My mum has been suffering from delusional parasitosis for over 2 years now. All I can say for certain
is that I KNOW it to be delusional! For a
start it doesn’t infect anyone but her, is affected by stress, and not doing much on certain days.
Before it became apparent that what causes her to scratch herself can’t possibly exist, I did feel extra itchy myself,
and was worried that I might have caught the mite from her. But apparently it’s normal that if you tell someone there are fleas in a room, for them
Either there really is some bug that’s crawled out of a government lab, Or: whoever has written your Morgellons Disease article, has just succeeded
in leaving this world a worse place for their existence, than without it. Because when a person has delusional parasitosis they try to convince
themselves that what they have is real. In my mums case she acquired certain symptoms from the medical literature I once helped her research out
And obviously anybody suffering from some kind of madness is going to be susceptible to ideas that say there is nothing wrong.
Anyway after two years of a mite that infects nobody, my mum still hasn’t quite reached the stage of accepting what she has is nuts, if she saw this
article the problem would jump from “scabies” to Morrons disease (I kid you not).
But the weirdest thing is the mysterious appearance of fluffy, white cotton balls that form on the surface and colored threads that seem to
grow from inside the skin. The threads or filaments are what brings most victims to their physician. After weeks of observing and collecting these
threads, patients often bring them to their physician in matchboxes, plastic bags or jars.
The writer is really arrogant not to consider the possibility that when patients find bits of fabric in their skin, it’s because hairs frequently
drop of things like: cloths, carpet, bed sheets. When people are scratching at pains (real only to them) then you’ve regularly damaged skin, and
sometimes fabric gets incorporated into the damaged scab.
