Why is there so much Morgellons in California?
Note: Although California represents 12% of the US population, 26% of all who have registered with the Morgellons Research Foundation reside in California
Now it’s tempting to say things like “California is full of dirty hippy druggies!”, but that’s not really true. Besides, most of the Morgellons sufferers are nice middle-aged white women.
So, why this disproportionate number of Morgellons sufferers from California?
Note what the above is measuring – it’s a percentage of all who have registered with the Morgellons Research Foundation. i.e, over the internet.
How do people find out about Morgellons – on the internet.
How do people share their photos of fibers – on the internet.
How do people form communities to share stories of their illness?
The internet – a common factor in Morgellons suffers.
Morgellons is an interesting syndrome because of the visual aspect – fibers, and hence photos of fibers. Lots of sites have many many photos of fibers. These sites really need a broadband internet connection (DSL or Cable Internet).
In June 2004, California had 13 broadband lines per 100 persons, and the rest of the US had 9.
Could it be that there is more Morgellons, because there is more broadband?
These simple figures don’t tell the whole story either – California’s population is clustered into cities. The Morgellonites in CA also cluster around the four major population centers. In those population centers, the access to broadband internet is unparalleled through the United States. People in Urban California have the best availability to broadband internet in the country.
If Morgellons is a phenomenon fueled by the internet, then obviously there would be more cases in California.
California is a unique state in many ways – perhaps there are some other factors?
San Fran has one of the highest rates of asbestos and other natural mineral fibers in the air, due to old building deconstruction, and Florida state is high too, but I don’t quite think that causes Morgellons Disease, though. Your theory sounds logical to me.
Logical hey? Lets sing the “Logical Sound”.
Morgellons Disease Sufferers are WORLD WIDE Smileykins.
Your gonna end up chasing your little tail.
California is a bizarre state in so many ways, this is the least surprising. Interesting theory– there is a correlation between the number of internet lines and the number of Morgellons registerees.
Abac, please explain an alternative theory for why California has a disproportionate number of Morgellons registrants?
Does anyone know what happened to that CRAZY woman?
that crazy woman was me, ABAC – Aussie Bad Arse Chick (sorry for the language Michael)
Sarah – to answer your question on why so many Morgellons registrants are from Calfornia – my guess hear, don’t take my word for it though, religion. “Calothumpians” is the nickname I give to people in California. I am not putting anyone down by using that terminology.
I believe in God and that is what helped me to recover from DOP. I nearly lost the plot and went completely insane, running around like a lunatic, but after I did some ground work I figured out how to deal with this, and that was through God.
I’m sorry I yelled at you when you came to this blog. As you know I was using the username sarahconnor and I didn’t like the fact that we had the same name. Then stupid me started posting under my real name on this blog, that is when everything fell apart. I think I have learnt a very big lesson about the internet. It is a very dangerous place at times, but on the flip side, the internet saved my life.
And I reckon the internet might save a lot of people. I hope so anyway, that is way I continued to fight the Morgellons Movement.
I do look forward to hearing what the CDC have to say. DOP is a terrible condition to suffer, the pain is real physical and mental, I am very lucky to be alive.
If you don’t believe me – do your science, and prove me wrong.
We will see what happens anyway. This world is not entirely made up of bad people, there are a lot of GOOD people in this world, with big hearts and a lot of LOVE.
Stop looking for the Morgellons pathogen people, especially those of you who are still very ill. Rest up, take care, you will be okay.
That would be because they were researching me!! I am the human subject.
Nanobot extradonair! so can people quit following me now please?! and I’m not talking about the internet.
Who are “they” who are researching you? And who is following you?
This might sound far fetched Sarah, but I feel I am being gang stalked and have been for as long as I can remember.
Certain events in my life have & will make this condition morph.
Not only events, but reading books, any sort of book, television, movies, touching people, talking to people, even living & breathing. I’m not sure where this thing will take me to next, but I am not looking forward to it.
