Suffering Since September 2008=Delusional Parasitosis=Wrong!!!

It all started with me seeing some kind of bugs.
They look like dust particles, float up, around in circles, love to attach to my body/mirrors, sometimes white, sometimes clear, can freeze themselves, are all over my vehicles, turn blue/red, look like diamonds in the water, worse with any type of heat, body heat included, my skin around my fingernails is so easy to pull off, and it doesn't hurt. Long sentence, aye;o)
My daughter has some of the same symptoms as myself, but refuses to think much of it. She is losing her hair very much. She has been diagnosed with POTS since August 2008, and I am wondering why she hasn't got more symptoms than myself. Her immune system is not good at all.
Oh ya, black poppy-seed looking things appear, small black "V" shaped wirey looking hair, and hair has been coming out of my mouth the last couple of months.
So, My family took me to the ER, Thanksgiving of 2008, and the ER Doctors diagnosed me with Major Depression. How astute of them considering I was/am on depression, anxiety, and ADD medicines.
Two weeks later, I went to my GP office, only to speak to a nurse for a couple minutes, and Lord, you just had to be there!!! I know He was. ;o)
The nurse, my GP, and another GP all told me I was seeing things, to go to the ER=not, said I was hallucinating, and just told me how dare I waste their time.
They refused to let me leave, ended up having the police come to investigate, and yes I was beyond furious. I had an appointment with my Psych within the hour, the policewoman followed me to my car, and knowing I wasn't under the influence, she let me go.
Well, now I get to my Psych's office, and yes she has been informed. She already knew I thought I had a bug problem, but the evidence I showed her meant zero to her.
Oh ya, strange oblong balls of fuzz everywhere, made of bright colors, and my clothes are full of those dust looking particles. When I put my reading glasses on, they look like white round dots.
Anyway, when I went to see my Psych, I remembered to bring this antique antibiotic that my GP put me on about a month prior. I had 2nd degree burns on my face from my SAD light. Ya, I know, no picking the face while using it.
I had to go back a 2nd time to GP and beg him for medicine, as I knew my face
was infected. He thought I was nuts, even though one cheek was turning green, and I could move the lumps under the skin from place to place.
I fired them all after police incident. GP now, and Psych still don't believe me.
O-kay, back to visit with Psych after police incident. I showed her the bottle of antibiotic I was taking, and boom, within 10 minutes she reads that my ADD medicine and the antibiotic is causing Parasitosis.
Wonderful, all by myself again to deal with this 100% known problem, of some kind. I lied to her about 4 months ago. I told her I wasn't seeing things anymore. I did mention it to my mother, but she didn't say much. They will put me in the nut house if I own up to it again.
The Psych did take away both medicines, and I finally got my ADD medicine back last fall, I believe. If I don't have it, I just stay in bed, depressed, having pity-party, and the house just gets worse and worse.
Anyway, now for the last month, or so, I feel like I have head/body lice. My daughter says it's only dandruff mom, and those Moxie drinks are making you think this way.
Now I really believe the sugar is what made them worse, aye? As a recovering alcoholic of 2 1/2 years, that was my reward when I wanted. Doesn't matter now, I still can't drink;o) Thank You Lord-Thank You Jesus=Amen!!!
Well now, I am sure I could go on, but this is more than enough for you to inhale today. Just can't take much more of this, don't want to be here anymore, and because of my daughter/family, and being Born Again, I have to just pray-pray-pray.
Just how did we acquire this wonderful, known to the world, recognized by hardly anyone, horrible problem? Could it be coming from all the imports we get from all around the world?
O-kay, for real, I am signing off. I have zero pictures, besides who would take them. Got lots of evidence, though.
Thanks soo much for your believing in us, your time, and I shall always be forever grateful with any/all you can do for us all;o)
Keeping The Faith-May You Keep Yours-God Bless Us All!!
I'm so sorry to hear your story. I want you to know that I have added you to my prayer list. I wish I could be of more help, but hopefully just knowing that someone cares and is praying for you will be of some small comfort.
