Sometimes you have to take the bad with the good when you feel under the weather. But then again, when it's treatable, it's not such a bad thing, especially when it could turn much worse.
When I made my last post, little did I know that a couple days later I'd find a strange rash above my ankle caused by a tick bite. The doc took one look and said it could be a sign of early stage Lyme Disease. The general symptoms included fatigue and flu-like bouts, which I had plenty of.
The good news is that I caught it early got some treatment, and hopefully will see the last of it soon. At this stage of the disease, the cure is worse than the sickness. But I do count myself as lucky and I do advise all reenacting bros to keep a close eye on any tick bites.
Although the symptoms have taken me away from the computer, I'm beginning to feel like myself again. I even went to Gettysburg for a living history last weekend, and I'm primed to start writing again.
Thanks for hanging in there with me.
