LOL I might have Lyme Disease.
I was out at my Grandfathers farm cutting back brush so the people renting it could plant this week. I got back and caught one tick crawling up my jeans (on the outside). So me and the daughter of the renter (who was out there with us) did a tick check. But that's for the Anti-Rants page
That was Saturday.Monday I found a tick...on my ass. Luckily it was on the side, so I could get it off. Put some [brand-name] gel over it like my mom used to do so it would sufficate or something. Anyway, now the area is really red, but bite spot is kind of hard, and according to my doctor (who I called this afternoon), my random sore joints are a second indication of Lyme disease. So I'm going Friday to a doc here to get it checked out. Only thing I can figure is that I had my dirty clothes sitting right next to the ones I was going to put on while we were in the shower. Maybe he crawled over then, cause I was tick-free after that shower.
So anyone know anybody that's had it?
not to make you feel any worse or anything... but lyme disease is some awful crap... hope you dont have it

been there, tried that. hard when you still live at home, and theyre always home on the weekends so they know when youre covered in paint. not to mention, they made me clean and organize all my pb gear so that they can monitor and tell if anything is missing (its being stored downstairs in the computer room right now)
and i have a feeling this will lead to me not being allowed to do any day long anythings on the weekends, cos theyll assume its a cover for paintball. same with tuesday nights. no life all summer: here i come.
that rreally sucks if you dont mind me asking what is wrong?
The thing is, it happened last July. I've played paintball perfectly safely ever since, with several month-long breaks in between during the winter... it didnt make it any better. Theres just no logic behind not playing for a few weeks... I could understand if they were instituting something to make it better at the same time, but that appointment isnt until monday. I feel like I easily could have played this week (even though its a moot point, i had/have the flu) and waited to see what the doctor said. Its kind of like, if this is the start of me not being able to play for a month, let me enjoy my last hurrah.
