    Mrs MiA got lyme disease. When did we notice it? 12/29/03 in Miami. She was super tired. Worn down, and partying with everyone. Tough girl.

    Getting Lyme disease isn’t that big of a deal. Not treating it is. Come to find out there is a plausible connection between lyme disease and hyopthyroidism (which she later had).

    Good vibes Palmer. If you know the tick, that’s about 99.9% of it. Means it hasn’t been manifesting for months.

  2. MiA Says:

    I really want to strike that getting lyme disease isn’t that big of a deal. It is a huge deal. Didn’t mean to make light of it at all. But treatment is the really big deal.

    I just got my first ever case of poison ivy at 35…it’s never ever been a problem. Not a bad case now, but enough to know I’m not completely immune any more. Long socks on the dg course may be in order as the summer progresses.

  4. Phamily Berzerker Says:

    yes, that twist video was soo very nice

  5. Jtran Says:

    fine garret, I’ll get some tix

  6. Multibeast Says:

    I used to get poison ivy every summer at the fam’s cabin in canada. The more you get it the more apt you are to get it in the future. Wear them socks!

  7. snowbank Says:

    I have always been a magnet for poison ivy. I finally found the best treatment for it: hot water!

    When it itches, head to a shower with a masturbation head… I mean shower head. Turn it up as hot as you can stand and spray on the poison ivy. It feels like you are scratching it, but you are not and therefore not spreading it or damaging your skin. The best part is: it will eventually stop itching! Then you are done until the next histamine cycle.

    What is happening is that poison ivy is mostly just there till the histamine cycle starts. Then it is difficult to scratch it enough to get it to stop. The hot water will cause the histamine reaction to run its course (basically the histamine runs out, I think) and stop itching.

    It’s almost worth getting poison ivy to be able to spray hot water on it. The best ‘scratched itch” sensation imaginable.

    This tip comes via Dr Weil. Hmm, where can I find some poison ivy.

  8. garretc Says:

    Good call Jtran, you won’t regret it!

    Plus now I get my commission! I mean… Uh…

  9. snowbank Says:

    Should read ‘detachable shower head’. If you don’t have one, you should. Happy wife, happy life.

  10. plord Says:

    Mr. P keep your wife off the Internet until you get the test results back 🙂 Reading Lyme disease stories on the net will send anyone over the edge.

    Watch the bite spot for a ring; trust the test results; if the kid has weird symptoms 6 or 12 months later, ask for a re-test. My son had two ticks imbedded pretty good last season and there was some heavy freakout, but it turned out fine.

    Lyme definitely a bigger problem in the NE than elsewhere.

  11. Robear Says:

    Yes P, try talking to other parents or doctors. Not the web.

  12. Multibeast Says:

    lulz @ Snowbank.

  13. Type III Jamming Personality Disorder Says:

    I’ve had lyme twice and many friends who have had lyme, rocky mtn. spotted fever, and other tick related maladies. ah, the joys of working at summer camps…

    as mia said, the key is treatment. treated properly (as your doctor is doing preemptively, palmer), it is manageable. left untreated it gets big time problematic. but we don’t need to go there right now.

    @mia never heard the hypothyroidism connection before, but I have it. I have family history of that though so I can’t say that it was connected to my lyme times.

    New Dave’s Picks (7/31/74) is fantastic.

  15. Mr palmer Says:

    Thanks for the great advice. Appreciate it.

    My sister in law’s mom recently got Lyme disease and she hasn’t been the same person. Used to be very active and energetic . Now she has benn incapacitated. Severe migraines, lethargy , etc. she obviously has an extreme case, but it’s the closest example for us, so I’m sure that had exacerbated the fears.

    This poor woman was barely able to see her grandson born. She was so uncomfortable waiting in hospital.

  16. marcoesq Says:

    Afternoon, all. Stayed up until after midnight watching the Caps game on my uncle’s 62″ plasma in Woostah, thing was better than being there live! Kinda nervous bout tonight in Newark, Flyers need to pull it out.

    Fun fact, did ya’ll know that they pulled out a 14min Halley’s in St. Louis from ’09? Giving it a spin now, anyone know if it’s any good?

  17. Robear Says:

    Marco, miner didn’t talk it up much. Maybe that’s why they hold back now?

  18. Type III Jamming Personality Disorder Says:

    I’ll join you on that halley’s marco…

  19. Robear Says:

    Mix tape!

  20. marcoesq Says:

    Most def

  21. Type III Jamming Personality Disorder Says:

    huh. well, the jam started off well enough with trey driving the bus and it sure sounded like it was going somewhere and then right around the 11:15 mark it loses steam and they head for ambient soup before kicking into jim. seems fairly typical for summer 2009.

  22. marcoesq Says:

    Yep, that description is a perfect representation of the Halley’s of Summer 2011 also. They jammed the first one at Bethel, it sounded great and we thought they would bring back jammed Halley’s. But then they all just lose steam throughout the summer and peeter off into something else

  23. butter Says:

    Plord no doubt, stay off the internet for your illnesses

    that shit will kill ya, all the doctors i’ve known advise quiting googling for your symptoms and cures as step numero uno

  24. butter Says:
