Linda G’s Story

While we probably have not spent quite as much money on Morgellons as some have, we nonetheless have spent most of our savings. We also had to cash out our investments to deal with the enormity of expenses on this condition we call Morgellons.

I still do not know exactly what transpired 3-1/2 years ago. Our whole house was infested with something that we could not see. It bit like nobody’s business! Even after disposing of 2/3 of what we owned, taking most of our furniture to the dump, tearing out wall-to-wall carpets, replacing floors, and on, and on, what it was, is a mystery still. At first, we thought it was birdmites only. The symptoms matched our own:

In the first year, I had large lesions or bites, mostly on my stomach. They got to the size of a quarter and a few scattered in various places on other parts of my body. My husband got bites too, but he was not bit as often or as badly as I was. I developed an allergy to their bites and the lesions would become very large and itchy. A biopsy by a dermatologist indicated that the bites were insect related.

I haven’t had anything like this for two years now, but the neurological symptoms to some degree are still with me. I still have fatigue that comes and goes. I have difficulty walking and often have pain in my legs, hips and feet.

In the 80′s, I did a lot of gardening. I took a course with the County Cooperative Extension and the University of California and got my Master Gardener certification. I wanted to do that full-time. I often visited botanical gardens and famous gardens in our area. I still love plants and nature. It was during the time when I was in the garden for hours that I got extremely sick.

Years later, I learned that I had Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia. My point in telling about this is that, during this time, one of my symptoms was a feeling in the scalp and under the skull like I had ants walking in my cranium itself. Whatever this was caused extreme loss of sense of balance and it was hard to be in a car for any distance because I would immediately start feeling nauseous, not to mention extreme pain all over my body. It was nearly impossible to go on with daily responsibilities of being a wife, mother and owning and taking care of a house.

I now believe that, also in the 80’s, I was struck with Lyme Disease. Then, no one thought about it much or knew what to test for, although I was given the usual battery of stool parasite tests. Nothing ever showed up in any test given. I am wondering now if the symptom I had was similar to a re-exposure of Lyme Disease in the last 3-1/2 years. Although I don’t know what the vector was 3-1/2 years ago, I believe I was re-infected again with Lyme Disease and so was my husband, who tested positive for Lyme as well.

I don’t know yet whether I will try F-5. Many of my symptoms are at a very low level. I may need to take F-5 or F-6 in the future, so it is a wait and see situation.

I’ve taken so many antibiotics, anti-parasitics, anti-fungals, herbals like Cat’s Claw (Samento), Teasel (which really helps with Lyme symptoms), Artemisinin, homeopathics, MMS, and many more. I am grateful to know that F-5 was produced by someone who cared enough to dedicate time and money to fill this tremendous need. I am hoping this turns out to be a cure for those of us with Morgellons. It really does give a huge dose of hope.
