Can you be exposed to Lyme disease and not have it?

Can you have Lyme disease without any symptoms? I had blood work that showed I have Lyme but I dont have any symptoms. If a person doesnt have signs or symptoms of Lyme disease, then the person does not have Lyme disease as the definition of disease requires symptoms.

Are there other ways to get Lyme disease?

Are there other ways to get Lyme disease? There is no evidence that Lyme disease is transmitted from person-to-person. For example, a person cannot get infected from touching, kissing, or having sex with a person who has Lyme disease. Untreated Lyme disease during pregnancy can lead to infection of the placenta.
