When I was active duty in the fleet - the biggest fear I had coming out from a week of training in the field was ticks. I would check everywhere… and I mean EVERYWHERE, for those little bastards.
There is no kidding when it comes to Lyme disease.

It's the wrath of God, repent or get bitten.

On a lighter side...after working in the garden I always hose myself off with the water hose, I'm always in blouse and shorts so it's easy.I don't dare wait until evening when I take my normal shower. Scares the hell out of me just thinking about those evil creatures.

True, it is as bad a disease as others caused by parasites, like liberalism.

You are a liar. If you were in the Marine Corps you would know that it is the Marine Corps and not 'Marine Corp'.

Do you go around your neighborhood and tell everyone about your great military adventures? Maybe in the gay bars of Miami. Liar and scumbag.

Either register on topix or pick one name and stick to it, zippy. No one is impressed with your multiple personalities, you idiot.

Oh, yeah. That "big f-kn cvnt" is going to be your CIC in 3 years so stop your whining, put your big boy pants on and go brush your tooth.

A lady from CT had it for over a year before it was diagnosed and she is now walking with a cane. Lyme disease is nothing to mess around with.

If you had a scabies infection, Lice, a spider bite or even other insects carry these infections. It's not just ticks so it's become harder to protect yourself from infection.
A lot of people are working outside the meddical system because the antibiotics that doctors use don't cure and cause a lot of suffering in the process.
Borrelia becomes much more virulent in the presence of Bartonella which is more common than Borrelia. The most aware doctors think Borrelia should be considered a coinfetion to Bart.
Agrobacterium is used extensively to modify our food supply. The closest relative to Agrobacterium Is Bartonella bacteria. They share genes and abilities. Bartonella is intracellular so evades the immune system that way as well as releasing chemicals to shut down immunity. Agrobacterium is so like Bartonella it should be considered a Bartonella like organism.
Agrobacterium has the ability to readily change your DNA and is an opportunistic infection. The mutant DNA from agrobacterium is most likely responsible for Lyme disease developing into morgellons disease. Morgellons is linked to Lyme.
Since there is not much real research going on and after reading huge amounts of material Morgellons is likely to be a "Chronic lyme" infection with agrobacterium as a "co-infection". This wasn't caused by the government being evil it was cause by the government being incompetent.
