There is different breeds of us. "Good" skeptics will force others to think outside the box, hence they actually increase degrees of freedom. Then you have the debunkers who secure their world by not letting in any light. There are the ones who are spokespersons for this agency or that company whose fealty requires them to lie. So yes, there are many types with different motives.

" . . . 9. Relying ONLY on the blood or urine tests for Lyme
disease is NOT recommended. The current tests have
been found to be inaccurate as a sure indicator that
Lyme disease is present. False negatives are
common and the standard ELISA tests that are normally
performed miss MANY cases of Lyme Disease. See
www.igenex.com for reliable tests. Conns Current
Therapy, 1997, has published liberal guidelines for
the diagnosis and treatment of Lyme disease. Doctors
need to review that information, then listen carefully
to their patients and diagnose clinically by the signs
and symptoms presenting. * Update... Please see Dr.
Joseph Burrascano’s “Advanced Topic’s in Lyme Disease”
which can be found at the following Internet site:
10. If you are bitten by a tick while on the job,
insist that an accident report be filed immediately
and seek treatment! Each time and every time. Do not
wait until you have symptoms! The companies providing
insurance have found many reasons why they should not
be responsible for treating Lyme disease, and not
filing a report on time is a legal issue they may try
to use to deny benefits. The cost of medication often
used for treating chronic Lyme disease can be up to
$2,000.00 per day. If four months of treatment are
ordered, the medication alone could run approximately
$240,000.00. You do not need to be arguing with
insurance companies, hiring attorneys, and delaying
treatments until a court can make a decision because
you didn't take a few minutes to file a report. Keep a
copy of all of your medical records and receipts as
they are generated. . . . "
". . . To Whom It May Concern:
There is something horrible going on in America and I, and thousands of other people, want to know what is causing this.
If you have not heard of the following organizations, please look them up on the Internet:
Morgellons Skin Pathogen Organization
The National Unidentified Skin Parasites Association
Elliot’s Disease at The Comfort Zone
Please also read Dr. Omar Amin’s article entitled, ”Neuro-Cutaneous Syndrome - A New Disorder,” where he describes skin lesions with fibers and even insect parts inside them. Dr. Amin is a noted parasitologist.
Please also look up skin infestations with Rotifera in Romania. You will find studies by an award-winning doctor.
You could also check with The National Institute of Mental Health and see how many new cases of “delusional parasitosis”: they are getting; many people with this disease are wrongly being told that they are delusional.
Fox TV ran a show entitled, “Mystery Disease,” when a New Hampshire doctor got in touch with them about a patient of his who had received detestable medical treatment from other doctors.
You might also check on Oakville, Washington where it supposedly rained jellyfish blown up by the navy for weeks, a substance which contained human DNA.
Are we really expected to believe that thousands of people, in all walks of life, in all parts of the country, are suffering from the same delusion and mutilating their skin into the exact same lesions somehow? Are we to believe that all of these people are finding a way to cause themselves chronic diarrhea, visual deterioration, neurological problems, hair loss and more? Are we to believe that these people, some of whom are medical professionals, legal professionals and scientists themselves, are also doing this to their kids and their pets? Are we to believe that they are also finding a way to infest their own food and water with living organisms that only they know about, as no “expert” or doctor seems to be able to identify them?
I have had this disease for years. So have my cold-blooded and warm-blooded pets; they did not cause this but many of them have died from it. Veterinarians cannot identify it. Reptile vets and experts cannot identify it. . . "

-->" . . . When you have something wrong with you, you go to a doctor and you hope that he will give you a pill or a cream and you will go home, cured.
But that is not the case. You are tired, you do not know why..you can't think straight and you imagine you are getting Alzheimer.
When you have this disease you go to a doctor and he tells you that you are doing this to yourself and that you are crazy. That hurts more than you could ever imagine. Most of us never go to doctors..never did until this struck us down.
You know you are not doing this to yourself but no doctor will listen. You try to prove your sanity by bringing in samples and trying to show the medical community what you are experiencing, even though you know it looks and sounds weird..but they are healers right???? And they look at you like you have three heads and all of them are ugly.
You were never really sick before or had your life depending on them but now you are needy and scared and you need them and they turn on you and call you crazy and tell you that you are making it up and doing it to yourself. "Doctor, do no harm" becomes a joke.
So you feel alone, desperate, and your ego is crushed because you have gross looking lesions that will not heal all over you body in places where people can see them and stare at them and some itch and you can not get any sleep and you notice that people itch when they are near you and being a good person you do not want to infect anyone and you isolate yourself and you give up hugging people.
Most people I talk to are the ones that others had gone to for support. For the first time in their lives they need others and NO ONE is there. It is an awakening experience. It saddens your heart and you plunge into depression. Have I been so blind all my life to think that I had friends and family that actually cared about me?
You decide to be an activist..no more sitting around crying for yourself, so you get a microscope. YOU SEE the fibers in your wounds..you see the little round black poops in your skin and the smokey cylinder things that look like hairs yet are not....YOU SEE THEM AND REJOICE cuz if you see them so will the doctors and that support group you thought you had that just headed for the hills ..now will come back and apologize......you can call them back now cuz you have PROOF!
Yet you can not get anyone to believe. No one will even take a look. No one cares.
You are too tired to work, but have a mortgage to pay. You are depressed because you feel that you are alone in this world and lost in your personal twilight zone and you actually go through the stages of accepting the death of the old you. (Not realizing there is a birth of a stronger you on the horizon.)
This includes anger. You get angry. At everyone and everything! You try to make your world make sense. Since no one will help you, you will help yourself by becoming SMART! You search the Internet day and night for anything that will help you make sense of it all. You build up volumes of information and know more about nothing than anyone else you know.
Then there are the opportunist that say they can help you for thousands of dollars. That they have a cure, that they have a VIDEO, that they know what it is but are not telling you..and you get really mad!
And in my case, you try to warn people of these people. But no one listens..they just pick on you and tell you that you are nasty and cruel and the world gets a bit crazier. These are suppose to be you support group and they have turned on you and all you are doing is trying to help.
Have I died and gone to hell? So you give up trying to help..but it is your nature . . .
