a man was put in a bed to sleep and the next day he was told a cholera patient died in that same bed, cholera is an infectious disease of organisms that eat the intestines.
the man became obsessed with the idea he had cholera, he developed MANIFESTATIONS of cholera and he died
problem was, no cholera patient ever died in the bed he slept in, the mans mortal mind produced the disease he feared and his errorful beliefs killed him
delusional parasitosis is a legitimate diagnosis.
others who think they have worms/morgellons have been diagnosed with dermatitis due to ptsd, and after thier minds were calmed with sedatives thier worm manifestations/ symptoms disappeared.
in Christian Science Healing forum i posted how people strain to see gnats and swallow camels.
the oldest recorded case of delusional parasitosis is in the bible, one of jobs false friends told job he had worms in his skin, of course this was an error and untrue. It took job awhile of understanding God to realize his false friends had lied to him.
People here scratch and mutilate thier bodies when the thought of parasites is just in thier minds and manifesting in thier bodies due to errorful thought obsesssion and focus on worms.
i guess if you do not study God obessesively and manifest Gods health you end up studying worms obessively and manifest them in yourselves.
