Congress - Force the CDC to investigate Morgellons Disease

3,076 Signatures Goal: 5,000

The undersigned citizens of the United States urgently request a U.S. government oversight hearing to determine why the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) is taking so long to investigate the cause of Morgellons Disease. The CDC has admitted that it has been receiving citizen complaints of symptoms of this disease for over a decade. Letters from senators from a number of states to the CDC calling for action on this apparently infectious condition that now affects about 9000 families have resulted in NO apparent investigation thus far by the CDC. Recently, a government oversight hearing was called for to investigate complaints of contaminated pet food and determined that there was system wide failure by the FDA to protect pets from contaminated foods. We believe ill and suffering individuals are at least as important as sick pets. There were a number of pet deaths attributable to tainted pet food. At least 15 persons have died directly or indirectly after being affected by Morgellons disease and thousands more are suffering and becoming disabled. Most were misdiagnosed as being delusional by dermatologists, largely untrained in psychiatric conditions, using badly flawed inaccurate and unsupportable assertions in the literature. Scientists have identified some of the physical manifestations of this disease using dermatoscopes, microscopes, DNA analysis and chromatography. The manifestations of this disease are real, multisystemic and progressive, not delusional. However the etiologic agent has so far not matched any known human pathogen. There is no cure. Time is of the essence since one half of the 9000 people identifying themselves as ill with this disease have done so within in the past six months. This may represent an emerging epidemic. In our opinion, the CDC is failing in its obligation of \"controlling the introduction and spread of infectious diseases,\" and we, the taxpayers have a right to know why this is happening and to have the current apparent failure of the CDC addressed immediately.

    IMHO one main problem concerning the burrowing monsters is this. If you really do accomplish a nearly insurmountable task, eliminating ALL of them, on you, in you, in your home, your car, you will suffer for years as your body fights to expell dead parasites, their feces which are composed of blood, bacteria & sh*t, and rebuilding a broken down shocked immune system. Think 9/11. They mess with not only your skin, but other organs as well; your brain. Mental prowess slows, severe headaches make it very difficult to concentrate. Secondary infections easily follow, some fatal. Constant fear that I may reinfest is mind-bending. I am afraid to hug a friend, and that breaks my heart. This is akin to cancer, MS, AIDS, etc. AND YOU KNOW THAT AND DO NOT GIVE A RIP!!! O and let's add insult to injury by saying we are psychotic. Info concerning the many different types of no-see-ums is all over the internet. good grief. can you not fathom that?? There is some way to avoid a lifetime of suffering and your job is to find it. so...do it. At least you can acknowledge it's existence. We are not stupid and therefore KNOW it is a clear and present danger. Burying your head in the sand infuriates us. Please PLEASE realize the urgency. And if it has been induced by indifference, God help you.

    This horrible illness needs further research. It's a combination of things and the medical community need to be more sympathetic and educated on how to handle the situation until there is a cure. I see these particles in many places that I go to and it's only a matter of time before it gets really bad!! It exists and people need to start learning and look for the first signs and start treatment to cure themselves. It needs to be known and how dare the government still genetically modify our food! That had to be stopped.

    I sat last night in agony and submitted my comment. I won't repeat all of the strange, painful and horrific symptoms, as I believe my comment will post soon. I WILL repeat my plea to the Congress of the United States to demand that the CDC, scientists, entomologists, pursue rigorous in-depth research regarding microscopic mites that invade, burrow and relentlessly torture people. Think of the babies and children. If, no not if...WHEN this hits someone with sufficient influence and means, then you will realize the severity. No, people, it is insidious, and it is here now. Please please find out how we fight back. I am sitting here feeling bites and stings, 3 weeks post treatment for scabies. It is an invasion. You can't see them, but they will ruin you. I am broke and my skin feels like I was skinned alive. Please hear.

    I am an American tax payer and request action now, not months or years from now. My best friend died from complications due to this disease in 2008! Why are we still waiting for help?
