And it is all to raise funds and awareness for Lyme Disease.
Maine legend Bill Chinnock, who battled Lyme disease, will be honored by an all star lineup of great musicians and friends...
In Maine, ticks are on the increase and you should take precautions when you go for a jaunt in the woods. Cover exposed skin and, it's recommended that you check yourself for the critters once you're inside to make sure none have attached themselves to you.
I have a friend and her mom has been sick for a few weeks. She was fine one day and within a few days she was in the ICU, she received the best of medical care and she passed away last week. It took less than two months. What caused all of this? A tick-borne disease called Powassan virus. This was Maine’s first documented case in about a decade.
The idea of ticks is gross enough, but the fact they are not just gross they can make you very sick, is very scary to me. Now I read that Lyme disease is about 10 times more common than previously reported. What?
That is one gross picture of those nasty little blood suckers. I have shared how much I HATE ticks and how they scare me. It is time to take on some facts about Lyme disease. How can we leave the house and protect ourselves, our families and pets.
That is my old dog, Coffee, he passed way from complications of Lyme disease. I love walking in the woods. In the Augusta area we have some AMAZING places to walk. But I have become overcome by fear. I am scared of ticks and Lyme disease.
