Out of the Blue

I want to thank Brian, a user who registered an account here yesterday to suggest I get myself tested for Lyme disease, as the symptoms I describe fit that pretty well. Recalling Hudson the wonder dog's bouts with Lyme remind me that her limping was the first symptom we noticed, so my achy joints fit that aspect of it too well. I'll call the doctor today, and hopefully they can get me in pretty quickly for a blood test and/or examination. This will be unusual for me, as I am not someone who is prone to visiting the doctor when I'm not feeling well. I think the last time I was at the doctor outside of a checkup was when I had knee surgery, and the last time I went to the doctor because I was feeling ill was when I had the chicken pox as a little boy.

Do you give the Gunnar-man a trick treatment each spring? You know the stuff you drop on the back of their neck?

He wears a prescription flea collar my vet swears by as being better than those drops. I'm not wild about an insecticide collar, but it seems preferable to infusing the dog's entire skin with insecticide. But maybe I just think to much about these things.

Our (standard) poodle wore a flea collar, worked well enough. Still found ticks all over that damn dog. He was a trooper though, always let us get at the ticks with rubbing alcohol and tweezers. Very patient dog.

My Dr. told me I had markers for Lyme, but don't have the disease. Said likely that I had contact with Lyme at some point, but I don't actually have lyme. Whatever that means. Gathered I probably picked it up in Georgia while I was down there for OSUT (basic + AIT). I do have achy joints quite a bit, but that also could be from my service in general.

Wife keeps badgering me about my hands being shaky a little bit, but it's only when flexing my hands; at rest there's no shake, and hands still do what I tell them to at all times.


I dunno.
