So I probably panic too much, but as I talked to my girlfriend on the phone tonight she mentioned that she got bitten by a tick. Now here in the UK ticks are irritating, but Jenn is playing on a girlscout camp in New York State, and in America ticks apparently carry Lyme Disease. Now I thought that Lyme was a type of tree, but apparently it also is the name of an illness that is really horrible .
Now I get to sit here thousands of miles away worrying and reading on the internet about the symptoms of the damn thing.
I feel so useless because there is nothing I can do.
I guess this kind of thing is normal for those people who live in countries with unsafe wildlife, (round here you only have to worry about the people) but excuse me while I go and quietly work myself into a panic in a corner now.
As if I didn’t have enought to worry about she also told me about the rattlesnakes thet were around the camp, and how if a bat gets into the cabin they have to be treated for rabies. This does not help me to not worry.
On Preview this post seems so mundane and pointless to everyone else that I wonder why I am going to post it, but despite the risk to the hamsters, this seems like as good a place as any to randomly babble.
