I hate to sound like such a girl but I get totally grossed out by Ticks! When I see them on me, I shiver with grossness. My dogs constantly have them as I feel we live in the tick capital of VA. I was picking berries (as I do every night) and felt like something was constantly crawling on me. NOT being the responsible adult and "checking myself", I went to bed with this eerie feeling. Upon getting up on Tuesday morning, I decided to check my back as it had a burning sensation. Wouldn't you know it, a TICK. I totally freaked out and grabbed it and yanked it off. It was already attached. I sent him down the sink drain then hopped in the shower. Water hit my back where I ripped off the tick and talk about burns, its like sliding down a razor blade into a pool of alcohol. OMG, I wanted to scream. I get out of the shower and the tick had managed to crawl back up into the sink bowl! The tick that won't die!
I worked all day then got home to show my husband my mark. OMG, it is gross! The spot is inflamed with a huge red ring around it . . Great! I don't think it was a deer tick but I guess I will have to wait and see. JD asked me what the tick looked like and I said, UH gross, he was black, creepy and gross! I DONT KNOW.
Just my luck! I guess thats what I get for constantly going into the woods for those dang berries~
