You know what? You are absolutely right and I feel rather sheepish. baaaaa I didn't go and read the Wiki article and just went by the quoted part
you included in your post. For that, I apologize. I've been lurking around this forum long enough to know better.
I did go and read it after your post. I was glad to see that the CDC had done an investigation of this condition, but had one of those "hmmm"
moments when I read that after the first year (2007-2008), they called upon the U.S. Armed Forces Institute of Pathology......to conduct 'immediate'
and 'rigorous' research...then it took another 4 years for them to come out with, "Nope. Not an infectious disease." (2012)
I don't trust the government OR doctors, in general, any farther than I can pick them up and throw them.
That being said, I'm not a "believe
everything I hear or read" kind of conspiracy theorist, either. I like to look at ALL evidence myself and try to come to my own conclusions.
This one does seem to point to the delusional parasitosis diagnosis, but then again, there have been many conditions and diseases that they blamed on
lies or hysteria until science finally caught up with whatever was causing them and said "Oops! I guess it IS real." I have personal experience with
that bunch of doodoo (hence, my general distrust of doctors lol). And, no, mine wasn't a "mystery illness" with an iffy diagnosis - mine was a
genetic mutation that had been there all along and was easily seen once genetic testing was done, but not one of dozens of doctors over a period of
about 30 years (!) cared enough or believed me enough to actually test for it!! grrrrr Now we have at least 5 other family members with it who could
have been spared years of pain had someone taken me seriously when I was young. /rant
I wanted to look at the CDC's investigation and results, so I did a quick google search and found this
. It has Dr. Randy Wymore saying, "while
the study doesn’t offer much hope for those suffering, it did not exactly shut the door all together... Morgellons is real...We know it’s
real...If this was a delusional disorder and their study proved that, they would’ve said it." - which I think is a good point.
I haven't looked any further into this. As I said, I haven't studied a great deal about Morgellons and don't really care (as it doesn't affect
me). I just read your quote and was confused as to how that backed up your point. Now I get it.
I still feel that there is probably more than meets the eye with Morgellons. Maybe one day we'll know for sure.
On Topic: It's not just McDonald's, folks. This kind of crap is found in probably every restaurant out there, fast-food or not. Eat at home whenever
you can. I still eat out sometimes, but I have to completely block this kind of stuff from my mind while trying to eat...and I've been known to stop
mid-meal and be done because of something as odd as a weird texture to the stuff I'm eating. It all of a sudden reminds me and I have to stop or get
sick to my stomach! Blech!!!
P.S. GR1ill3d - I may not be lovin' it at McDonald's, but I'm lovin' your signature!!!
