Get “Ticked Off” with Writer Tula Karras, Another Lyme Disease Sufferer

What a coincidence!

This afternoon, I’m in my doctor’s office waiting to get an antibiotic injection to kill off my Lyme disease when I find this remarkable personal essay, "Ticked Off," about Lyme disease.

You won’t be able to put down this powerful, poignant personal essay, which appears in the June issue of Self Magazine. In the piece, writer Tula Karras reveals how she endured a decade — yes, 10 years! — of fatigue, brain fog and body aches before getting her Lyme disease diagnosed. Not only that, but friends, family members and even doctors thought she was making up her symptoms!

My heart so goes out to Tula.

Well, time for me to say thanks again that my Lyme disease was caught early. I certainly don’t feel sorry for myself anymore — I’ve only been suffering for a few months from this disease, which I’ve posted about several times, including here.

Anyhow, if you don’t know about this tick-triggered disease, please learn about it. One way, in addition to reading Tula’s "Ticked Off" article, is to check out the special one-hour Gab With the Gurus Radio Show in which I interviewed several experts about the disease. And listen to the show here.

Also make sure to read Tula’s sidebars, "What Lyme Disease Looks Like" and "If I Knew Then What I Know Now."

In this time of beautiful fall foliage, please check yourself for ticks after coming back from outdoors. You do not want to suffer from this awful disease. Now read Tula’s essay.
