I GOT RID OF MORGELLONS
I had never heard of this skin condition. I had just got two cats so when I felt something biting me on my legs I thought it was fleas. I would look when I felt the bite, but never saw a flea. I had been so tired lately and my brain was always in a fog. As if I was half asleep all of the time. I slept a lot. My eyes were doing funny things too, like one day they would be blurry, one day worse and one day better.I would hurt too. My joints, bones and muscles. One day I woke up form a 16 hour sleep and I had red bumps all over my chest and stomach. They itched. Later they moved to my breast, underneath and on top. Then they moved to my neck, back, arms, hands then legs.
First these worm looking things would come out of the sores. When I would pull them out of the sore it would leave a brown raised ring around the bump left behind. Sometimes grain or sand looking stuff would come out of them. Then I started seeing these fibers that would be on the sore, and under the skin around it. When I would pull out the fiber, I could feel it coming from deep within my skin. When it would come out, it would bleed a lot. These fibers were blue, red, black and white. Sometimes they would be wrapped tightly around a hair. The hairs looked strange too, like they had a bulb on the end of it.
The sores would look like a sponge on top, with holes in it. I noticed all of this before I ever looked up the symptoms.
I found morgellons and I had all of the symptoms it described. But the delusional part of bugs biting me was only at the start when I thought they were fleas. I started looking at the things that were coming out of my skin with a magnifying glass. One time I pulled this long fiber out and looked at it under a lens. I swear, it looked like it was mad. It was bent over and turned from side to side like it was throwing a fit. (I know this sounds weird, I am not making it up, it is what I saw). Then it looked like it was searching for the sore it came from to go back. I burned it with a lighter. That really freaked me out.
I tried several "cures" for this. I took a bath in alfalfa, borax and bleach. I poured salt and epson and soaked. I used hydrogen peroxide and tea tree oil. (stinks) The last two really did help heal them and took away some of the redness.
The sores would spread and they would always have a little black dot on the edge. The sore would get better slowly after pulling the black dot out. When I would pull the blood scab off, a bunch of little black dots would be in it.
I drew pictures of the things I saw under my skin, and by chance I saw an article on the red tide algee that was on our beaches. It looked just like several of the specimens. So, I got to thinking, what kills the algee? I had a plastic easy set pool from last year and I set it up. I put a lot of the clorine tablets in it. The water was cold, it was in the sun that was hot. I got in the water. I started noticing these white rice looking things that were coming out of the sores. I would pull them out. When I would take my arms out of the water and they would be in the sun with the water drying off off of my arms, I could see them healing right before my eyes. Later when I got out of the pool, and dried off. The redness was going away, the sores were smaller, and the ones that I had pulled the white things out of were healing. After a month of doing this, all but a few stubborn ones were gone. As the sores healed, they would leave a scale on top of dried out skin. I had battled the sores for over a year, it took about six more months for them to heal, and another 6 months to go away.
I started getting a tan, of course, and where the sores were, it left a white spot. Eventually they are starting to get a even tan. The skin left behind looks really nice, even younger.
I do not feel tired all of the time, I do not hurt all of time and my eyes started getting better, At least they stayed the same weakness. My brain is not as foggy anymore either.
Hydrogen peroxide helped with the finale healing, and table salt in my bathtub made it feel better. Also, cold water made it better and less red.
I do not know just what made them heal and go away. But it started getting better with the first time I got in the cold, chlorine water and in the sun. I did have to pull the white things out and the black dots off the sores.
This will sound very strange to the people reading it who have no clue to the symptoms. But if you have them, it maybe comforting to know that someone else has experienced the same thing.
I am now down to two small sores on my arm, because I can't stop picking at them. That was a major help to healing and to stop spreading the sores, once I stopped picking at them. Except for when I was pulling the things out.
Hope this helps someone. I got rid of it, so far, hope you do too.
I did go to the doctor, and just like everybody said, she said I had scabbies, The medicine did not help. I did not have that.
I am now wearing shorts and sleeveless shirts again. I thought my like was ruined completely, now I do not think that anymore.
