OK, this is Scary

MySA.com : Printer Friendly Story: "If diseases like AIDS and bird flu scare you, wait until you hear what's next. Doctors are trying to find out what is causing a bizarre and mysterious infection that's surfaced in South Texas.

Morgellons disease is not yet known to kill, but if you were to get it, you might wish you were dead, as the symptoms are horrible.

'These people will have like beads of sweat but it's black, black and tarry,' said Ginger Savely, a nurse practioner in Austin who treats a majority of these patients.

Patients get lesions that never heal.

'Sometimes little black specks that come out of the lesions and sometimes little fibers,' said Stephanie Bailey, Morgellons patient."

I hope you're not planning on bringing this along to Bouchercon this fall.

If I get this, I'll be so scared that I'll never leave the house.
