Tick season brings vigilance against Lyme

Tick season brings vigilance against Lyme

By PATRICK DEWEY • Special to www.AllOTSEGO.com

What is most astounding about Lyme Disease is that one tick the size of a sesame seed or smaller, according to the CDC, can change someone’s life course.

Cherry Valley resident Tina Leentjes, diagnosed with Lyme Disease in May 2017, went from working five days a week and attending events almost every evening to working part-time and falling asleep
before dinner is finished.

For Brenda Michaels of Cooperstown, symptoms began with knee pain and started a four-year battle that included headaches, fast heartbeat and facial weakness.

The life-changing effects show why awareness of Lyme Disease is critical.
