The utility company that I work(ed) for gave me numerous pieces of safety equipment (special boots, clothing, reflective vests, etc) and many safety lectures. My job was to walk along power lines to inspect them, through all kinds of terrain yet, they never told me about Lyme, -- Nor did the local public service organizations. The only thing I heard, before I got infected, was that Lyme was a simple disease to treat -- like having the flu.
I am not one to jump to petty lawsuits. But, here I sit at week 9 -- After of 7 weeks of insufficient treatment, after many days of research to find a doctor that knows anything, after many days of feeling like _ _ _ _, after my employer questioning why I am not well yet -- and to top it off I am terrified every time I think about going into the woods.
-- So I'm thinking that the threat of a lawsuit might bring about some awareness.
Anyone have any thoughts or references that may help???
