Hi, This is David, I do the political art here at Rense.com. Earlier this week, I received the following distressing letter from Laurie, who, along with her family and pets, have been stricken for the last 14 years with an emerging and mysterious affliction called Morgellons.
She wrote to ask if I would create a Morgellons art image that could wake people up to the fact that, not only are thousands or millions now suffering, but we might ALL one day be in grave danger from its nightmarish effects. So, I read the letter again realizing how difficult it could be to illustrate Morgellons – that is, until I came to the very last line. I could then clearly visualize the concept that became the splash art you see now.
The truth is, this is an extremely difficult subject to confront, so I dare everyone to read Laurie’s entire letter; to really consider her and her family’s situation, and try to imagine how you might begin to handle it yourself. It is my hope that all of us will read the abundance of Morgellons data, including videos and photographs, on rense.com, and then listen to some of the special Jeff Rense Morgellons programs. Look on the left side of Jeff’s homepage for the Morgellons link image. You can also Google Morgellons and study even more photographs. Hopefully, you will then email some of this data to your doctor, local hospitals, medical community and public health agencies. We all need to become far more aggressive in researching and implementing proper treatment for this terrible, devastating science fiction-like disease, or syndrome, or whatever it is.
And now here is Laurie’s story…
Dear David Dees…
I see your work every day on Rense.com. Thank YOU for your talent and gifts to the world.
I want to ask you to please do something for all of us FAMILIES suffering from Morgellons (there are 11,046 families KNOWN to be infected). My husband and I, and our pets, have been sickened with this disease for 14 years now. The CDC has been warned for at least 10 years that something HORRIFIC was happening to people, and yet they choose to do essentially NOTHING (except appoint a ‘study group’) to help the infected – even though entire families are being stricken and ruined by this disease.
‘BIO-remediation’ may be killing the planet. My husband was infected at a chemical plant in Freeport, Texas – one of the hot spots of Morgellons disease. We have poured our hearts out on the New Morgellons Order Web site – we were the Morgies of the Month for April 2007 – and I have sent hundreds and hundreds of emails to news media, medical universities, medical hospitals, the White House, you name it. I’ve written to the NIH, WHO (every office worldwide), you name it and NOT ONE PERSON contacted me. The TRUTH, you see, is too frightening.
Back in 1993, my husband was forced to work around MANipulated NANO-engineered microbes. It cost $10,000 for one 35 gallon barrel of these microbes back then and they used about 2 barrels a month at this wastewater treatment plant inside the chemical plant. He was given NO SAFETY PROCEDURES, NO PROTECTIVE CLOTHING, nothing… and there was NO PROPER TESTING to ensure the safety of the maintenance workers forced to work around these open pits and blowers harbouring these microbes. In fact, they would be working and oiling the blowers while they were still running and pouring a mist into the air all around the wastewater treatment plant – a heavy fog, really. These microbes could have been be airborne in that mist NO PROBLEM. In fact, the parking lot for the chemical plant workers was right beside the wastewater treatment part of the plant. The fog hung thick in the air around the parking lot. No wonder this area is considered a hot spot for this disease. The truth will prevail as more and more families are sickened with Morgellons…or whatever it is.
We tried to bring the turth out legally through one of the top environmental attorneys in the country but were told we had exceeded our “Statue of Limitations” – meaning we took too long, even though the CDC and the medical community hasn’t got a clue what’s going on. We were supposed to figure this all out much sooner by ourselves.
It has been recently shown through the work of private researchers with Clifford Carnicom leading the way, that something is very wrong with the blood of the Morgellons-infected. We have been infected for 14 years now and there is no doubt the public blood supply is compromised and in danger. I would also propose that this disease can transfer from an infected mother to her unborn child. This is a SILENT EPIDEMIC and it has been spreading for years now. The medical community – especially DERMATOLOGISTS – have their heads up their asses on this one. Even when a Morgellons patient has been certified NOT CRAZY by Phyciatrists, these same dermatologists have taken it upon themselves to prescribe ‘anti-phycotic’ drugs to Morgellons patients. The dermatologists deemed us ‘delusional’ and ‘crazy’ with no serious testing on their part or ANY clinical research to back them up.
Morgellons-infected live with open lesions on their body. The left side of my scalp right now is horrendous…lesions creeping and hair loss spreading. My forearms and face and neck at any time can be littered with lesions, and that is just the beginning of what we go through continually. Among many other thinngs, we must also try to deal with:
Eye floaters and constant grit in our eyes.
Almost instant overheating and sweating of our bodies
Chronic fatigue as these ‘micromachines’ feed off of our energy, zapping nearly every ounce of stamina from us…even small tasks become overwhelming.
Insomnia…chronic and dreadful.
Deteriorating condition of our teeth and tooth loss – my husband has lost 4 teeth and my teeth are deteriorating even though for 38 years I was told what beautiful teeth I had.
Chronic physical wasting – my husband has lost 40 pounds in 4 years I lost 30 pounds in 3 years but for many years I was constantly bloated in my stomach and abdominal area.
Constipation and/or diarrhea…either one or the other, and IBS-type symptoms.
Ringing and thumping in the ears…like tinnitus, but not.
David, there are 93 reported symptoms by the researchers investigating Morgellons. I believe my husband, pets and I live with about 30 of them every day.
I have to mention how this disease effects you mentally. One of the first neurological symptoms we faced was the loss of words. We found ourselves stuttering over the most simple known words that just don’t come easily anymore, or at all. So you stutter and stammer or often just insert almost ANY word in a sentence while your mind searches for that word you have known all your life. The brain fog and inability to stay centered on things is simply horrible. My husband has developed a left sided limp and his left foot feels numb or dead to him and even trips him occasionally.
Upon standing, he gets dizzy spells like vertigo but milder in nature. We both have had severe lower back pain that required pain management specialists and cortisone injections by catheter within months of each other…..we both have had liver counts shoot off the charts…and then drop back to normal.
I have found that my desire, or willpower, is gone…even to do the things I Love…which now all sit idle. Morgellons strips you of your creativity and at times I find it very difficult to stay focused. And then there are times you act compulsively or are obsessive in your actions. I never had any of these issues before Morgellons.
You can spend hours and hours tending to painful lesions every day. It feels like plastic or glass coming out of your skin. In fact, I have been SHOCKED at what has come from some of my deep lesions – and all I have is a magnifying glass. There are all the usual fibers and gristle-like things, and then there are red jello-looking globs which almost look like blood clots but are obviously not.
Going out in public has turned into a nightmare. Even in the heat of the summer, I have to wear long sleeve shirts and bundle up so as not to scare people. Morgellons can send your body heat zooming in moments…but we still have to cover ourselves in public. The whole disease is mentally overwhelming…it is anything but just a ‘skin condition’.
Perhaps the most devastating of all is the HELPLESSNESS…the complete failure the medical establishment has put upon us. I believe this is the first disease in history where the patients have had to resort to buying their own lab equipment to prove that the DOCTOR is the crazy one and not the patient. We pray every day the medical community will awaken to the fact that this is REAL and spreading and that they could be next. This affliction does not discriminate…everyone is at risk.
Morgellons is infectious or transferrable at close contact. Over the years (14), we have infected other family members including my husband’s daughter. Her first-born was premature and almost died and we expect any time now the child’s health is going to turn for the worse.
This disease takes time to replicate in your body, but over time you soon become too sick to work and soon after that, it becomes difficult to even do the things just to keep going. Morgellons could come to cripple the entire nation and I see it being far worse than AIDS in 20 years. This is a FAMILY disease. Not only are you infected, but in time the whole family becomes sick – including the pets. We have infected 4 dogs and 1 African Grey parrot. Two of the dogs and the parrot are dead.
Tunes, our Great Dane, came from dedicated breeders…all “show dog” in the blood line and a completely healthy background. At age 5, he became very sick and our vet said it was heart worms – and he underwent that serious heart worm treatment that can kill dogs. Tunes made it through…even though he hacked and coughed and was sick for some time. A year later, a woman approached us at the beach (we lived 10 minutes from the Gulf of Mexico) and asked if we were interested in breeding him – he was a big boy at 220 and big-boned. The mother was also a healthy Great Dane and carried the subequent litter which yielded 6 puppies. But then the mother became sick, and several puppies died, including one we had gifted to friends that died within weeks of coming home. The Vet, again, said it was heartworms. We believe it was Morgellons that caused the whole mess.
Henderson, our Blood Hound, was only 1 and 1/2 when he became sick. Coughing mostly, the vet diagnosed him with with ‘Dilated Cardiomyopathy’. His condition went down hill and before he reached 2, we had to put him down. It was VERY SAD. This disease took him fast…he might have been weak to begin with, we’re not sure, but it took him down in no time at all. He was still a puppy if you ask me.
Within six months of bringing the African Grey parrot into our home…she had plucked out every feather she could reach. She looked ready for the stew pot, and then died. We asked countless BIRD PEOPLE what was going wrong and even attended a bird show in Galveston looking for help. Some said it was her diet, others that she was lonely. Nothing ever made sense to us. She was gifted to us from Steve’s dad who had owned her for many years. Sammie had been pretty much alone…and had the same diet we were feeding her – fresh fruit, seeds and bird treats/goodies. In fact, she had more activity in our home than any time at his dad’s, so it wasn’t the lonely theory, either. Now, however, it all makes sense to me. Poor Samantha we just didn’t know then.
Beardsley, the second of our three bloodhounds, will be 10 in January. He has been sick for years now…rashes and sores, coughing, grit and discharge come out of his eyes, his ears need cleaning daily, and his head overheats at times just like ours do. He was also diagnosed with ‘Dilated Cardiomyopathy’ and placed on heart medication. Note that all these pets are from different breeders and all came from respectable people dedicated to their litters and healthy puppies. Beardsly even shows signs of obsessive-compulsive disorder sometimes – like just baying over and over at his ball until you nearly lose your mind…and either play with him or hide the ball somewhere.
AnnaBelle, our last bloodhound is 5, and started showing signs of Morgellons a couple of years ago…licking and picking at her privates more than she should and viciously biting at her forearms and forelegs and paws. There are times she is so obsessed with her biting you can’t distract her. She also gets the gritty, sticky discharge coming from her eyes, and her ears need attention every other day. And, again, like Steve and I, and Beardsley, she also becomes overheated very quickly and exhibits an extremely hot head.
The only good thing (counting our blessings) is that not one of our little friends ever lost their appetite, they always ate well. However, as much as I love animals these will be our last pets…considering what we know about Morgellons. I was beginning to wonder why everything that came into our loving home has become sick or has died. Now we believe we know.
David, I hope you can draw an illustration that would bring proper worldwide attention to this ever-spreading disease that the CDC is covering up for the EPA. Someone, somewhere in some government lab has created the DISASTER OF THE CENTURY. Everything is sick and dying. THEY created something with these MANipulated microbes that NO living thng on this planet is immune to. Hence, we may be facing the third largest extinction in the history of this planet. It is our belief that this microbe – be it nano-spawned and based, or bacterial or viral (which we doubt) is spreading around this planet. Although it may have been designed to eat and ‘process’ things like sewage sludge and oil and chemical spills, it is now eating US. Just look around the planet:
* Our bees are disappearing
* Toxic algae is overtaking waterways everywhere
* Dead Zones are ever-expanding in our oceans
* Fish populations are dying (and not just from overfishing like the idiots want us to believe)
* Coral reefs are dying
* Elk, Moose and Deer are dying from some sort of wasting disease (which appears to be a form of BSE)
* 189 species of birds are going extinct and populations everywhere are way down
* Frogs and snakes are dying from some sort of fungus
* Red TIDES and the ‘flesh-eating’ strep bacteria are invading our lakes and waterways
We believe Morgellons could somehow be involved with some or all of these conditions The Morgellons microbe – likely a nano-created, self-assembling, self-replicating monster – may have been designed to eat ‘nasties’ in the environment …but could now be infesting and killing life on the entire planet.
I lived life to the fullest before Morgellons. When I was heathly, nothing could stop me. I was the first female in the painters union in Vancouver, BC in 1978, and then one of the first females to ride with the Houston Fire Department for Emergency Medical Training. It was so wonderful and I learned so much. I even watched 5 different operations standing right next to the anesthesiologist, and worked many, many hours in some of Houston’s best trauma hospitals. It was facinating to watch these trauma teams do their stuff. I had one job in Houston at an old bank they converted into a blues club and had entertainment like Ray Charles, BB King, The Fabulous Thunderbirds, etc. I was a go-getter – nothing held me down. I never knew a ‘stranger’ and could talk to anyone. Now? I sit living life as a hermit, a chronically-ill hermit. Thank God Steve and I love each other so much. I would hate to be sick alone. We make the most of what has been dealt to us – we need each other as much as we love each other. I haven’t seen my family or friends for almost three years now as I’m in fear of infecting them.
I hope millions of people see your work and my story…and that their jaws drop to the floor. This is what needs to happen to wake the masses up. They need some shock treatment. Just posting the ‘wake-up’ isn’t doing it. EVERYONE needs to read the Morgellons data and view the images at Rense.com. Your work has a way of opening up eyes big and wide. Mine have been open for some time now…they can’t get much bigger. We are in deep, deep trouble on this planet of ours…
David, I do enjoy your work very much and I look forward to each new piece when I read my news every morning on Rense.com.
Take Care…and our Best Wishes to you during the holidays… from a very sick and frustrated Morgellons FAMILY,
