When I was 15, I was bitten by a tick while hunting. I never saw a rash. Several months after the bite, I started feeling sick. I lost weight, got a lot of sore throats and fevers and my muscles ached. My fingers and shoulder started twitching and my legs hurt so much I almost had to quite the basketball team. I was diagnosed with Lyme and treated for over a year. I’m better now and attend college. I’d like to tell all the doctors in our state that I am a testament to the fact that there is Lyme disease in Texas.
