By the way, I'm sorry to hear that you haven't been able to get to the bottom of your situation yet, with your mom.
Do I know if you're a hoax? No. Am I going to try and bust your balls and attempt to debunk your story? Ah, no. Is it detrimental to my life if you are lying? No. Therefore, I'll take your word for it and give my best wishes to you and try and help out if possible.
That's how I would deal with ANYONE with this type of story, such as mine. It's calm. It's civil. It's productive. For God's sake you could be telling the truth and something serious has happened to your loved one and need help. The last thing you need is people giving you $hit.
For instance, someone mentioned something about a lady on this website who claims she can talk to aliens. Great! Have fun, tell them I said hi. Good for you. What do I care about?: Can you prove it?
For fun, I would take the time to ask her a few questions and probe around, perhaps even ask her to write the language down, but for God's sake wouldn't start calling her a lying b&tch! That's very unnecessary. Maybe she can talk to aliens, maybe she's mentally ill. I DON'T KNOW - that's the point - you just don't know. If she could prove it, I surely would be interested. Otherwise, there's other things to pay attention to in life.
Okay, so you said that I should have thicker skin with skeptics. That would be necessary for a person who was trying to prove something to a group of people and felt the need for approval and who also had the time to stick around to get sworn at by strangers and given a lot of crap.Thanks, but no thanks.
I would rather deal with professionals who treat me with respect and get the help that is necessary.
I'm not claiming anything. I honestly don't know what this thing is. I claim that it appears odd and that the occurrence of it is *very odd. That's it.
I went to Ufologists because if I went to the police or other doctors they would hold it, give it a look and say, 'um yeah, that looks like brass. BYE'.
When we get the MRI's of her sister, I'm going to compile a whole list of questions to ask them to include in the research if they haven't already thought of it. (The questions that are still floating around in my head which are listed on the blog)
There is still much to be learned about the object still.

With the concentration of arsenic and copper, it appears to have been used for plumbing...and would also explain the violent reactions such as coughing up the chips and related illnesses. Anyone is welcomed to correct me if I'm off.
