I live in the Midwest and got it last year playing ball golf. Luckily I caught it early. It's pretty prevalent around here, but I think it's even more so in the Northeast.

I remember reading about how Lymes came about. The whole government outbreak and whatnot. Pretty wild stuff, nothing to take lightly. Knock on wood, I haven't had it.

You know it's spelled L-I-M-E-S, right? Yeah, we got limes in Southern California. Personally, it's not my thing but some people I know garnish Mexican lagers with them.

I live in southern Rhode Island and I don't even know anybody from here who hasn't had it at least once in their life. It's serious business, if it isn't knocked out completely it can cause all sorts of chronic health problems and even kill people.

Nasty Nate is correct: it's Lyme Disease, not Lyme's Disease or lymes disease. It's not named after some guy named Lyme, like the way Parkinson's or Alzheimer's is.
