Review: 'Through the Shadowlands’ describes Julie Rehmeyer's ME/CFS Odyssey
I should note at the outset that this review is based on an audio version of the galleys and the epilogue from the finished work. Julie Rehmeyer sent me the final version as a PDF, but for some reason my text to voice software (Kurzweil) had issues with it. I understand that it is...

    Ticks, dogs and Lyme disease:

    Interesting item of veterinary research being reported on the BBC today:

    Key messages:

    1 There are ways of protecting dogs from ticks - our Labrador has a regular monthly Frontline tablet:

    2 Check your dog for ticks after it has been in an 'at risk' area - woodland or long grass for example

    3 Don't try to remove ticks on animals using tweezers or other do it yourself methods - use a special tick hook:

    4 Animals can become ill following tick bites - just like humans with Lyme disease

    Just heard this on the radio.......BBC Radio 2 including brief 'interview' with someone who had Lyme.
    EDIT: they will be discussing this on the Jeremy Vine show Radio 2 sometime between 12 and 2.

    It´s always depressing to contrast the matter-of-factness of the veterinary approach to Lyme (or other chronic bacterial infections) with that of doctors. I guess that´s because dogs aren´t very good at politics.
