  • NWS - ZT091813 - Ansatz Disease takes toll on salon owner Brooke Ferrin Klekovski's life has been a nightmare for the past five years. The Ansatz Hair Salon owner and Zionsville resident wakes up every day with a new pain and can't shake the voices she hears inside her head. "I have three people in my head that randomly speak to me," Klekovski said. "I hear random comments like 'Do you see the shoes that she's wearing?' all the time." Klekovski suffers from Lyme disease, a disease caused by the bite of certain infected ticks. Klekovski contracted the disease after a family vacation in Georgia with her husband, Martin, and son, Carter. Kimberly Lentz, a Zionsville-based doctor who specializes in Lyme disease and other tick-borne illnesses, said Lyme disease is a growing problem in the United States. "The (Center for Disease Control and Prevention) just released new preliminary numbers about the number of cases," she said. "They always said there was about 30,000 cases per year, and now they just projected at least 300,000 new cases per year. That is preliminary data, and I suspect the number may be higher than that. It seems to be a huge, growing problem in America, just with the way we've expanded out from the city. Everyone has deer and rodents in their backyard now." Lentz said Lyme disease can be very tough to diagnose because ticks are so small and people may not realize they have a tick on them. Klekovski was diagnosed with Lyme disease 45 days after she returned from Georgia.
