    Hello London!
    Apparently your parks have ticks carrying the disease that shall not be named or discussed with your doctors, or which established methodologies shall not even be questioned. (Ok, now I'm being cheeky... maybe)

    Just be careful out there, my friends. If you notice a rash with the shape of a bullseye, seek immediate medical attention, seek doctors that understand this epidemic.

    PS: I lived in London many years ago; one of my favorite places in the world. Sad to see this curse is popping up there too. Be safe.

    PS: Interesting this news comes out the same week that notable businessman John Caudwell announced his entire family is affected by persistent Lyme.

    Does the UK keep track of canine Lyme incidences, I wonder? If I were a Londoner, I might take a look at that stat, if available. Track it over the last, say, five years. See where the numbers are heading.

    Incidentally, most canine diagnostics these days are done with the C6.

    Lots of Londoners on Lyme FB groups getting better with treatment. I may have contracted Lyme in the South East.

    Pity it wasn´t North London, then they might actually do something about it.

    I just realised that I used to be taken to Richmond park as a child to see the deer.
