Mary and I go way back and she would rather have her eyeballs ripped out of their sockets then have me help her. Why?
Cuz when I had the opportunity to have her meet Elias Zehoui of the NIH she refused the invitation.
When I asked her if she wanted a friend of mine to write a grant for her so they can do the NIH thing she said she had her own people and did not need my help..well it never got done..I actually tried to do it with thehelp of non-scientist and it flopped because you HAVE to get a University to back you..she had that, she said...well it never happened.
They are really good at making the name Morgellons famous and getting PR and getting people to some legit docs. Cure wise or figuring it out..bopkas.
I have tons of stories I could tell ya but that is old water under a collasped bridge.
Eveyone thanks for the Birthday wishes. The first 24 years of my life I spent living and figuring out my difficult privledged childhood. The second 24 I raised a son and created a translation agency and got this disease and now take care of my mom as she did me. Now for the next 24 years I want to upset people enough to get the ones that can help to poop or get off the pot. Devils advocate....with an angels heart.
Love to all!
And I know people have their own minds...but we just had another suicide.
That is what happens when false hope after false hope happens by people making false promises and creating make believe stuff that eventaully falls on its face in the light of scrutiny.
I remember I stated that we had to watch out for those suicides. Now we have another one. That is my concern. False hopes by peopl playing games with our lives. It pisses me off. (Sorry P)
Sabrina, Randy and all:
Thank you for your kind and caring words. All of them are going into a binder for Travis' father along with his writings.
I want you all to know that there are many of us that are getting the word out about this disease.... so hang in there! This is our way to "Pay it Forward" in memory of Travis.
Pam - please feel free to email
Eyeballs ripped out of sockets?
I fail to see anything funny!
The Comfortzone 3 and Sherwoodforest? Who's fallen on their face under scrutiny?
Continued internet harrasement, ridicule and uncontrolled, unwarrented anger towards others who are working for recognition ...... and you wonder why people don't want to work with you?
The Sherwood Forest Group was to be a non-profit in Seattle when we moved there. I went all the way to make it a non-profit corp but not federally until we moved.
It was going to help get meds for free. I contacted many companies..and have you noticed ...they are now saying if you can not pay for them you can get them for a free....I had lots of talk with these companies..and would like to think I got them thinking about this idea..but I do not know.
I also never claimed anything and I never named anything without first discovering what it was.
So Morgi cult follower (only making a funny ..it was on Lymebusters) sorry to have annoyed you with facts.
And people are working with me. Smart, non-pompous , non narcassistic good hearted people who do not have ego problems..the ones that did ..are gone. They help me pick through all this stuff everyone is pulling of the net. Since I respect the fact that they are smarter than me when it comes to science.
So get off your hate kick of me would ya?
Someone suggested I work with Morgellons....I just told them that was not possible and why.
Is it a full moon already?
Due to family health reasons we were not able to move and it had to be placed on hold until we did move there. Now we are unable due to medical reasons which sucked us dry financially.
I was never part of the Comfort Zone three. That was Texmite..not me.
Nasty ain't ya?
OTHER WHO ARE WORKING FOR RECOGNITION.. there ya go.. you said it..not working for a cure..not working in behalf of sick people but WORKING FOR RECOGNITION.
Could not have said it better myself.
Beginning in the 1960s, a range of synthetic biodegradable polymers have been developed, including polylactide (PLA), polyglycolide (PGA), poly(lactide-co-glycolide) (PLGA), poly(e-caprolactone), polydioxanone, polyanhydride, trimethylene carbonate, poly(ß-hydroxybutyrate), poly(g-ethyl glutamate), poly(DTH iminocarbonate), poly(bisphenol A iminocarbonate), poly(ortho ester), polycyanoacrylate, and polyphosphazene. There are also a number of biodegradable polymers derived from natural sources such as modified polysaccharides (cellulose, chitin, dextran) or modified proteins (fibrin, casein).
To date, the compounds that have been employed most widely in commercial applications are PGA and PLA, followed by PLGA, poly(e-caprolactone), polydioxanone, trimethylene carbonate, and polyanhydride. Some of the common PLA products include tissue screws, tacks, and suture anchors, as well as systems for meniscus and cartilage repair. The first FDA-cleared PLGA product was the Lupron Depot drug-delivery system (TAP Pharmaceutical Products Inc.; Lake Forest, IL), a controlled release device for the treatment of advanced prostate cancer that used biodegradable microspheres of 75:25 lactide/glycolide to administer leuprolide acetate over periods as long as 4 months (replacing daily injections). Another drug-delivery device, the Gliadel Wafer (Guilford Pharmaceuticals Inc.; Baltimore, MD), is used to prolong the life of patients suffering from a particularly deadly form of brain cancer, glioblastoma multiforme. In this case, dime-sized wafers of a biodegradable polyanhydride copolymer—poly[bis(p-carboxyphenoxy) propane:sebacic acid] in a 20:80 molar ratio—are implanted directly into the brain to deliver a powerful chemotherapeutic agent (BCNU) that has deleterious side effects when administered systemically.
BIODEGRADABLE POLYMERS FOR TISSUE ENGINEERING
One area of intense research activity is the use of biodegradable polymers for tissue engineering, which can be defined as "the application of engineering principles to create devices for the study, restoration, modification, and assembly of functional tissues from native or synthetic sources."4 Candidate materials include natural polymers (fibrin, collagen, gelatin, hyaluronan), synthetic polymers (e.g., PLA, PGA, PLGA, ethylene oxide block copolymers), and inorganic materials (tricalcium phosphate, calcium carbonate, nonsintered hydroxyapatite

Uranium’s Effect On DNA Established
The use of depleted uranium in munitions and weaponry is likely to come under intense scrutiny now that new research that found that uranium can bind to human DNA. The finding will likely have far-reaching implications for returned soldiers, civilians living in what were once war-zones and people who might live near uranium mines or processing facilities.
Uranium - when manifested as a radioactive metal - has profound and debilitating effects on human DNA. These radioactive effects have been well understood for decades, but there has been considerable debate and little agreement concerning the possible health risks associated with low-grade uranium ore (yellowcake) and depleted uranium.
Now however, Northern Arizona University biochemist Diane Stearns has established that when cells are exposed to uranium, the uranium binds to DNA and the cells acquire mutations, triggering a whole slew of protein replication errors, some of which can lead to various cancers. Stearns' research, published in the journals Mutagenesis and Molecular Carcinogenesis, confirms what many have suspected for some time - that uranium can damage DNA as a heavy metal, independently of its radioactive properties. "Essentially, if you get a heavy metal stuck on DNA, you can get a mutation," Stearns explained. While other heavy metals are known to bind to DNA, Stearns and her team were the first to identify this characteristic with uranium.
Depleted uranium - what is left over when the highly radioactive isotopes of uranium are removed - is widely used by the military. Anti-tank weapons, tank armor and ammunition rounds are just some of the applications. "The health effects of uranium really haven't been studied since the Manhattan Project (the development of the atomic bomb in the early 1940s). But now there is more interest in the health effects of depleted uranium. People are asking questions now," Stearns said.
Her research may shed light on the possible connection between exposure to depleted uranium and Gulf War Syndrome, or to increased cancers and birth defects in the Middle East and Balkans. And closer to home, questions continue to be asked about environmental exposure to uranium from mine tailings; heavily concentrated around Native American communities. "When the uranium mining boom crashed in the '80s, there wasn't much cleanup," Stearns said. Estimates put the number of abandoned mines on the Navajo Nation in Arizona at more than 1,100
Well, just sounds like we are messed up. People are dying and the Gov't does not give a care- as long as they are not implicated......
I do believe what my friend Carrie from L.B. says. Re: flukes...oh yeah, I think the fluke larvea are taking over our fish, shrimp and is being spread via the birds as well.
I do not think this is the Morg monster though, just a bi-product of it.
As well as the tapeworms and protozoan parasites.
Bt poisoning at it's finest......Thanks to the good ole' govt and their
pesticides, their uranium from all the plants> coal burning plants are so
The pesticide run off into the estuaries are really a bigger problem than one realizes.
Mix this with the contaminated ballast from the ships and you got yourself one ugly looking micro organism.
Have a good day......do they even exist anymore?
This is sad and we need help.
Please someone answer this question I have asked for months:
Is the reason we are not testing positive for parasites in us due to
the GM of them?
I could be wrong cuz I am writing off the cuff from reading but Uranium is found in the red clay in our soil and isn't that RADON connected?
I need to check that out. I wonder if the soil in CA, FL, Texas is red clay?
Just a random thought.
Currently, the only active uranium mining in the country is being done in parts of Texas and in the Powder River Basin of Wyoming.

Earth has many ways to kill us. We keep on the lookout, and rightly so, for volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, landslides, flooding, cosmic impacts, climate change and falling rocks on the highway. Should we still worry about radon?
You remember radon—that radioactive gas that comes up from the soil and collects in basements and ground floors, sometimes in well water. Radon is a prominent villain in the United States, blamed for tens of thousands of deaths from lung cancer. Like asbestos, radon was looked at more kindly when it was new, and today it too is more feared than it deserves.
To the geologist, radon is interesting, not worrisome. For one thing, radon starts with uranium, which is worth knowing about for its energy content and its important role in the Earth's heat budget.
Uranium turns to lead via a long, slow cascade of nuclear decay, and radon sits at an important point in that process.

Not only does the radon nuclide decay quickly, with a half-life less than four days, but the next four nuclides in the cascade decay with a combined half-life less than an hour. In other words, radon packs a powerful dose of radioactivity, and because it is a gaseous element, it can drift out of the minerals where it forms into the air. Thus it's a good signal of uranium, even for buried deposits.
Radon loves fractures because they set it free. Solid mineral grains are a pretty good trap for gases, but break the grains and the gas escapes. So just having rocks rich in uranium is not enough—they must be fractured, too. Earthquake faults are often a strong source of radon for that reason, and changes in radon emissions are a well-known simple indicator of seismic stress and deep ground movement.
Radon is relatively high in uranium-rich rocks such as ancient granites, high-organic shales and coal beds. (Coal burning is a major source of uranium pollution.) The US map of potential radon reflects this geological factor.
The Radon Hazard
Lately the spotlight of panic has moved from radon to other subjects, such as mercury and airborne soot. The government has set reasonable radon limits that protect mine workers and other occupations with unusually high exposures. The Environmental Protection Agency urges the rest of us to test our homes and take measures against moderate radon levels, while admitting that good research is still needed.
Lowering radon levels is simple and fairly cheap. If the EPA's policy is excessive, it's a pretty benign excess.
Nevertheless, radon is a background risk to the average American who doesn't smoke. Consider a well-conducted study published in the June 2000 American Journal of Epidemiology. Press releases trumpeted its result—if you were an Iowa women who'd lived for 15 years in a home with radon levels above the EPA's "action level," you faced an estimated excess lung cancer risk of 50 percent! (More recent studies give similar results.) But your actual odds of dying from lung cancer due to home radon exposure, if you don't smoke, is about 1 in 100,000 per year, with a large statistical uncertainty.
Among smokers, radon has a substantial additive effect in raising the risk of lung cancer. High radon is not such a negligible risk for smokers.
If you care about the hazard of household radon, the authorities will help you investigate your risk and find someone to fix it for you. And you'll keep following the painstaking, expensive research needed to quantify this public health threat.
Making Friends with Radon
There are still reminders around of times when radon was desirable. Early in the 20th century, radiation was a full-blown health fad, and natural sites with high radiation were sought out for their curative powers. And at least two abandoned mines in Montana are reborn as old-fashioned radon centers—complete with glowing testimonials, so to speak—the Free Enterprise Health Mine in Boulder and the Merry Widow Health Mine in Basin.
But I think I'd rather be pampered in traditional Austrian spa luxury and hot water at Bad Gastein while I take my radon therapy. The medical patter is more persuasive there, and they seem to serve food.
PS: Frozen radon, which condenses into solid form at a relatively balmy –71°C, must be quite a sight. Evidently it glows with a bright phosphorescence from its own radioactivity, turning yellow through orange to red as it is cooled further.
