From Cliff Mickelson
Hi Jeff - Per your request for further information about the impact of Morgellons on the mind. As you know, I've had it for over 10 years and offer this information based on all of that experience and, as you well know, many years of intense research into this catastrophic affliction. Your 8th Morgellons Special - Psychological, Emotional, Personality and Relationship Impacts - should also be listened to carefully by all Morgellons victims.
I sincerely hope the below helps. - Cliff
Morgellons Destroys Relationships, Families & Happiness
By Cliff Mickelson
It has long been common knowledge among Morgellons researchers that the effects of this emerging plague are not limited to simple physical manifestations. As do many other new and emerging diseases, Morgellons attacks the mind of all victims as well as their body. In so doing, it is at once both obvious and subtle in it's symptomology. Perhaps the most pervasive and common baseline defining this duel attack is a form of Depression that often makes its appearance during the early onset of the condition.
Depression is an insidious condition that debilitates a victim while often leaving them completely clueless as to the process that is affecting them. Of course, as we know, Depression is not the sole domain of Morgellons victims. It is an "umbrella" condition and finds fertile ground in many traumatic life-events as well as pathologies.
It is important at this juncture to emphasize that the demonstrative behavioral effects upon the personality of a subject afflicted with Morgellons, (and to some extent, Lyme) generally go beyond the normal behavioral parameters that define classical Depression. We can call it Depression with a "twist".... It is a curious phenomena and one that is still poorly recognized and/or understood.
For lack of more concise terminology, the "twist" can be roughly described as "selective negative personality trait enhancement."
It is an extremely novel and subtle effect but one that is part and parcel of the Morgellons personality profile.
The denial that accompanies this behavioral modification is commensurate with that of Depression. The victim rarely notices their own negative enhancements. However, such changes do not often escape the notice of those closest to the victim. They in turn, often find themselves increasingly powerless to negotiate a relationship where the rules they formerly co-existed by no longer apply or are being arbitrarily changed.
As a result, many Morgellons victims unwittingly engage in a form of relationship 'suicide' where relationships are almost invariably destroyed by stealth personality traits that target the very people closest to them and who form their primary support system.
Behavioral modification in a Morgellons victim generally occurs in the initial stages of the disease. These appear to be changes that are always rooted in the natural proclivities that existed in the makeup of the personality prior to affliction. However, prior to Morgellons onset these personal and socially counterproductive personality traits are ones that were usually partially or completely controlled, regulated or suppressed.
Morgellons appears to create in its victims a condition which allows a certain number of these formerly sub-dominant behaviors to become "enhanced" to varying degrees. During the high season of initial onset, a victim, (Even if he or she is made aware of the issue) will be unlikely to be able to exert effective self-control or to take personal responsibility for modified behaviors in question.
The forms and types of negative behavioral examples available for impartial examination are legion. Judgmental excesses as well as compulsive completion and procrastination issues are usually but not always the locus of these matters.
Fault projection in a relationship, (especially if the tendency was pre-existing) is also quite common. This particular enhancement is usually directed at a spouse or significant other. It is one of the more personally destructive effects of Morgellons and has been the ruination of many formerly healthy and rewarding relationships.
It is worth noting that most Morgellons victims who have weathered the first few years of affliction have slowly come to an awareness of this phenomenon and it's effect upon their lives and the lives of those around them. With the dawning of this awareness comes a belated self-understanding and the beginning of the painful journey toward a compromise/solution that enables the Morgellons patient to engage in a functional or semi-functional life once again. It is long and difficult struggle but one that is its own reward in the end.

This was very helpful for me. I am fighting to keep my relationships intact. I do not feel or think the same as I used to. I am so different now, and I cannot seem to get my old jolly self back and everyone does not understand.
