My Aunt had Morgellons and overcame it...
My Aunt had Morgellons and overcame it. I thought I would share her story here since it is rare...
My Aunt has suffered from Alcoholism and Manic Depression for years, was doing better and made the move from her parents house into her own apartment.
The previous renter had lived there for some twenty years and had also died in there. A couple weeks in to her stay at her new place she started noticing sores around her belly button. Soon she had them on her head.
They were open wounds and she said little bugs would hop out of them. When they would crawl in the sore, she could see them travel under her skin. She would often pull little fibers out of the sores too.
My aunt went to her doctor immediately and, of course, the doctor thought she was crazy and put her on new medicines. My aunt would see a new doctor, and again, the same reaction each time.
They all thought she was going off the rocker again! I had a hard time believing her too, because of her mental history.
Then one day my other Aunt was with her and she saw the bug jump out of the sore on her head! At last... somebody believed her and she had some support.
Now that she knew for sure she wasn't crazy she got online and started researching it. She read up on Morgellons and took it to a
specialist (homeopathic) doctor in the Bay Area of Ca.
The doctor believed my aunt, put her on a small dose of Arsenic, and within a month she was free of her disease.
The sores healed up, she moved out of that horrible apartment, and hasn't had a problem since!
Wow Jessica! What a story! Thank you so much for taking the time to share it here.
I'm so glad to hear that your Aunt is well again. I'm sure that will give other Morgellons sufferers hope for their own future.
Arsenic? Amazing. I would definitely only recommend someone try that with the supervision of a medical professional. It would be too easy for someone to overdose and poison themselves to death, of course.
I'm so sorry and frustrated when I hear the way that many people are treated by mainstream doctors. It's really unconscionable, in my opinion.
Obviously, there is no way any person is going to have all the answers. But to tell people they are crazy or imagining things because you don't know the answer is just wrong.
It's my hope that websites like this, and testimonies like yours (and your aunt's), will be an encouragement to people to take heart and hope and consider alternative means of finding a solution to their tough medical and health issues.
Thanks again, Jessica, for telling us how your aunt had Morgellons and overcame it.To her continued good health!
