Jeeez CLEW!!! I AM new on this site and your photos are quite impressive!
My brother visited recently (we are both from gulf coast as well, but I moved to the desert 8 years ago after hurricane ivan), but he is still living there. Recently in past year and a half, he has been convinced he is dealing with allllllll sorts of parasites. I was worried at first that he is really sick, but then with my pre-med background and natural skepticism, I unfortunately felt doubt creeping in. The main reason I was skeptical is because all of the things he was showing me (on q tips, etc, and not in microscopes) were exactly things I've had since probably the beginning of time.
I actually had a "full" sinus surgery - all turbinates, sinus cavities, etc, and they told me my surgery was the WORST CASE OF SINUS DISEASE and the MOST FUN SURGERY THEY EVER DID. Go figure - DEVILS!
Anyway, i have always joked that there are huge blue and black aliens coming out of my nose and I don't think I can say there actually has been one day of my life where I actually felt well. Don't even get me started on the lesions!
I told my brother of these "aliens" as I called them (and at the time I didn't even believe in actual aliens from outer space, etc), and then he told me about morgellons. I was interested and said okay lets cut the BS with the q-tips because my eyesight has fallen off a cliff recently and with all these weird things swimming around in my eyes, I honestly cant see anything, so we went and bought a little handheld........AND VOILA!!!! THE FIRST THING WE SEE COMING OUT OF ME IS TONS OF BLUE FIBERS!!!!
Naturally I realize we are on to something, and I tell him, this little handheld lighted 60-100x scope WILL NOT do, so i Immediately ordered the Amscope 40-2000x with a 2mp camera (amazon $1800 on sale for $280). Last night was the first time I was able to get the thing up and running and the camera connected, & through the lens its remarkable, but the camera just doesn't seem to capture what I am seeing in the lens. Do you have any advice for me?
Also, You seem to be testing urine. Should I be looking at that, too? I have had lesions on face and legs that haven't sometimes healed for over a year! I couldn't even leave the house! They were so painful I wanted to burn my whole face off because they would constantly ooze and never heal!
My youngest brother is 3rd year medical school and I have been hinting about candida in my blood, etc, and he told me I would be dead! HA, TYPICAL NAZI DOCTOR BS - i read somewhere else on here their doctor said the same thing! And creepily enough now he wants to "gift" me a "23&Me" DNA TEST FOR XMAS! I SAID HELL NO!!! THERES NO WAY THE WENCH OF GOOGLE IS GETTING MY DNA!
Sorry for the extensive background info, but I was just wondering if there were some areas I need to be looking into - the "good blue stuff" (lol sorry i have to keep humor in my life or else I'll go off the deep end) came out of my nose after i put some diluted oil of oregano around the opening of my nose. I also wondered how on earth you were able to take such magnificent photos.
Thanks so much and I sure hope you all feel better!
One thing I would like to mention, is that I have been so deathly ill in so many ways for so long, but one huge issue has been my ADHD. I did a lot of research and through trial and error decided no matter what, i had to give up gluten. Once i gave it up, A MILLION THINGS started changing! No more lesions (they only now pop up if I have been glutened), and no more brain fog. I knew I was onto something, but I figured I'd be about a 5 on a scale of 10 for gluten sensitivity, but 15 months later, it's painfully obvious i'm an 11 on a scale of 1-10. If you ate a muffin and sneezed near me I'd break out in hives, immediately develop a cold and sinus infection from hell, and then the lesions would follow within an hour.
Hope maybe this will help some of you. If i can figure out how to post one of my not so great pics from last night I will.
Thanks guys and you are all my new heroes! So glad I didnt decide to become a NAZI - um, I mean DOCTOR!
LOVE TO ALL AND HAPPY HOLIDAYS!
