps pondering this and won't let me stop!!!)
