Television likes to entertain. When you see television stories about Morgellons, they invariably show someone who has horrific open sores on their skin. This is very dramatic, and elicits sympathy for the sufferers, as well it should.
Then, when later in the segment they trot out their “Other side of the Debate”, they imply that the doctors will say “it’s all in their heads”.
The viewer might be confused at this point, since as the patient is obviously suffering from a horrible disease that causes nasty looking open sores, then how can it be all in their heads?
Well, I don’t think it’s all in their heads. But the open sores do not always have an entirely physical cause.
Look at these two photos:
The photos show a woman’s back covered in sores and scars. They are very similar except that the one on the right has less sores and scars.
Same woman, different times? No. Two different women, one of whom claims to have Mogellons, the other was diagnosed with Neurotic Excoriation. Which is which?
Here are the sources of the photos:
And here’s a very short article explaining what NE is, the suprisingly high incidence, and the MANY causes:
I highly recommend the above article, I wish someone could show it to the producers of future news stories on Morgellons before they hurt more people with their misrepresentations in the name of entertainment.
