Tracking the Morgellons parasite has been very tough! This is why our researchers have not been able to find a cause. If they are not living with the disease, it would be almost impossible for them to figure it out. Many bugs hide until dark before coming out while others, like beetles, play possum and don’t move. This makes identifying smaller insects hard - especially when you don’t know what you are trying to find. I spent 2 years yelling at my family for tracking a lot of dirt and debris on my floors. I had gravel delivered to reduce the mud outside and built a block patio. When my clothes developed some holes, I set out glue traps. I caught bugs and larvae but not what I expected. Upon further investigation I discovered my hardwood floors had damage. When fumigation didn’t cure my problem, I knew I was onto something. I am going to detail how I discovered the Morgellons Parasite in my floors and furniture. Delusional Parasitosis has hereby been proven to be an imaginary disease of the CDC!
Once again, I am not a Doctor with an official title nor do I belong to any research center. I am a long term sufferer of Morgellons Disease that happens to be a mom. The love as a mother and the desire to protect my family has been a driving force for me to figure out this Disease. I have spent more time tracking it than trying to treat it. This parasite has an amazing ability to adapt and change. I knew the only way to really protect my family was to discover the cause. After I found chewed up floor boards, I tore my house apart looking under and behind everything. What I found was shocking. I discovered clothing with the cotton seams chewed and holes in certain fabrics. This was hard to decipher because perhaps I had multiple bugs in my house. Right? My home has hardwood floors, rooms with wall paneling, and closets lined in wood too. I have a lot of wood furniture as well. I found fiber ball nests of something under my dressers and behind my desk. The scariest discovery was that the most prevalent areas of damaged wood was around chairs my family used, under my dogs pillow and around our beds. I had to figure out if the damage was caused by parasites coming from me, OR were the bugs following us to feed on dead skin cells and hair? I purchased my home 5 years ago and the floors were refinished so the new damage was obvious. The most shocking damage was to the box springs under my mattress. Upon closer inspection the side of my mattress that was next to my dog’s bed, was very dull. Mattresses have a shiny finish and mine looked like the top finish was gone. In fact, you could see the threads - all the fluff was gone. This is why I had my home fumigated.
After I fumigated, I hauled every mattress in my home to the dump. But while doing this, I made a 2nd discovery. I noticed the surface on my older mattress was covered with fuzz balls. There was so many I decided to magnify them with my camera. They looked like little cocoons inside the fuzz - no movement of any kind though. When I smashed them they were crunchy and under water, white slime/worm shaped bugs rose to the top. Today, I spray my mattresses weekly with a mixture of rubbing alcohol, peppermint oil and cinnamon oil. Sometimes I add tea tree oil. I also started treating my laundry with the 3 oils. The 1st treatment to my towels produced the largest lint trap full of fuzz and fibers. One of my kids used to complain about feeling hair (Fibers) on their face after drying off - not any more.
Two weeks after fumigating I spilled a pop on the floor. 5 Minutes later, I had fibers and the stuff in the picture below coming out of the floor. We don’t leave any garbage or dirty dishes laying around. It’s an attractant just like it is for other bugs. I finally figured out my floors were dirty all the time but it wasn’t from my kids or pets. I had been scrubbing my floors constantly and nothing seemed to help until I started spraying. I used my last of savings and hired someone to help me treat all the wood in my house. It was a huge job! I discovered that the bottom edge of my kitchen cabinets were covered in yellow sacs with an attached fiber. When I started treating my baseboard trim, large clumps of fibers, parasites and specs came out. My rough wooden stairs actually grew fibers out of the corners. I now spray some area of my house every day . It’s a big job so I rotate where I spray. I no longer get large clumps anymore. I am feeling a lot better too!
The job doesn’t end here though. You will also have to treat your cars, garages and any cloth in your home. Clothing and bedding can be frozen in sealed plastic bags if that makes it easier for you. Make sure and check all the jean pockets for lint. I have found more problem areas in old coats and pant pockets. First of all, roll the fuzz out with a lint roller. Then wash them with the oils mentioned above and freeze them for a few days. Hot water does not kill a bad infestation alone. I lint roll all my socks before washing and don’t forget your shoes! I keep mine sprayed and tied in plastic bags. I periodically freeze them too if my feet start itching. ObviousLy, the fuzzier clothes and blankets are at risk for infestation. Mine are all sealed in garbage bags until I use them.
I know this sounds like a lot of work and it is! However, it has changed my life in the last year. I will share in more detail next week about my continued research in trying to identify these parasites, and where the glass is coming from that so many experience. I will also talk about other treatment options and how to help your animals. Stay positive! I was in bad shape and preparing to die. If I can get better, so can you! I am not cured, but I am living life again. And before I forget, I have prayed for God to direct me in my research. I have to give credit to Him for helping me every step of the way.
