    Yea I got bit by a tic. Went to the Doctor after running fever for two days
    and because I broke out with about 20 red- spots on my skin plus the
    skin feeling like its burning, short breaths , weakness , and migraines.

    Today is day 14 in my recovery, I had to go to the doctor on the
    9th night and get fluids through a drip bag.

    I felt great today so im optimistic as ever that im in full recovery
    from this bacterial infection-

    My secret in the tool bag will be Optimism, Hope -Love _ Faith

    I've practiced other tools here in this world of environmental issues

    I don't think we should be in fear of the consequences that might
    come from these environmental toxins
    Even though it takes a lot of mindfulness too
    accept that peace and harmony healing at its roots

    If I didn't know TMS healing knowledge and how to use it
    I would have had a lot harder time recovering.
    Im in complete recovery- I can feel it in my heart.
    I could have been really worse for bare,

    I am on antibiotics and plenty of fluids- complete calmness too
    as this is a bacterim that makes your nerves over sensitized to stress too.

    I know that this combo of calmness in the eye of the storm
    and just watching comedy's and being thankful just cause
    has been the turn around in the battle.

    Thanks to all the support
    I feel to be well within the week.

    God Bless...

    We are part of the world and sometimes it literally bites us.
    It happens and with good heart we heal.
    Easy to forget and convenient to ignore our vulnerabilities but invincibility and physical immortality are the stuff of Hollywood. Us folk on the ground deal in the business and goodness of what is.
    You just know what a fine nurse I'd be but cos I can't be there to do that I give you my loving prayers.
    Look after you. And thank you for a powerful reminder that hearts and minds are the real healers.

    Hi, Herbie. It's great to know you're recovering and how you've handled that tic bite,
    putting TMS knowledge to work.

    As the saying goes, "what doesn't kill us makes us stronger."

    You'll be stronger and even more of a healing inspiration than before,
    and that was plenty.

    Now I know what people mean when they something "tic-ed them off!"

    My mother used to say, when anything stressful came into our house and lives,
    "This too shall pass."

    It always did. Then we didn't even remember what stressed us out.

    I guess it's a matter of not letting what's going on in the present get us down.

    SO glad you're on the upswing now! Spiders and snakes don't faze me, but ticks do. I had a friend who was a bodybuilder. He wound up in the Med. Ctr and nearly died from what the MDs finally determined was Rocky Mtn Spotted Fever WITHOUT the spots. He eventually recovered, but it took a great toll.
    Herbie, I'm thrilled that your antibiotics did the trick.

    stronger by the day,
    God Bless....

    Man, I don't know what is going on in the environment to cause these extreme reactions to tic bites but it is reassuring to hear that we can recover from any symptoms they cause. Eric, it's great that you have so many tools now to see these symptoms off. I am so pleased to hear you have healed now.
