Guest speaker Hugh “Pete” Sides of Williamsport will talk about his experiences with Lyme Disease and two related infections. This presentation was originally scheduled for Nov. 15 but was cancelled due to weather. His Lyme Disease story began in April of 2015 when he found a tick embedded under his left arm. “It looked like a mole and itched,” he said. A MedXPress doctor prescribed an antibiotic for two days, the standard treatment for Lyme disease recommended by the Centers for Disease Control.

Throughout the summer of 2015, Pete had balancing issues and tingling in his feet which he chalked up to being 78 years of age.

Sides will  I give a brief synopsis about what happened to him; the problems associated with Lyme that impacted hia  physical and mental health, the importance of diet and treatment, and understanding the politics of Lyme.Pete and his wife, Carol, will answer questions about their experiences with Lyme, he as the patient and she as the caregiver. Support group meetings are free and open to anyone who lives in Tioga County or surrounding counties who wants to learn more about Lyme and other tick-borne illnesses.
