Subject: Antenna/Tower work safety - Lyme Disease
While Lyme disease may seem "off topic"... our ham friends need to be
informed about Lyme as it's becoming more and more common and can
totally end one's tower and antenna work.
7 years ago I got Lyme disease and was in complete misery due to
intense headaches, tremendous fatigue, extreme sensitivity to light,
and aches and pains all over. Unfortunately, I had to visit several
different doctors over a 12-month period of time before I got
diagnosed with Lyme. By then, long-term damage had been done to my
joints and central nervous system. Lyme has seriously changed my life
making antenna and tower work which I once loved... now be extremely
difficult. Getting quick treatment for Lyme is very important!
If anyone would like more information about Lyme they are welcome to
contact me direct.
