Lyme disease — transmitted by infected deer ticks — is a threat to any adult or child, who spends time outdoors, who gardens, who plays in grassy or woody areas.
Just another quick reminder:

Thanks to the CDC for these helpful photos of these blacklegged or deer ticks that transmit this dangerous disease. Please note that they’re often so small that they’re hard to notice.
(For instance, I didn’t have a clue that I’d been sucked by one of these tiny critters. Never saw it, never felt it. My alarming symptoms such as overpowering fatigue, ferocious headaches, unsettling brain fog and embarrassing irritability, as well as my memory lapses and flitting from subject to subject, alerted me that something was wrong with me.)
