This is an article I found just browsing around the net..apparently none is sure the disease is real or if its just the imagination of the person affected..however there have been many reports of this disease and the Dr's are unable to find the reason or cause of it. Has anyone else seen anything like this or have any thoughts?

this is fron and Houston news..

A federal health agency on Wednesday launched a study into an unexplained skin disorder that causes a crawling sensation and lesions that won't heal, the first attempt to determine whether Morgellons is a legitimate illness or caused by the patient's imagination.

Dr. Michele Pearson, principal investigator for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, would not go so far as to acknowledge that the illness is real, but said the agency has received enough inquiries about it during the past year that it deserves to be considered, and hopefully explained.

"I'm not so concerned with the label," Pearson said. "Clearly the suffering that these patients are experiencing is real."

Many families in Houston are self-diagnosed with the condition, making the area a Morgellons hot spot, according to the Morgellons Research Foundation, a nonprofit group that has become the primary source of information about the disorder.

People who report suffering from the condition identify a range of symptoms including crawling, biting and stinging sensations and so-called fibers or black specks that protrude from skin lesions. Some also suffer from fatigue, mental confusion and joint pain.

But there's skepticism in the medical community about whether the illness actually exists. Many doctors believe patients that show those symptoms suffer from delusional parasitosis, a psychotic illness that causes the patient to believe they are infected with parasites.

More than 11,000 families have contacted the foundation indicating they believe they have the illness. About 800 of those are from Texas, with most clustered around Houston, San Antonio and Dallas.

"What needs to be done ultimately and quickly is that the cause of this illness needs to be identified," said Mary Leitao, a biologist who gave the disorder its name and founded the foundation in 2002 after her 2-year-old son began showing symptoms. "It's frustrating to have a sick child and not be able to get help, to have to find your own answers, fight through a system, and then to be treated in such a cruel way by certain groups that just cannot accept that this is real."

The agency's study, in conjunction with Kaiser Permanente, a health care group in northern California, is intended to gather information about the illness, including common symptoms, possible causes and risk factors shared by people who say they suffer from it. Researchers will look only at patients in northern California, the state with the highest number of self-reported cases.

So little is known about the illness that the Houston Chronicle could not locate a local doctor who could talk knowledgeably about it.

Pearson said there's no evidence that Morgellons (pronounced mor-GELL-uns) is contagious, but patients frequently report their family members also show symptoms.

The illness has turned Waco resident Pam Stelk's life upside down. She began to show symptoms about a year ago, and since then has had to quit her job and move away from her family because of the painful bites on her skin and other symptoms.

"To me it's just the most terrible thing that I can think of that I could have," said Stelk, a 53-year-old who worked as a drug counselor. "You just hate the thought of them things munching on you."

When she picks the black specks — which she believes are living — out of her skin lesions, the stinging sensation subsides, she said. But doctor after doctor will not believe her story. They tell her she's crazy, she said, fighting back tears.

"It's bad enough that you have it," she said. "It's even worse that the medical community does not know or will not acknowledge that it's a possibility."

What leads you to believe or even question that it may be of alien origin?

well for one the recent UFO sightings in Tx..and just the fact that there have been many sightings down there over the years..also there have been many alien abductions in Texas as well. So perhaps this is an outbreak or the results of alien experiments on humans..I mean If you read the symptoms of the disease, they are very strange and otherworldy..I am only saying this as conjecture..Ive not one shred of actual evidence..but I cant think of anything else that would make such symptoms.

There's mention of this with the Starchild skull;
but according to comparisons, they aren't as chemically similar or even from the same location. Unfortunately there weren't any skin samples form the starchild to look at either.

Since Rense claims it's mostly made of sulfer, I can only guess that's a sulfer based life form which might also be of some type of extraterrestrial origin or deep ocean sulfer vents etc.

It's interesting about the similarity to nano fiber technology which some have claimed was inside the Kecksburg UFO acorn and found around the crash site. I wouldn't doubt a crashed UFO or one shot down might have some types of this technology.

I wouldn't doubt that there's some way of controling it with some type of frequency waves. It's interesting that it doesn't seem to survive outside the body, but it could also be dormant in that stage also.

It's also interesting that it doesn't always look the same either. I wonder if this could have also plagued the dinosaurs and has been frozen in the glaciers until they melted.I would think if this was the case, that they would have found evidence with the tissue of the baby mamouth and that scientist working with these tissues may have also become infected.

If you recall, the one asteroid strike or explosion was in a sulfer deposit, and for all we know, it was a UFO or probe that crashed. Some may speculate it was intentionally done also, in order to colonize the planet or kill off genetically altered species that were out of control. Without knowing for sure we are just speculating though. But it would seem that there's strong evidence to support long term visitations.

I've been wondering if perhaps these conditions are caused by the great amount of plastics that we eat, breathe, and slather all over ourselves every moment of our lives today. Morgellon's might be hte body trying to excrete these synthetics unsuccessfully.

Last I read the best guess at the cause of Morgellon's was agrobacterium tumefaciens, a pathogenic bacteria that causes plant cells to grow galls kind of like cancer. It's unique because it's the only known prokaryote that can transmit a plasmid to eukaryotic cells.

The bacteria's DNA was found in several test samples of Morgellon's disease, so it's very possible.

[yvid][yvids]w0wNafrnlow[/yvid] This is a respond to Morgellons. This video was originally about the Chupacabra, the external creation that resembles a T-Rex. It is a creation of the very colorful beings inside. They existed inside using their creation for shelter and transportation and as a food gathering device. They are symbiotes, they live within other creatures and the alterations they make in the host body is Morgellons. Morgellons is not a new disease, it is the disease of the Pharoahs, Thutmoses I, II, III, Hatshepsut's mummies all bear the imprint. Morgellons is not a disease, it is an invasion of your body by an intelligent alien species. They retain the ability to enter and leave the infested body at will. I have Morgellon's, but in my case it is a true symbiotic relationship. They keep me alive and i act as their voice. Those who suffer from Morgellons have had a close encounter with this alien species and then unknowingly spread it to all they have come in contact with. Save your money, there is no effective treatment and Doctors are happy in their ignorance.

Wait wait... what?

You are in a symbiotic relationship with an Alien disease and it is telling you to post as such on this forum?

I'm in no way trying to insult you, but i have two questions for you:

1) Can you prove any of your last post?

2) Do you currently suffer from, or have a history of, mental illness?
