You're not going to believe this! When I was getting dressed this morning I found a deer tick latched into my skin. It pulled out really easily, so it couldn't have been there too long, but there long enough to turn the site pink. Yesterday, it had rained, so when I was outside with the dog, I kept away from all the edges of the yard, and didn't touch a weed, plant or flower, just stayed in the cut grass. Took my bath and showered off last night, and did not see the thing until this morning.
I am just getting the cefriaxone out of my system, went back to work yesterday, and it is hard not to be upset or to panic. I know that they can't be all carrying Lyme, and we are treating it immediately. Also sending the tick to be tested. I still had 30 doxycycline left from
April before going on the IV. I was planning to do an herbal treatment just to be safe to make sure the infection that was present is gone (still planning that). I really wasn't expecting to be back on abx again this soon after the IV was just finished on June 1.
I do also always check my dog when we come in, but have missed them on him too. My husband thinks it might have crawled off the dog onto me during the night. It's a possibility. I need to find something that works! I haven't gotten out to look for B1 yet, and the chiropractor didn't have any. This is crazy!
