  1. Hi Jeremy, thank you for the interview with Dr Feldman. Despite the many facets of my life that have been ruined due to Morgellons including having PTSD because I’ve had it for longtime, my hope is that others will have a better chance than I did. Given that, it was good to hear that Dr Feldman seemed to agree that Morgellons isn’t delusions and maybe a immune system issue (atleast that was my understanding). My hope is that he takes the next step and convey that to his dermatology associates. I feel patients will far much better if they are told they have an unknown underlying medical condition associated with their symptoms. I was horrified to read dermatology research papers in 2019 stating they gave “Morgellon” sufferers anti delusional medicines. That stuff can cause longterm damage and shouldn’t be administered by a dermatologist if they can’t distinguish between delusions and Morgellons. With that said, my point is that does he realize that Morgellon suffers could acquire TD (or maybe worse) Additional to Morgellons because of the treatment some of his associates are proposing?
