There is lyme in Florida..................one LLMD here told me about a horrid infestation noted years ago stemming from the Ocala National Forest.
When the CDC called to notify me I had tested positive for lyme (and had it) (before my LLMD did), they wanted to know where I had been to catch it and focused on a recent trip to Kentucky prior to my illness. But in hindsight, I think I got it right here on the east coast in a back yard of a house I was working on at the time.
fyi - I have been to the Mayo Clinic twice. They were absolutely positively NO HELP for me at all! Although I have heard they are good with some healthcare, for me, they were a complete waste of time, effort, hope and money. I would never refer anyone to them.
