Life is a bowl of limes.
While visiting the Indianapolis Zoo, I took a break to have some lunch and a cold drink. Seated at the next table, was a man wearing a Purdue University uniform with the words entomology department embroidered on the shoulder. I couldn't resist starting a conversation with him about ticks and Lyme disease. He said that he doesn't personally research tick born illness, but some of his colleagues are currently researching ticks. I couldn't help mention to him that it took me 2 years to get a diagnosis because doctors simply are uneducated about Lyme disease here in Indiana. He agreed that it is a big problem.
As soon as I got home from the zoo, I searched for any information about Purdue and Lyme disease. I did find something, so here is a link:
I am grateful that Purdue has taken up the cause for more Lyme disease research.
