My Year Long Journey
« on: December 31, 2017, 07:21:48 PM »
Gents
As some of you may have noticed i have not been particularly active on the site of late. This was due to a long year of battling a stupid disease and how it affected my body.
About a year ago i started to notice i had a lack of energy and strength. As the months moved on i started to gain weight and continued to battle fatigue.
My golf game went totally down the tubes. I was unable to finish a full round. I normally walk and carry my bag. This became impossible. My 7 iron went from 165yards down to 140yards on average and my SS went from high 90s to mid 80s.
I saw my physcian and he diaganosied me with Lime Disease. This is a tick borne disease that i picked up playing golf.
After the diagnosis i went on the proper meds and with a strict diet and even stricter workout schedule, i lost the extra weight and my energy level came back
Now nearly 12 months later i am back playing golf at my usual level and loving every moment of it. My SS is over 100mph  and the ball is going where i want it to.
This posting is  for all of those of you who live in a lime disease state. Please wear bug spray and check yourself after a round of golf.

Wow, lime d is no joke, have a relative battling it now...so glad you have your health and game back!  I take my health for granted, perhaps I should quit smoking, start walking and stop eating whole pints of Ben and jerry 'S as a snack...

Interesting that most cases in the US occur in the New England and Great Lakes regions. If I ever travel there and play golf, I'll be sure to wear pants and/or apply DEET.

Glad to hear you're doing well, Ash!

I wear pants whenever I play, even in the dead of summer. The image of a tick buried in my leg (thankfully, not a deer tick) on the course when I was a teenager is all too vivid.  Sunscreen...now that advice I really need to heed.

Guys
Thanks for the kind words.
I learned the hard way that bug spray while playing golf in New England is a must.
