Did we read the same article?

Morgellons is exactly what many of us have said from day one…
Delusional Parasitosis.
Though it may be a variation of the classic form of the disease.

The study cost nearly $600,000. Its long-awaited results, released Wednesday, conclude that Morgellons exists only in the patients' minds.

They took fibers from 12 people, which were tested at the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology. Nothing unusual there, either. Cotton and nylon, mainly — not some kind of organism wriggling out of a patient's body.

Skin lesions were common, but researchers concluded most of them were from scratching.

"We're not mental health experts," one CDC spokeswoman said.

The reason why the CDC does not want to give it an official designation is just what they said in the last line, they do not deal in mental health issues.

As an ATS Staff Member, I will not moderate in threads such as this where I have participated as a member.

That's definitely debatable. The doctor said he sees skin abnormalities when magnified at 200x and the worst time for the patients are between 1am - 3am when is the peak time for parasitic movement.

Someone delusional would doubtfully know that last fact.
