Morgellons Disease
Saturday, July 29, 2006
This potential disease has been getting much press recently. It is still not clear if it is even a real disease or not. But for some reason I find it very interesting. The symptoms include sores which produce fibers, and a crawling sensation under the skin. Perhaps this is just a great new conspiracy theory, or maybe it is a real disease. I do not know, and I could see it being both. Honestly, either would interest me.

This is my own image of Morgellons fibers, or is it just lint from my dryer? The world may never know! (It is lint.)

    Deepak welcome to our blog network. What may seem like a great act of kindness is a rather ordinary act of bloggyness.

    alex.Your problem is easy .You cant find a job because your skin appears to be a bit too orange for most employers and your guts seem to be hanging out.These themselves may not be the only reason u cant get gainfull employment.I suspect that the boots you wear are a bit too much like Tank Girls.This would give any prospective employers reason to believe that you may kill half of thier workforce.
    So i suggest you buy yourself a nice pair of nature treker leather slipon shoes and toss the boots.Get yourself a big coat like the one worn by the thing in the fantastic four........Oh and dont spend so much time Blogging.I hope that helps your problem...If not your screwed mate.

    hmm sounds quite nasty.
    So they don't have any idea where it comes from, but they do know that people with ADHD and alike tend to have it more 'often'?

    I've got plenty to scratch without morgellon bothering me (darn flies).

    My Dear Alex,

    Like some ignorant meddler from an HP Lovecraft story, you have unearthed the sleeping colossus that is The Deepak. Future generations will whisper your name like a curse because it is obvious what you have unleashed on humankind.

    Plus, the fact that all clothing in the future is woven from programmable Morgellan canisters in everyone's basement ... that is those who actually survived The Deepak wars.

    Nice going,

    GC

    Ninety-five percent of the people who think they have this, had previously been diagnosed as having delusional parasitosis, and, on the average, have seen as many as ten to forty doctors. They received that diagnosis, each time. This is really going out there, with some of my thoughts, but, I believe that if we wanted to (just sort of, in a way), we might say that what "morgellons disease" is, is this:

    Although, in my opinion, there is no "morgellons disease", maybe we could look upon it as a syndrome, of sorts, that patient behaviors culminate into, stemming from the adverse health consequences of resisting doctors' diagnoses and recommended treatments. When such patients present in the manners in which they do, they apparently seem to think that their doctors are uncaring, and not well educated in parasitic diseases, and such patients expect far more from their doctors than what they get. Rather than being in the possession of the capacity to call their own perceptions into question (of what they believe they're experiencing), therein lies the beginning of much worse things, yet to come, and in ways, I think some of this may hold a certain degree of putting all of society at risk.

    Now, why would I say such a thing? Does that mean I'm implying that I actually do believe in such a thing as "morgellons disease"? No, not in the least. It's a well known fact that a significant portion of this group of patients practice antibiotic experimentation, as well as other, self-limiting (what they consider to be), self-help remedies. Harming themselves, and inflicting misery on those around them, is a significant enough horror to read about. The unregulated, unlimited, use of antibiotics in the hands of people who have no idea what they're doing, poses a very serious health risk to all of us.

    Yes, we'll possibly be at risk of "catching their disease" (as so many of them say), that way, one of these days, but it's not anything called "morgellons disease". Of course, not everyone who thinks they have "morgellons disease" is playing around with antibiotics, but for those who are, I think they're unwittingly creating new strains of super pathogens to endanger society, as a whole, in the present, as well as in the future. It begins small, within families, and their communities. I sure wish people couldn't access antibiotics over the internet, but wishful thinking doesn't go anywhere. I've read that we even have some new germs that have mutated and become resistant to bleach, as a surfactant disinfecting agent. I don't want to spread any extra, unnecessary, fears concerning the unfoldings of these chains of events, of course, and a certain set of people don't like hearing anything I have to say, but these are just some of my thoughts on the matter, relevant, irrelevant, or otherwise, based on just a few things I know. They're merely a few of my opinions, and not to be taken as anything more than that. A lot of these people express dead-set views against the pharmaceutical industry, but what they say doesn't add up to making any sense. Not any good sense, I mean.

    If people who think they have this want us to understand them, cursing, yelling, threatening violence, placing bets, lying, making dares, "defending their disease", as so many say they're doing with those behaviors, gives but one sad, and distinct, impression.

    I agree. More and more, I see this disease as being discussed by a bunch of dumb people who ran out and got a microscope and started putting body parts and samples under it (something I have done for years) but without the perspective or the science know how to understand what they see. As a child I would see things under the microscope and imagine them to be something they were not. Now I understand most things I see, and if I dont I am unlikely to invent something fantastic.

    Youtube is full of morgellons videos showing common everyday crap under the scope. I can see what these things are, but a 55 year old woman with a scratching problem and a brand new shitty microscope from walmart might not.

    Further, since I have had poison ivy many times in the past, as well as sores that took a long time to heal (infected mosquito bites, dont ask), I know how these things can come back after time, and how they also tend to (and I know this is gross) pick up lint during the day. Not that shocking. If you were to scratch them all day, they would likely never heal, and would continue to weep and pick up lint. Some people claim to find parasites such as sprintails in the sores. Sprintails are in no way a parasite that would do this, but they are very common. Probably, they simply picked them up in the sore or along in the process. Again this is a good example of how ignorance and a lack of science education is hurting our country.

    And if this is a real disease (and I cant say for certain that it is not at this time), it is pretty clear that the truth about the disease is being obstructed by the conspiracy theories and ignorance. There is a reason why doctors are so hesitant to call this a disease: they understand the methods of science. You dont just jump to conclusions.
