Dear Gerry,

I would take the antibiotic--not worth the risk otherwise. A friend of mine
developed all the worst symptoms, has permanent damage, had to have a
hysterectomy, and is now on antibiotics for life. As I undertsand it, the tick
carries a spirochete, and some of the damage this can do in the bloodstream is
not unlike that of certain venereal diseases, e.g., damage to reproductive
organs, nerve damage, even certain psychoses.
