I knew it! I knew it all along. I knew there was something wrong with me, but no one believed me. My name is Lindsey Collins and I have Lyme disease.
Two years ago, I went to Camp Fuller; it is a sleep-away camp in Rhode Island that I attended for three years. There is nothing I love more than sailing on the pond, hanging out with friends and being surrounded by nature. One day in the dining hall, they made an announcement saying, “If you find a tick on you do not panic, report to nurse immediately! Whatever you do, don’t try removing it by yourself”. I would check myself every day and I kept telling myself that I was lucky because I did not find any ticks or marks on me; well, at least I didn’t until I got home.
