  •  It's the numbers - (7+ / 0-)

    I don't know what percentage of ticks are carriers of the various tick-borne diseases, but I've never won a lottery. Even so, I'm fine with erring on the side of caution.

    •  In your situation, never having been bitten before (6+ / 0-)

      I'd probably be making a doctors appointment right now, but having been bitten many times, for many years before knowing there was such a disease, it'd be a little pointless to get tested now since as KB said, if not diagnosed and treated early then it's going to be a lifelong regime of shots. And even if that weren't true, there's still the fact that I know I will be bitten many more times in the future. I don't relish the thought of getting Lyme disease but I don't relish the thought of getting treated with a round of antibiotics every time I get bit for the rest of my life either. I'm also betting that I've built up some kind of immunity to it over the years too. Que Sera, Sera
