  • I was bitten by a tick 40 years ago and was never treated until about three years ago. I have so many symptoms that it would take up all my space to write them. I thought I was loosing my mind because in my area no one talks about RMSF. I am so glad I'm not alone in this. I have suffered so long with this thinking that I should keep it to myself so my family would'nt think I was crazy but thank God for this site. Now I can talk to people who are going through what I am. God Bless us all.
