So, I'm not trying to deny that I'm a tad on the cautious side these days. I can't help myself with all of this USMLE studying.
I get a bug bite and then it's all, "Is this a fever?! Do I have muscle aches?! Nooo!"
I was pretty sure I saw a targetoid rash around said bite from Saturday, but I do spend all day alone with my First Aid. Having hallucinations that lead to false conclusions is pretty normal, I'm sure.
That's why I waited until The Lawyer came over last night, pointed at my leg, and asked,
"Does it look like that's a circular rash? Kind of like a bull's eye?"
And, without responding in the affirmative, he blurted out,
"DO YOU HAVE LYME DISEASE NOW?"
I rest my case.
(As it turns out, I do have a follow-up doctor's appointment for something else today, so I'm going to ask a real doctor, instead of a gullible lawyer getting his information from a panicked medical student.)
