Kris Kristofferson and Lyme Disease

Interesting story in Rolling Stone about Kris Kristofferson and Lyme disease. His doctors thought he had dementia or Alzheimer's until one of them tested him for Lyme disease early this year, and the test showed positive.  After three weeks of anti-biotics, he was back to his 80-year-old self.  He's even scheduled a few shows this summer with Willie Nelson.  

Since I hunt in Wisconsin, one of the most deer tick infested places in the U.S., and live in the county in Wisconsin which in 2015 recorded the most confirmed cases of Lyme (558), I've suggested to my wife that she first test me for the disease if it seems like I'm losing my mind.  That could get expensive.
