A fellow artist and Fortean alerted me to this disturbing and mysterious disease a little while ago because she suffers from it... and thought that High Strangeness might be a good way to help get the word out.
Interestingly, I remember seeing a piece on this on the tube at some indistinct point of time in the past... however I don't remember much of it's content except the imagery... which, for me perhaps is not unusual, as it was a good chunk of time ago and the images were most memorable.
The disease is mysterious in several ways... the cause is unknown... the cure is unknown... it features non-healing lesions on the skin... within which strange fibers grow like spaghetti and emerge from the surface... with eerie attendant seed-like things inside the lesions and strange black specks outside on the skin... it causes weird crawling and biting sensations in its victims... and does significant and serious neurological damage to memory, concentration and causes depression as well as other difficulties. It has raised it's ugly head in all fifty states, with some very unusual geographic clusters in California, Texas and Florida. There are cases reported worldwide, so it is a problem for everyone, not just Americans.
For me, what's even weirder than the disease is the reaction to date of the medical mainstream... these people have classified it as delusional! What the hell is up with that? That is disturbing... seriously so... to me... and hopefully to you. The lesions and the weird fibers within are very real indeed... how they came up with that classification is beyond my comprehension... and doesn't do the Hypocratic Oath much good... it makes me uneasy and angry.
