Digg dug it

Digg has a story

Digg visitors: I'd start with these:


But there's lots more here.

Thank you, .and you need a great big ol' hug, Margellons! God bless you.

I was sick a few years ago, but I wasn't diagnosed with DOP. I went through a wild time for a couple of months, due to some serious health problems.

I thank God that I never heard of any such stupid thing as "morgellons disease" or unidentified skin parasites, back when I was ill. If I had, that would have probably fueled some of the same terrible beliefs that it has for so many people that genuinely think that there is such a thing as morgellons.

That has exacerbated such a widespread panic in people, who already have enough things going on to concern themselves with, and it is the direct cause of far too many of them not moving into the right directions for themselves.

I think it's a crime and the most appalling perversion of reality that I've ever witnessed.

I would like to thank Margellons for developing this blog. Something positive like this had to be developed to counter the hysteria and suffering the Morgellons believers are causing. The amazing reaction to the Digg posting shows how so many gullible people can be alarmed and affected by this "perversion". Thanks to smilykins too for calling a spade a spade, and noticing the elephant in the living room. And kudos to tallcotton for offering some common sense to this issue. Keep on keepin' on.

I fully expect Morgellons to be cured just as soon as we can develop a strong enough placebo.

At 11:15 AM, Anonymous Frank said...

I just heard there's a cure!

Seriously, I just picked up a radio broadcast on my teeth saying there's a cure now.

So your purpose for these blogs to get "hugs" some "God bless yous" and some "thanks for this blog?" Because you can't find anything else substantial to do with your miserable life? And then you partakers...are you just trying to fit in by feeding the alter ego? Sick people...and you call us sick. Beam me up Lucy...there aren't any parasites in the clean old sanitary US of A...oh, no...not me, not here. Ha, ha, you guys are still making me laugh. Enjoy a nice med-rare, parasite ridden steak dinner would ya!? And we wonder why so many Americans are sick and diseased...because we are in denial...or ya'll are in denial.

First you make a false statement, then you attempt to back it up with nonsense. No one said that there aren't parasites in the US. Parasites have nothing to do with Morgellons though, except in the minds of the Morgellons cult members.

YOu mean those groups in Utah and Arizona that have multiple wives?

Oh and recently caught for child molesting while married to 15 women. Did you see that on the news 2 weeks ago?

Dont preach about cults.

YOu christians shove your foot in mouth everytime you point a finger.

At 5:07 PM, Blogger Margellons said...

Again Ms Anon has demonstrated one of the fallacies that permeate Morgellons: tarring with the same brush - forming a theory based on Anecdotal Evidence

At 10:47 PM, Blogger Tall Cotton said...

Yes, cult. The Morgellons movement is a cult, and it was started by a woman named Mary Leitao. Those are fact's, like it or not. Lymebusters is one of the main branches of that cult, and it's obvious that many of its users are psychotic. Now, anonymous, whether or not you like for me to make that assesment, I could give a shit less.

When the shoe fits, just wear the darned thing and don't try saying it doesn't fit. Unless, of course, you're brainwashed into thinking it doesn't fit, when it's obvious to everyone else that it does.

here is the debate. copied from

the point is that the medical community was once looked upon as a social service. Now the only motivation is profit.

At 8:02 AM, Margellons said...

There are 500,000 doctors in the US. Surely some of them care about other people. What about when their relatives get sick? What about pro bono work? Is it all part of a conspiracy to make money from Morgellons?

At 4:25 PM, southcity said...

there is no conspiracy. The facts are right in front of you to look at. Vioxx, lipitor etc etc. unless you are a relative or friend I guarantee you will not recieve more than 10 to 20 minutes (at most) with any physician per visit, UNLESS you are diagnosed with an illness that is a proven profit generator. ie cancer, heart problems and other operable ailments. otherwise you are in or you are out or shuffled to other specialists for testing etc. They have an incredibly high workload just like any other profession and as in any industry, time efficiency is second only to the focus on profitability, hence the reason for the medical world being ranked so high in the mortality index. Don't get me wrong, there are some very good doctors out there that do care about an individual, but they are all faced with time restraints per client. Now if you are unlucky enough to be uninsured.... Thats another ball game entirely.

At 4:28 PM, southcity said...

by the way, Why are you not allowed to ask questions and who made that rule? seems incredibly stupid if in fact you are trying to give an objective view on any issue, let alone one of such importance. It appears you have shown yourselves to be completely closed to discussion and indeed do have an agenda other than what you have stated.

At 5:29 PM, Margellons said...

Smileykins was joking about the "don't ask questions" thing. I think she was alluding to the uncritical atmosphere of forums such as Lymebusters - where hard questions are ridiculed or deleted.

At 5:42 PM, Margellons said...

You say there is no conspiracy. But they you imply that the doctors know what Morgellons is, but they know that the treatment will not make the pharmacuticle companies prifits bigger, so they ignore the suffering of their patients.

What exactly is the doctor getting out of this arrangement? The doctor is paid by the insurance company. How does the doctor benefit from this arrangement?

At 9:47 PM, southcity said...

sorry for the confusion. The doctors dont know what this is, they are only now starting to notice the number of people showing these symptoms which in the past have been textbook DOP. This is where the problem has been. two minutes with them and they send you on your way and get to the next patient. case closed. The number of people reporting this are now beginning to stir an interest by these physicians and from now on this issue will continue to gain importance and priority. What I have claimed is that this is a product of experimental microbiology loose in public space and yes there are some who are very much so aware of this and will defend the issue simply because of possible effect it may have on the biotech fields as a whole as well as global economy. This is not a small issue. I have been told the release of this thing appears to have been accidental, however, the politics involved with such a disclosure and said ramifications have allowed a situation where this most likely will become a huge cash cow for the R&D sectors as well as big pharma. With this in mind it is easy to imagine this things spread being "nurtured" along to those ends. But this is simply speculation.

Much needs to be discovered and disclosed for sure, and all information gathered by those that made the video have not yet been made public but certainly will be in time.

On a personal note, I read your biography and I am glad to know that you have your addiction under control and what you had thought to be morgellons was in fact related to the meth. I can tell you that this illness(morgellons) is like no other before seen and if you do become infected there is absolutely no way to mistake it for anything else. Its bad and it is spreading with many of those infected asymptomatic at this time. I believe that with time, it will be shown that what we are seeing now is simply the tip of the iceburg, and I have never wanted to be wrong quite this badly.

At 10:02 PM, Margellons said...

I don't have a biography. Who are you referring to?

At 10:51 PM, southcity said...

sorry, i had you confused with someone going by the name tall cotton.

"My name is Tall Cotton, and Smileykins is my future bride. She's very beautiful, and I'm very proud of her. She's been on a long and painful path, but she's getting stronger every day. While she was working to restore her own health, she helped me to restore mine. I am an ex-methamphetamine addict. I am also an ex-morgie."
