Today was my 9 year olds birthday party at an outdoor laser tag place. It was amazing, and they had so much fun. But, ticks, ticks, everywhere! Someone took 2 crawling ticks off my 3 year old. Then an hour or so later, my husband looked down and one was attached to his hand. My 2 boys are stripped down right now and in the tub. I made them take their clothes off in the laundry room and put them straight into the washer, then go straight to the tub. My daughter and husband went to church this evening, and will be getting checked afterwards. I feel so paranoid, and I could tell that I was making my 9 year old worry. He said, all this from my birthday party? I don't want to be like this!
I was diagnosed by a LLMD in early March, but I'm not doing any treatment right now. I am contemplating getting a 2nd opinion, because I feel like he was going to tell me I had Lyme no matter what. Whether I have it or not, I've been researching like a crazy lady, and now I'm paranoid. It doesn't help that my pastor shared today in service that he was bit 2 weeks ago, and has been so sick the past week. His Dr put him on abx just in case.
Ugh, I hate this feeling!
