“I couldn’t concentrate, I couldn’t screw a lid on top of a bottle, I couldn’t walk, I’d lost all ability to balance.”

Bit by a tick near Fishing Lake in June 2009, Tera Hunter said she was infected with Lyme disease — an affliction she’s had to live with ever since.

When she began to notice symptoms, she was pregnant with her son Harrison. When she visited a hospital, staff were unable to determine what was causing her physical and thinking problems, she said.

“At one point, they thought I had MS, so I did MRIs and CT scans and multiple blood tests.”
