Morgellons Fiber Photo Galleries

There are a surprising number of Morgellons photos on the web. There seem to be a few basic types. Here's a few, who knows, maybe someone here is actually infected with something?

Morgellons.org - Images page
http://morgellons.org/images.html
Scabs and lesion scraping with cloth fibers (probably cotton) embedded in them. Two stained photos of paper fibers. Some SEM photos of slightly crusted skin with a few fibers seming to poke through, probably vellus hairs and stray paper fibers.

Ron Wells - Critter

Several close-ups of a largish sebum plug (hardened zit or blackhead), from his nose.

Ant Guy - Photos

A mixed bag - some poor quality microscop pictures of nothing. Some hairs and fibers (described as filaria - parasitic baby worms). Scabs. "Amber fluid" (sebum). Fungal toenails.

I would like to thank you for giving our disease more publicity, even though that was not your intent. However,I would like to request that in the future, you get your facts straight. I'm not sure how many of the others' photos were misrepresented but I have never identified any of mine as being of filarial, parasitic baby worms, or even fungal (TOEnail, not townail)in nature.

I might add that while I am honest about this disease with every FIBER of my being, it's a shame that you can say what you want about us without verifiable proof. No matter......I am not angry and actually hope that you never will be in a position where you have to explain the horrible aspects of this disease. I hope that you never have to see and feel and experience the horrifying symptoms that we all have.

The truth will prevail and I plan to check back here intermittently to see when you do post your retraction......I suspect it won't be long, unfortunately for you.

Best regards from LymeBusters,
Patti

Sorry Pattie, the filaria description was from Orion's album, not yours - I'd just used a link to all five Lymebuster albums, and I'd though it was yours. My mistake. I'll edit the entry to fix this.

Thank you for your consideration of my response and the subsequent correction. It wasn't that big of a deal except that nobody has ever really identified these specimens and I didn't want readers who do not know me to think I had.

I also appreciate that you are exposing those who really are preying on many of us who suffer from this horrible condition. Plus, you don't outright disbelieve us without attaching an explanation of why you think this is happening to us.....most people don't even afford us the time to try and identify what is causing this, so this sets you apart from the others right off. Until you have experienced this yourself, however, you probably won't be believing us anytime soon. This is okay.....we're used to it and I myself was a non-believer until there were no more explanations left to blame it on.

I will tell you what I wrote on our forum not so long ago: "We are not a bunch of vagrants or drug users with low IQs and high imaginations, we all are very bright people who once held respectful jobs and lived honorable lives. We had families and friends and futures before this but now, most of us have lost it all including our savings, our homes, and even our families. According to the skeptics, we all sit here and imagine this disease, just so we can lose everything and go broke." It doesn't make any sense at all and in my case, I had the job of my dreams with numerous perks and benefits....I hated to leave it but it came to a point where I could no longer function the way I needed to, all day, 24/7. People suffering from Morgellons were drawn together AFTER they became ill.....it's not a case of the blind leading the blind or some type of delusional group mentality. The many photos we have compiled were taken independant of knowing that other photos out there existed identicle to ours.

I know that I am fed up with being sick and if taking an antipsychotic drug (as has been suggested by many) would help, you best believe that I'd be first in line. But it's not that simple and I can see why it's so hard for others to believe this. I know that I could write forever and still not convince those who disbelieve but if you knew many of us personally, you would see that we are as sane as the next guy....we just seem to have contracted this disease that is destroying our lives.

Fibers on and under the skin can be explained but there is no explanation for "our" fibers that move, thousands of which I have seen myself. These fibers are not affected by air conditioning or currents or anything else that would explain them...believe me when I say I've tried to blame it on these things, anything that would just make a little sense. When certain hairs on your head and body move while ones right next to them are dead-still, there simply is no explanation except whatever the "pathogen" is that has invaded our bodies. I could go on and on with horror stories but you've probably already read most of them.

Let me just say that I hope you will continue to monitor the situation of Morgellons and do your best to report the truth as we discover it, not as you believe or disbelieve it to be. And please understand and forgive the angry posts you often see. If you had this disease, I wouldn't have to even mention why they are often so prevalent. We are very lucky to still have our lives and sanity intact throughout all we've experienced (though unfortunately, many poor souls have not been as lucky as we are).

Thank you for allowing me this opportunity to speak.

Speaking of karma, I mean no harm - so I'll be fine.

Excellent work Morgellons, but futile to those who think they have something other than what they've been diagnosed with.

To the contrary..

You are not "all" very bright people. Most of your cult followers are, in fact, hopelessly and very obviously ignorant. "Once" and "had" are key words. You "once" had respectful (sic) jobs and lived honorable lives. If you would have listened to your doctors and followed their suggestions you would still have respectable jobs and still be living honorable lives. You "had" families and friends, "had" futures, "had" savings, and "had" homes. You "had" the job of your dreams, and you "had" numerous perks and benefits. It's true that suffering people were drawn together after becomming ill, but, sadly, it is a case of the blind leading the blind. The photos that that you speak of, that were taken independently, prove two things. You all have the same type of immune system and you all share similar environments. You need to learn how the human immune system functions.

Let's not call Morgellons something it's not. First of all, it's "not" a disease. Some of you are obviously very sick, but there are plenty of sensible explanations to account for what you are experiencing. But you have let your condition become all consuming. Is it any wonder that it has consumed so much of what you "had". If you continue to allow this curse to operate in your life, it will consume you completely. Your lymebusters cult, and all branches of the morgellons cult, are doing much more harm than good. Don't you realize that by drawing people together and entangling them in your web you are setting them up so that what remains of their lives will be destroyed. No, you are not fed up with being sick. You are making a name for yourself just like Mary, from the Morgellons Foundation. You bleed your followers of the sympthy that you require. You live with the delusion that someone "else" has wronged you, and that someone "else" will eventually pay for the injustice. Meanwhile, lives are being destroyed, and the lymebusters message board is helping to destroy them.
