Lyme Disease, round two.

My thigh has a Jupiter on it, with its own great red spot -- in this case an ovoid hurricane of spirochetes.  Anyone who plays tick bite roulette here -- and I've had eight or ten tick bites this month -- is lucky to be taking only 2 or 3 weeks worth of antibiotics.

The doctor at the walk in clinic said they're getting 7 or 8 cases a day.  And he gave me the prescription.
